    Rock Werchter – it’s all about the Party Waistcoat

    Rock Werchter is a 4 day Music Festival held in the little village of Werchter in Belgium, not too far from Brussels. My personal music highlights, to name but a few, were Florence + the Machine, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Howard, Wolfmother and Noel Gallagher & the Flying Birds. I had been busy in my sewing studio for the 2 months leading up to Rock Werchter, creating some suitable “Party / Festival” clothes.

    “Party Playsuit”

    I used this retro pattern I borrowed from my mum’s sewing cupboard to make this cute little playsuit/jumpsuit (View 2). I was busy sewing this garment the evening before I wanted to wear it, so  I was rather pleased that the pattern was really easy to follow, and total construction time was less than 3 hours ! I wore the playsuit to a friends farewell “summer party”. The fabric print is bright and cheerful, and the playsuit design reminds me  of carefree childhood summers. Link to previous blogpost with a picture of “Party Pant” and my “Party Playsuit” After the initial wear of the playsuit, I decided to made a…
