Description

The real scenario (I don’t make this stuff up):
Client sees jumpsuit in a magazine, text’s a pic (2nd photo) to me and asks, “can you make this…exactly?”
Well here it is. I had some blue ribbed fabric on hand that was a little too short for the pant length, so I added a black horizontal stripe to make up the diff, hence the twist.

Material Notes

Poly/rayon/ spandex jersey

    Looks way better on your client than the model.

      Thanks Ellen. That’s my client in the photo, but I’ll pass on the compliment.

    It’s great! I want to make something like this! It will be a nice idea for refashioning as well and I have some pants very tight!
