Pull On Stretch-Lace Jumpsuit

Strapless Jumpsuit – Burdastyle 04/2012 #110A

I found a pile of this stretch lace in a thrift store for a few bux, and I had enough to make a slightly sheer long strapless jumpsuit. The lace has medium stretch but it had enough stability to sew with as it didn’t get wavy edges, yet it was also difficult to sew straight and tidy stitches without the use of a proper stretch stitch or over-locker. I elected to use the tricot stitch on my machine rather than zigzag. Someone told me it has vibes of a Florida retirement village, and I said haha I’m sure it would be awesome in one. I traced this pattern 4 years ago only in this size, which is slightly roomy for the stretch lace I think. I omitted the pockets as I ran out of material (again, lol). Location: Parnell

    I did this shoot the other day whilst house/cat sitting my uncle’s (& aunties’, RIP) house in their overgrown backyard jungle garden before he sells. I kinda resemble a flamingo lol. The jumpsuit feels very roomy and large, unless I’ve lost weight…
