New York, New Yo...
for the sew weekly challenge of women in tv, i was inspired by boomer from battlestar galactica.
i wanted a military feel with a twist. the battlestar uniform includes two tanks tops, one worn sort of backwards over the other, so i needed a pattern that could be layered and a look a little tough. i LOVE this laura pattern! perfect for layering. i went with stretch jersey in a color i wouldn’t normally choose, topstitched till i went blind, and omitted the pocket flaps and buttons, going with an exposed zipper instead. it felt more “cylon” that way… more about that at oonaballoona: sew weekly sunday resurrection dress
this was a very springy material that stretched in all directions— i wish i knew what exact type of jersey it is, because i loved handling it. it made such a satisfying sound whenever i plunked it down on my ironing board. and it is ALWAYS cool to the touch. maybe it’s made by cylons.
