I knew that I would be making Vogue 9259 again after the success of the first one. Its a pattern that comes so easily together that when I decided I needed a hot pink number for the summer I reached for it. Except for this time, I made the “shorty shorts” view A.
Here is the line drawing:
I used some crepe fabric that I picked up from The Shuttle in Shipley. It washed well and irons quite nicely. It has what I like to call a “spongy” like texture. I didnt like topsticthing the fabric because of the texture so I opted to use a fair bit of hand sewing where I could. I think it gives the jumpsuit a more luxe look, but thats just my opinion.
Speaking of pictures, do you recall me talking about the StitchRoom Sewcial? And how we had a photoshoot for up to 2 outfits in a professional studio ? Well guess which outfit I took with me for that? :-)…
I used some silk habotai to line the waistband which makes it so very comfortable. Unfortunately I didnt manage to get interior pictures but they can be seen here on my Youtube video.
Verdict: a cute and dare I say it “sexy” little number that my hubs loves :-). Good thing its comfortable too!!!
Thanks for stopping by, until next time, Happy Sewing!
Peace and love,
I have been nominated by the zaney Demented Fairy for this award. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her post and so I have jumped in too.

Here are “The Rules” to the “Mystery Blogger Award”:
Three things about me that you may not know –
I was a bed wetter until I was 11 years old. Brightest kid in school but I wet my bed – hence my firm belief in compassion for bed wetting in children. I know they dont want it to happen but its outside their control.
I failed my practical driving test 6 times when I was 18 and gave up. Then when I was 24 I got it the first time after I had waited months to book it in order to save up money in case I had to redo the exam again.
I am an introvert. Though I can be and do enjoy being around people it does tire me out and I need a recovery period.
The most embarrassing thing I have ever done. Way back when, I went on a blind date with a guy whom I totally ghosted by not answering calls or texts. About six months later I bumped into him at an event and I pretended to never have met him and played off how funny it is to find someone’s doppleganger. Yeah. Cringe.
Hugh Jackman and I will meet soon on a yacht cruising the Caribbean – our eyes will meet across a room where Careless Whisper is playing softly (it’s a Christmas cruise) and the electricity is tangible as we glide towards each other. He gazes into my eyes and says -“Is that a linen Giselle maxi dress with hand sewn sashiko embroidery?” I swoon :-).
Rome. Gelatarias around every corner – need I say more?
Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye. Seriously – I don’t want a funeral- I want a celebration of life and whats more life-affirming than getting it on eh?
Absolutely! Can you handle a table of 5 rowdy kids?
Now my turn! Here are my questions:
Blue skies, bright shining sun, birdsong. I love summer, the light grants bright vibrant colours. This July we have been out at dawn and dusk to catch the perfect light for photographs. I love how the linen shirt I made for my July Minerva make is in harmony with the current beautiful weather we are experiencing here in the North of England. Its almost as if when I ordered the fabric 3 months ago, I also ordered the perfect weather to wear it in once finished!
Thanks for stopping by.
Peace and love,
There’s something about bright highly contrasting colours that I find attractive. During the last SEWDOWNDEWSBURY I bought 1 meter of such psychedelic swirling colours at Fabworks. Its not the best quality jersey – the pattern is printed – but it is not the worst either. It washed well and kept its brightness well for the quality of jersey it is. That is to say, it lost about 20% of the colour.
The pattern was one of my #burdachallenge2018 planned makes for April 2018. Its style number 128, here is the line drawing:
I think this particular issue of Burda has a lot of great kids patterns and I will be making more from it.
I traced the 110cm. They are 104cm currently, so they can grow into these. The pattern is a super fast sew. For the neckline, I just turned under and sewed with zigzag stitches. The contrast yoke is a scrap fabric that I picked up at a swap.
The fit is just as I have come to expect from Burda – spot on for them. Up next I’d like to make these in a better quality jersey like maybe AGF.
They love the dresses and they have been worn A LOT since I sewed them up:-).
Thanks for stopping by! And until next time, Happy Sewing!
Peace and love,
