hipsters suspended

By spotogspindel | April 18, 2016

How to make your very own hipster-knicker:


You take one pair of vintage suspender-knickers from the late 60s.


You find a couple of portrait-photos of some cool hipsters, and draw them onto the water-souble-fabric.


Sew. A lot. Freestyle machine embroidery. In a slightly darker color than the vintage fabric.


After the algaenat is gone, you´re left with the hipster on the hip. On the up-side: the hipsters are kinda cool. On the down-side: all the elastic in the elastic-bands turned up D.O.A. and need to be replaced. Also it is very difficult to transfer a design onto elastic fabric, without there turning up wrinkles in the strangest places.


All in all though, I think the hipsters are here to stay! 😉
