WEDDING JUMPSUIT MADE WITH FABRIC FLOWERS
FROM M & S
After visiting and purchasing eight beautiful fabric flowers from M & S Schmalberg in January, I was inspired to create a formal garment from my uncle's wedding. Every aspect of the design, silhouette, color etc., was inspired by the flowers. The patterns, toile, and final garment were finished in a four day time span.
This one shoulder jumpsuit is made of a stretch satin and embellished floral overlay. The satin jumpsuit has a sweetheart neckline, with boning in the princess seams. There is an invisible zipper in the left side seam. The pants of the jumpsuit are made from the wrong side of the stretch satin, to give it a matte effect. They are wide leg bottoms, with a lot of added fullness. The overlay provides support, although it is only hand tacked at the side seams, center front, and center back. The scalloped edge of the overlay is used as both a design feature and hem to complete the look. The fabric flowers were hand sewn onto the overlay, bringing the whole design together.
This ensemble was completed during the second semester, junior year. I have since accepted an internship with the fabric flower company for the Summer of 2018.
