While it is an easy pattern it actually took me about 4 hours from start to finish - lots of seams as 7 panels and 3 for the hood, then you do the same for the lining. I also top stitched the edge as with the felted wool it would not lie flat with just ironing in place.
For the button I got a vintage button from a local shop, makes it look quite retro I think. As you can see G is very happy with it, so hopefully it gets lots of wear this winter.
Phew - only day 3 of the sewing challenge and I think I have done 7hrs of sewing already ,so I am running out of steam a bit. I might try to get another pair of dortje pants made before the week ends but over several days. I have been watching a few other blogs and there progress - lots of lovely stuff being made.
