This series was challenging because the the front half of the garment had to be continuous, without any seams separating the body and the embroidered carwash edge of the fabric. Cutting garments on bias grain (not parallel to the edge of the fabric) can prevent issues with fit and growing, but we circumvented this by creating a separate pattern for fusible to be applied to the underside of the top half. This also reinforced the fabric for the machine-set "staple" hardware on the shoulder.
