I'm back with another D.I.Y. but this time I have created my own pattern. It's a jumpsuit, with a comfortable fit for summer. I've been emphasizing dressing comfortable lately. So when I sketched out this idea, I knew what I wanted to create and even the type of material that I would use.
For me, after drawing out the pattern pieces that I would use and getting the size and fit just right, it was pretty easy to sew together. The fabric that I decided to use is light-weight, and I knew that I would have to double up the material in certain areas. I doubled up the fabric on the halter pieces of the top and partially lined the bottom pants of the jumpsuit by cutting the material into shorts.
JUMPSUIT PATTERN PIECES CREATED
Front Right and Front Left Halter Top (cut 2x each for thinner fabric)
One Back Halter Top (cut 2x)
Front/Back Right and Front/Back Left Pants (cut each front/back 1x)
Front/Back Right and Front/Back Left Shorts Lining (cut each front/back 1x)
Front/Back Pockets (cut 4x each
Finally, getting an opportunity to wear this jumpsuit on a summer day. I could picture myself giving off simplicity but with a 70's flair. The vision of the overall look came together with the hair and jewelry.
