This is a jumpsuit I designed to wear to Silicon Valley Fashion Week which was held in San Fransisco back in October. I wanted to create a classic silhouette but with a cool oversized lapel design to match the edgy atmosphere. The pattern is self-drafted and draped. As for construction, there is an invisible zipper in the back, the top ties into a halter, and heavy-weight craft interfacing was used in the lapels to give stability and shape. I used a lightweight rayon in this cobalt blue. The finished garment is a modern, semi-casual design that’s not too mature for a 14-year old (me!).
