Pre Sign-Up Challenge
Fashion for a Cause
Each challenger that signed up was assigned a cause/charity to be inspired by. Since, I'm staff and knew what the numbers were linked to I let another participant choose mine... I got: Support the Troops (yellow ribbon).
I didn't want to go to camouflage. Instead I sifted back in time and picked out inspiration from various eras of uniforms. The tight fitting top is a take on the more modern undershirts, while the pants and spats are attributed to the revolutionary war up into WW2. The bodice is a mix of leather vest worn through out history and our modern tactical vests.
In order to include the yellow ribbon, I added on the loose belts about the legs which would be made of woven paracord.
My charity of choice will be Susan G. Komen because both my mother and my grandmother have, in the last year, been afflicted with breast cancer.
