Happy belated Halloween! I’ve made a clown outfit for myself this year. It’s inspired by Pierrot, the sad clown wearing a loose white costume with details in black. I didn’t have much time so I didn’t make a prototype to test the pattern but it turned out okay by combining and adjusting existing patterns for garments I’ve made in the past.
The white shirt is made with light weight cotton with a polka dot texture. The double layered collar uses a Swiss dot cotton fabric for the top layer and is trimmed with black satin ribbon. The cuffs are elasticated and frilly with matching ribbon trimmings. There are 2 handmade resin buttons under the collar with “M” and “S” buttonholes and 2 fabric pom-poms attached above press on buttons made with black fabric strips.
The diamond patterned trousers are made by patchwork using black and white cotton. The waist is elasticated and the hem is slightly pleated into the black binding for cuteness. I’ve included a photo of the reverse side of the trousers so you can see what’s going on on the other side of the diamond pattern, which is an interesting pattern as well. Hope you like it!
