Project Runway: All Stars - Part 6

Challenge:  Create a Sportswear Look


A what???  The term "sportswear" is so broad that it really just made this challenge more difficult.  Anything can be considered sportswear!

Sebastian and I saw a recurring theme on the runway - Capes/Cardigans/Jackets.  So, we decided on a dog coat.


Of course we stuck to our true style and used recycled clothing for this project.  I think the more worn out the denim is, the cooler it looks!

We cut and opened up one leg of the jeans and laid down our pattern diagonally, making sure it covered at least one hole.  We removed one of the back pockets too.

If you don't have a real pattern, just trace one out from a jacket your dog already has...that's what we did!

Then we cut out a piece of fabric for the lining.  I wanted a bright fun color knowing it would be showing through the hole in the denim.

Sew lining and denim right sides together at top edges and neckline.
Make notches around neckline and turn right side out.

Cover the rest of the raw edges with double folded bias tape.

Add velcro to both ends for neck closure.

Add straps with velcro for closure around tummy.

That's it!!!
