I did it! I made a jumpsuit! I wore said jumpsuit! I LOVE said jumpsuit!
No seriously I love it! So loved it I was inspired to write this post last week about jumpsuits. Its a trend I’ve never really got on board with but when I saw Ali’s BHL Holly jumpsuit post I joined #jumpingintojune challenge.
I am very low maintenance and a lazy dresser so I like throw on and go items. My choice of jumpsuit was this reasonably priced Simplicty 1142. This tie waist jumpsuit can be dressed up and dressed down depending on the occasion. It’s a simple outfit that I can chuck on and never feel underdressed. I do feel like fabulous when I am wearing this. Will I be making more jumpsuits! Hellz YEAH!!!
The fabric is a polyester lightweight with good drape suited to this blousey jumpsuit. The fabric was quite slippery to work with but I managed. The print is busy and I can get away with imperfect seam matching. I picked up this fabric at an Essex car boot sale a couple of months ago : £3 for 4meters :-).
I love that its got pockets. Nice deep pockets.There is an elastic casing on the waist. I also added elastic to the leg cuffs for a more sporty feel.
I am a jumpsuit convert…so much so I bought the Holly Jumpsuit when it was on sale for 50% off! I will probably be jumping into July as well.
Have you been converted to entertaining the idea of a jumpsuit yet?
Happy sewing everyone!
