Halter Jumpsuit – Burdastyle 06/2015 #119B

I found a pile of this very stretchy material in a thrift store for only 3 bux, and I thought that’s ample enough to make a jumpsuit. Only the facings I had to make from other thrift store jersey scraps. Yet the stretch was difficult to control and without a serger my sewing machine ran into many problems. I simply liked the print on the jersey too much lol. It gave me difficulty when trying to match up the zig zag print as it moved around so much; the back sides don’t match up lol but I couldn’t keep track of the pattern. However its comfy and fits like a glove, considering I didn’t use woven fabric. I still inserted the zipper, a shorter vintage not-so-invisible zip, which I attached from the top of the left hand pocket upwards. The zip works quite well and I can slip into it comfortably. Of course I’m not tall like the pattern is, so I hemmed the legs up a fair bit. I like the waist on this pattern, it camouflages my problem area lol. Location: Parnell Gardens
