Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

JacketWrap the sleeping bag around a mannequin or model creating a cocoon shape with a high neck.
From the shoulder, gather up the sleeping bag to create a voluminous puffy sleeve. Secure with pins and tacks if necessary.
Secure the shape by sewing the folds down either by hand or on the sewing machine - you will need to use a thick needle and/or a higher foot as the sleeping bag is very thick and could break the machine.
Mark gather point of the sleeve (where it attaches under the arm) and secure with hand stitching.
Cut off the excess length around the sleeping bag - we decided to stop at the waist to create a short cropped jacket, over emphasising the shoulders. We then over-locked the raw edge and attached a hook and eye at the front.
TrousersCut down centre front by 30 cm to hip level to allow a new waist to be created. Pinned on model, and cut up from bottom of garment to meet the waist to open up completely, creating the front of the trousers.
Cut up to hip line on the back to create the back of the trousers. Pin together up to the crotch with the front to create the trousers legs, then turn inside out and stitch front and back together with 1 cm allowance.
Now attach zip, roughly 34 cm down the centre front of the garment, this should sit just below hip level, to allow a person to get in and out. 1. Start by having your zip open, and place the right side of your zip to the right side of the garment. Stitch close to outer edge to hold zip in place, then take a zipper foot, and stitch as close to the teeth as possible. Repeat the same steps for other side.2.Close up centre back crotch seam to finish.
Use acrylic paints to create a cosmos effect, by flicking the paint with a brush, and layering up the colours.
The original garment had eyelets, press studs and ties, so we utilized these features by threading the ties through the eyelets to alter the garment's shape and function.
