This is by far my favorite garment I have made this year (I feel like I say that with almost every garment I have so far this year, haha) but THIS is my actual favorite!

I used our Halter Jumpsuit pattern and cut in a size 80. Since it was a tall sized pattern I took a good 1 3/4" inches out of the length to compensate, you can see here how I took out the length. This project was my latest mash up, and I really didn’t change the style of the jumpsuit to much, mainly just paneled the fabric to almost make it look like it was a two piece. I used a mix of printed and plain crepe with a bit of stretch in it. I also made the zipper to be at the back instead of the side seam and eliminated the side seam pockets (to reduce bulk in the hip area).

The only fit alteration I did to this pattern was reducing the length, and it fit like a glove! I am so happy with this pattern, and as soon as I tried on the jumpsuit I knew immediately that I needed to make another one (my friends also have all requested one).
