Description

I’ve been eye-ing this pattern since it came out a few years back. I’m short (5’ 3"), so I ended up shortening the length quite a bit, taking out about an inch from the strap length, and inch from the torso, and an inch from the hip area, not to mention roughly 3" from the hem. I also decided against doing the drawstring, but now that I see the finished product, I may add it back in retroactively.

I decided to patch the straps to add some interest. I used a Kate Spain “Bungalow” charm pack, which patched up really quickly and nicely. Not gonna lie, the instructions for the whole neckline/strap area confused me, so I instead went with the following: 1) I made a facing for the center front area for a nice clean finish, 2) I changed the back strap seams to regular strap edges, and added a few “x” embroidery stitches to hold the straps in place (see detail). All in all, very happy with this jumpsuit! I’ll probably live in it for the rest of the summer!
