Hi There !
Army green, camo green, olive. Whatever you prefer to call it, you can’t escape it. This color is all over the runways, and has been for a couple seasons now. Another thing popping up all over? Balmain. The young designer is dressing everyone, and the collections have been more than inspiring season after season. I still keep going back to the military inspired show that was done a few seasons back. It was so iconic that I knew I had to make a piece inspired by the collection.
I had McCalls 6969 up on my design wall, but I didn’t quite know what to do with it. Looking at the line drawings it first struck me as super casual. This runway show was anything but. Then I noticed I could hack the top from view D and bottoms of view C to give me a more trendy look that would be more “heel” friendly. For this “Franken-pattern” I simply cut View D at the waistline, and taped it to the bottom of View C to make one continuous piece.
