    Aw Mary you are inspirational! I really love the floral one especially. I never dared to do a full length printed suit…always thought they looked a bit silly on someone my age. You’re making me do a rethink! Yours looks fun and really quite gorgeous…I might even try doing one!

      thank you, i might be the oldest swinger in town but i’m a trendy one hahaha.i made my mum a long sleeved one (shes 71 and incredible) she tried it on and we all laughed so much she won’t wear it. i’ll probably split it into two pieces for her. you should try this?? i never thought i’d like anything like this as i’m a dress girl but i surprised myself. i just need some nice weather a tan and i’ll be wearing them x

    Hi Mary, I am not a fan of jumpsuits, but on you it looks very sexy (you make it sexy). I get the feeling you lost a lot of weight. Take care. Keep on SS (Sewing and Smiling) Cecilia

      thanks lol. i really was freezing and it was snowing like mad. my sis picked me up ten minutes after i took them to go to the cinema she said we’re mad going out in this? i said mad!! if you’d of come early youd of caught me in the garden in a sleeveless jumpsuit hahaha x

    , i never thought i’d wear one again having worn them in the 80’s but i do really like them.i think dressing them up with a leather belt heels etc will work and did i mention they’ve pockets which i love lol i’ve just noticed i spelt arctic wrong in the pic! ah well i’n not changing it in case i lose it again lol. my sister said she knows excatly my style when she sees something so i thought i’d challenge myself and go out of my comfort zone. i think this jumpsuit patterns first class and i highly recomnend it. i"n toying with the idea of splitting the pattern into a too and bottom by adding bands? i actually loved the wrap top section on its own when i tried it on and did i mention the trousers have fab pockets lol my new love is pockets x

    hi mary, this is a very daring outfit and I like it! it seems also very comfy and you look very nice in it, I can understand why you love it! jumpsuit is also not my thing, but perhaps I should try it one day :)
