Chocolate brown jumpsuit

Hi:) This looks like an overall but it is seperate top and pants. I used tunic pattern 113 from burda issue 6/2009 (without the drapped pieces) for the top, which I made long enough and added a tunnel with elastic at the bottom: when it is worn the hem goes to the waist and the top has a soft bubble look. I finished the upper of the top with a doubled band. I also added a narrow strap which ties at the front connection point. For the pants I used as a pattern guide an old pair of rtw pants which I unstiched. I widened the pants downwards and finished them with a doubled band. It was a very easy and quick project. It is also very easy to wear, comfortable and makes me look slimmer. I have also made a shrug of the same fabric so the outfit can be worn in a more chilly weather as well, I just forgot to take photos of it:(
Thanks for looking!

    Awesome outfit!! After all the comments from the other sewing pals there isn’t much left to say. But It’s a nice outfit and it looks very comfortable and fresh for summer weather.

    I’m a big fan of brown too! It’s so flattering and not as harsh as black. I love the simplicity of this outfit. It would work for night or day just by changing accessories. It looks so lovely on you. I wouldn’t have said you need to shave a few pounds but if it makes you feel good then this outfit is a winner. :)

      Oh, thank you you are always so kind:) I’m glad you like brown, I’m a brown maniac though it’s not a very popular color. I agree 100% with you that it is a perfect alternative to black:)

      Yes. The lace on your neck makes it smart and good for evening event: it looks quite noble in this jersey. But if to wear for everyday, maybe something bright would be good.

      It’s more an everyday outfit ( this was my plan when I made it) and the brown goes well with colorful accessories. I wanted to keep it simple:)

    This is so much smarter and practical than a jumpsuit ….the length of the pants is fresh and stylish and I like the style of them very much. This will be one of my favorites!!!!!!

    Hi Liliv, really nice and inventive how you created this! The color is beautiful too and suits you very well. It is a very different look as I mostly see you in dresses:-)

      Thanks! I made it this way because jumpsuits are not very functional for me:)
