So I made it to Challenge 2 for Pretty Girls Sew “Rippin’ Ain’t Easy ” Sewing Competition. For the 2nd Challenge- Military Inspired, design a jumpsuit using McCall Pattern M7330 and give some utility charm. So my initial design was to create the jumpsuit using denim, but I knew I wouldn’t get the fit I needed. Off to the stash I went only to find some olive green printed silk that I purchased from my local fabric store. I remember rummaging threw the big remnant bin to find 4 yards of this beauty. For the details, I added a tailoring hem to the pant and sleeves to imitate a roll up. Also, I opened the back to show fluidity in the fabric and lastly, I elongated the front pocket to add the pleated details. Also a lot of hand stitching went into this jumpsuit due to the fabric being so slick, there was no way top stitching was an option.
