#Sewcialmashup for Instagram Challenge Using Two Butterick Patterns.

Reveal day for my #sewcialmashup and yes, I love it!  And yes, mash-up of two patterns is not my normal sewing so this was a fun challenge for me, too.

Some things I knew I wanted with my mash-up.... use two fabrics for pattern mixing, a jumpsuit with a more substantial top so I would be comfortable in church and I wanted to use my favorite gingham! The entire jumpsuit is knit, the gingham is LA Finch Liverpool Gingham Navy Knit and the floral is a knit from Hobby Lobby.

The bodice is Butterick 6628  and the sleeves are the length of the Scout Tee I just love the length of that sleeve.  I just placed the Scout Tee pattern piece on Butterick's 6628 sleeve and used that length with the cap and width of the 6628 sleeve.  The pants are Butterick 6691 
I measured the length top of the jumpsuit pattern, Butterick 6691 

I used the idea of View B on this pattern but didn't want the gathers, after looking at the pattern pieces, the left front did not have the gathers.  Yea, my two front pieces.  I measured the length of the left front and lucky for me it was not all the way down with the wrap.  It measured the same as the original piece, I added one inch, my usual alteration.  I am long-waisted.  

Then I measured this to the front, I needed to add some width.

The back, I drew in the center back seam and used it on the fold, I did not want a center back seam. I also measured the back to make sure it fit with to the pants measurement.

This worked really well and I love a good wrap

Now for the pants, I went with the length of View B and it was pockets.  I followed the instructions for construction and added the bodice like the pattern stated

The jumpsuit is for wovens - crepe, silks, rayons, etc.  I went with the knit and that was fine.  The pattern does have elastic casing at the waist. This worked great for the weight of my knit pants.
