Well I suppose I don't have to explain who Anne Frank was, but I interpreted the theme in a different way and there's a story attached that's probably less familiar.
I took the Anne Frank Tree as my starting point by hand painting a tree on a tank tee with black fabric paint, the pattern is the Twisted Tank by Titchy Threads.
I kept the whole outfit in black, white and grey just like the old photographs of Anne.
The pants are a pattern from the Ottobre 1/2015 issue (given to me as part of #parissewsocial), the rocking sweatpants. I took the largest size (a size 4), shortened the legs and rolled the hem up. This version is made with a grey sweatshirt fabric. I love the look of these pants with the lowered crotch, This is the second pair I made and more will follow for the boys this summer!
Do check out the outfit Pienkel made for the Mystery Challange today, it's fantastic! And thanks to her I got the kick in the butt I needed to finish this project. I had the idea in my head for ages, so no lack of inspiration, but I just couldn't bring myself to start sewing. Not sure why though, when I started it was fun, as always!
