As I mentioned in my last post, I had been working on my entry in the #sewingbolwchallenge on Instagram.
Well here is my entry!:
Yellow Paisley Franken Jumpsuit!
I had Challenge #2:
The requirements were the pattern be a McCall's, a jumpsuit, and a Franken Pattern.
M7716 and M6554
Would you believe that this was my first time making pants?!
I thought it would be a good idea to use M7716 as they are not tailored, perhaps it would be more forgiving. I used M6554 for the top because I have always like the bodice of the dress.
Other requirements were that it be made out of Linen or Denim, and it be yellow with a little paisley on the side.
Yellow Linen and Brocade Paisley Fabric
Being that the pieces are from two different patterns, I took my time to measure and cut out each:
Before the Big Cut
The Bodice Sewn and Pants Cut Out
I also thought about the zipper that I wanted to add, I mean a girl needs a way to escape right?
It's something soothing about sewing it by hand
I enjoyed the challenge very much and have already chosen my entry for the month of November. I will show you my choice of pattern and fabric in the next blog post.
