Magenta Jumpsuit

Added Dec 18, 2014

Houston , Texas,...






There were no specific patterns in my inventory to create the look I wanted for a jumpsuit. With this project there were several alterations and visions to achieve the finished look:

The pants were a combination of 2 patterns: I superimposed the top of a draped skirt pattern on a basic pant pattern block . The pants were tapered in by 2 inches for a slimmer leg.

The top half of jumpsuit was used with Vogue 8646. I added 2 pleats on shoulders and omitted back darts. The separate facing around the front of bodice was omitted and I added a knit interfacing and used a self facing instead. Bishop sleeves were drafted using one of the many pattern making (flat and draped) books in my studio. I started with a basic sleeve pattern, cut and slash the sleeves, increased the bottom length by an 1". Instead of an elastic closing on the sleeve, I used a 4" band.

      Thanks. I think the shoes have about 4 different colors. Was going to select a silver pump, glad I was talked into wearing the multi-colored ones.

      Hi Chris!!! you’re another amazing seamstress. Thanks for the compliments on the color and combining of patterns!! It’s so much fun and freedom with sewing (until you have to rip out a few seams). lol.
