All Dressed Up and No Place to Go - the Burda 06-2020 #101 Jumpsuit
When the June 2020 BurdaStyle magazine arrived I knew I wanted to sew the jumpsuit on the cover . And I don't even like jumpsuits. Then I picked fabrics that were not even suggested! I know, a sewing rebel, right? LOL. The jumpsuit is designed to be sewn in lightweight wovens, like a rayon challis. I loved the fabric of the sample shown on the magazine cover and really, really wanted to sew mine in something similar. Well, truth be told I wanted that exact fabric! When I realized I wouldn't be able to find something even close, I put the idea of sewing this jumpsuit out of mind. That is, until a sewing challenge on Instagram popped up. It was called a #sewingbowlchallenge. When you expressed interest in participating, the organizer pulled out components of the challenge from six little fishbowls (which is how the name came to be). My challenge was to sew 1) from a magazine or book 2) a suit, 3) in a neutral, 4) using colorblock, 5) with my choice of fabric, 6) in three weeks.
