Nothing says elegance quite like silk charmeuse. It’s lightweight, fluid, and just begging to be made into a slinky dress. If you’ve never worked with it before, a dress may be a bit intimidating for such a high-end fabric. Instead, try starting with a chic summer top! Our Luna Jumpsuit can be easily hacked into a gorgeous tank top with nearly no pattern alterations, making it the perfect option for Mood’s stunning Italian silks. Let’s take a look at how to do it!
Purchase Materials Used Below:
- 1 yard Italian Yellow, Pink, and Teal Geometric Abstraction Silk Charmeuse or Italian Seafoam, Purple and Yellow Bold Naturals Silk
- MDF296 – The Luna Jumpsuit Sewing Pattern (free download below!)
This pattern hack is one of the simplest out there – simply cut and sew the bodice of the Luna Jumpsuit!
If desired, you can also add 6″ to the length as I did for the non-cropped option shown above. If choosing this option, you may want to flare outwards at the waist 1″-2″ to accommodate your hips, but it’s not necessarily required!
