McCall’s M6969, You can’t even see it because it’s camouflage.

Bought this one at an actual store, not in someone’s yard! But don’t worry, it was on sale. Although I do not love shopping at JoAnn’s, I totally love their iPhone app and the fact that I can check it for pattern clearance sales and schedule a couple hours to go there and sit with the pattern book and look at every page and buy everything I want because at 2 dollars a pop, why not.

I have a friend who needed a unit/romper/jumper, and I already had the fabric.

the fabric
Digital camouflage cotton rip-stop! Bought this at Michael Levine Home Fabrics in downtown LA about five years ago. I think I had a plan for it when I bought it? Maybe? Something about blending in with robots? This is a better use anyway I’m sure.

what I changed from the pattern
Friend’s requests:
-square neckline
-No buttons
-Capri length
What else I changed to make it all possible:
-Center front on fold.
-Side zipper, lapped application. That beautiful metal zipper was in my zipper collection already. I’m so in love with zipper that I saved the extra after shortening it to the correct size. It’ll trim something someday.
-Two rows of elastic at waist, to make it look more solid and functional and also to actually be more solid and functional.
-Pockets. She didn’t ask for them, but I knew she’d want them. This ended up being kind of tricky with the side zip and the elasticized waist, but what-evs, totally worked out.
See? Look how cute:



sew it or throw it
Sew It. It’s cute, it went together without any weirdness even with all the changes I made, plus that wide-legged version looks like it might be worth a shot.
