Sewn it after the 10/2010 Silk Jumpsuit #103 pattern. I had to take in several centimeters till I got this final version of the overall. I wanted something more straight or skinny legged than the original wide leg jumpsuit. It was very difficult I must say as I am not an experienced seamstress but I’m happy with the outcome. Perfect for fixing the car in style ;)
I also dropped the front pockets although I do regret it now and the belt loops as I was after a rather minimalistic look, unfortunately with my curves it is a bit of a mess as the upper part is too baggy but I’ll leave it like this for now. I will make another one with different pattern as I’m still not satisfied.
The images are bad as they were taken by BF…he captures me at my worst :)
