Yep! It’s another jumpsuit! Last week’s conversation here on the blog about jumpsuits was very interesting. Of the 50 comments that were shared (up until the date of this posting), 36 were Team Jumpsuit. The two most common complaints from those who don’t wear this type of garment are the bathroom issue, and body size/shape concerns. Thank you for joining me in the conversation.
For those of you who are Team Jumpsuit, and those who said you like seeing them on other people, here’s another look for you. It’s the same pattern and design with a different fabric. OMGosh! I like this one even better than the first. The fabric is a lightweight jersey-type. It’s another Michael Levine Loft purchase, so I don’t know the exact fabric content, but it feels like a jersey. The bodice of this pattern calls for a lining, but because my fabric is so lightweight, I had to line the pants also.
I’m so in love with this jumpsuit. I always style my makes before sewing them. It excites me during the process and I really look forward to how my vision will come to life at the end. I take the fabric into my closet and choose accessories beforehand. Honey, I was squealing and smiling like crazy when I pulled my pink hat and saw that it was a perfect match. Then, when I held the clutch purse to the fabric, I did a little shimmy. Hahaha!!!
When I put the jumpsuit on, and threw on that hat, giiiirrrlll (or brother), you would have thought I had hit the jackpot or something. Hahaha!!! All you could hear from my bathroom was, “Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooooohhhhhhh!!! What you say? What you say nooooowwww?!!!!” Hahahahaaa!!! That’s just how I act when I think I’m REALLY cute. My husband bought this hat for my 50th birthday a few years ago, so it is very special to me.
I went to my friend’s daughter’s bridal shower last weekend and knew I wanted to wear my pink jumpsuit, but I wanted to be super comfortable. I didn’t want to wear high heels, so I pulled my pink sneakers…another perfect match. Then I grabbed my pink tote bag that my husband gave me one year for Valentines Day. YES! I love how cute this jumpsuit looks even dressed down. I was totally comfortable at the shower, so it was a win!
PINK DIY JUMPSUIT – MC’CALLS 7910
Now let me tell you more about this pattern, because I have completed yet another jumpsuit with it, but a different version. It’s a Create It design, with mix & match pattern pieces. It comes with three different bodices and three different pants versions. Therefore, you can create nine, I said NINE, jumpsuits with this one pattern.
I made the first two jumpsuits with bodice #2 and pants #6. There are two straight leg pant versions, one with slits on both sides, and a tapered pant version. There’s a surplice bodice, a one shoulder bodice, and a halter bodice. Oh my goodness!!! The possibilities are endless with so many fabric choices on the market. I envision color blocking on this too.
I’m attending a 40th Birthday Party this weekend for my best friend’s nephew, and he requested that his guests wear red/black/gold. I had a beautiful black and red printed knit that I thought would look amazing with the one shoulder and straight pant version of this jumpsuit. While I wasn’t too thrilled with it at first, I made an accompanying piece to wear with it and they look amazing together. I can’t wait to show you next week.
For those of you who are team jumpsuit, I think this is a great pattern to add to your collection. Show off your designer knit fabrics and go to town. Create that magic. I can’t wait to see what you ladies do with this pattern.
So tell me, which do you prefer, dressed up or dressed down? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.
Thanks for stopping by!
