Commission - Eva from Metal Gear Solid

This was a commission for AnimeFest 2011.
The jumpsuit is of khaki twill.  I actually had a bit of trouble with it, because I had forgotten to compensate for the stretch allowed in the pattern, so the first jumpsuit I made wouldn't even fit my size 0 mannequin!  x.x  Thankfully, round two went much better, and I was able to tailor it to fit properly.
The thing that took the most time were the zippers! EVERY pocket on this thing has a large metal zipper on it, which ATE needles.  Blah.  But, I'm super pleased with how the whole thing turned out, and my customer looks totally amazing as Eva, so yay!

  1. Very nice fit (even if it took a couple tries). Jumpsuits can so easily lay badly (I speak from personal incompetence in this matter), but it looks great on her!
