Description

I’ve always been skeptical towards jumpsuits, I still think it’s tricky to make them flatter one’s shape. But I really liked this pattern and wanted to give it a try.
The fabric is an impulse buy, I saw it on an internet shop and really liked it! Had no idea what I wanted to do with it, so I just randomly bought 2m. This happened way before the issue of Burda came out.
But when it did, the idea came quick. I make a summery beachy culottes length jumpsuit, then I can use it during my trip to the Philippines :) This idea fit barely into the 2 meters I had :)
And since I’m not a fan of showing my bra or going without one, I also made a red tube top to wear under it. (I found out after wearing it that it slides down a lot, so it’ll get spaghetti straps in the near future and become officially a tank top).
It’s not an outfit I can use often as I think it looks very beach vacation, but at least now I’m a bit less skeptical to jumpsuits…they can look good :)
P.S. Photos taken on the White beach of Boracay island, The Philippines :)

    That’s a lovely jumpsuit and fabric choice! It is perfect to wear for vacation and I like the culottes length :) Hope you had a great time in Boracay.

      Thanks Elpida :) You made one! That’s nice to hear, I told you adjusting this would be easy ;) I lengthened the bodice only to regular length, but I should’ve done the pants part too to get some extra ease…well, what’s done is done…looking forward to seeing yours :)

    Great variation on the jumpsuit Maria love how you have made them into culottes, Ive just bought a vogue Culottes/jumpsuit pattern and after seeing what you’ve done I’m looking forward to making it.

    What a very nice jumpsuit. The idea of making it to cullotes length is brilliant. I should give it a try too in the future. It is lovely to see a Burda pattern worn in my homeland Philippines. Enjoy your vacation and enjoy Boracay!

      Thank you so much Joanne :) Looking forward to seeing yours! This is actually one of 3 Burda patterns that were worn in the Philippines :) The other two are the yellow top and dress I posted earlier. And I loved The Philippines! If it wasn’t that far away from Europe, I’d be vacationing there a lot more often!

    Oh, I’ve looked at this model, I like it, but I was afraid to sew it. I already had one dress with an open back, which I’ve made, inspired by the beautiful pictures from Burda, and … never dared to wear :) The idea of bandage is good and practical. Bright vacation is guaranteed with this jumpsuit! :)

      Thank you Luda! I know! Open back looks so nice in the pictures, and one gets inspired, then has to come up with additions to make it more everyday friendly :) And yes, the vacation was awesome :)
