World Connection Jumpsuit: Celebrating International Women's...

To celebrate International Women’s Day I made this jumpsuit the night before and wore it out on the day. The shape of the black looks like different countries that are linked by the white around the world. What a better way to represent the day but with this fabulous print.

International Women’s Day should be celebrated by all the women who have achieved greatness in their lives. I did just that and was feeling so happy :-).

The jumpsuit is knee length and has an opening at the back that shaped like a triangle when enclosed, hip pockets with flap attached with a button. The top is self lined with the same fabric.

This is a poem by Maya Angelou that all women should embrace

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

    Wow! I love your jumpsuit! Every detail is wonderful and you are right, it is perfect for International Woman’s Day. That cut out back is so cool! I absolutely love anything with pockets(they should be in everything!) and you made them so nice with the flap and button. That print is awesome too. You look wonderful! You’ve out done yourself again. ~Tillie Ps, perfect poem
