Jumpsuit (of sorts)

I made a new outfit for my work Christmas function and for family get together on Christmas day.  I like the look of the jumpsuit but really wouldn't get a lot of wear out of one.  So I made separates and just pretended.  I tucked the front of the top in and left the back loose to defect the backside view :)

The pants are Stylearc's Lola's pants.  Elastic waist and elastic at the back hem.  I made them up based on my hip measurement without any alterations.  I figured with lose fitting elastic waist pants, can't have too much go wrong?  The fabric is a silk (crepe I think) I bought a few years back in China.

 I didn't add the pockets - no time for that!

The top is another version of the free Marfy 1913.  I constructed it the same as my last post except no hand sewing - I was on a mission..  No time for the elastic hem either!  Luckily the outfit turned out well and I got a lot of compliments.

I've made a few things this year and the next post will be on another Stylearc I made for my daughter's 21st.

Gorgeous outfit and so much easier to wear than the the whole "suit".

Great looking jumpsuit which you can have a lot of fun with as separates.

Gorgeous!! Being separates will pay off in versatility! Well done!

Happy New Year, Vicki!!!

I think the faux jumpsuit is a great concept. Not only do you get more versatility from the outfit but it may survive beyond the current jumpsuit fad.

Such a great sewing patterns ideas! Very handy to know this and makes so much sense when you think about it.
