PINK DIY JUMPSUIT – MC’CALLS 7910

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!

McCall's 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.

PINK DIY JUMPSUIT

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.

PINK DIY JUMPSUIT

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.

    You’re so classy and elegant. You look great in everything. Would love to wear this, but I am a lot more round. Not sure how this would look on me. I want the hat too. Beautiful, Anita!

  2. Lisa

    You are stunning in that jumpsuit!!!

  3. Susan Evans

    Ms. Anita,
    You look stunning (like always)! I love this jumpsuit on you. Can you give any helpful hints on how you made the straps turn out so perfectly? The straps are so thin, and the whole ensemble looks high end RTW not “homemade” like my version.
    Thank you!
    Susan

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Susan! Thank you so much for your compliments. The straps are just a zigzag stitch. The turning is where it gets cumbersome. I take my time and use safety pin, then press before attaching to shoulder.

  4. DIANA GREEN

    Oh Anita,
    This jumpsuit looks great on you. I am generally weary of the style simply because of my body type. I carry my weight from the waist up so will need some balance from the waist down. Any ideas?

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Diana. Hmmm… Maybe a fuller wide leg pant with more volume will help?

  5. Isa H

    I love this jumpsuit. It looks amazing and so comfortable.

    1. Anita Morris

      Thank you Isa! It is very comfortable.

  6. Joan

    Hi Anita,
    Just cut paper pattern pieces for bodice 1 with wide leg bottom. I was hoping you would do another sew along with that view.
    Have not made a garment in years. Fingers crossed.

    1. Anita Morris

      Yaaay, Joan! I will not be doing a sew along with bodice 1 because I don’t wear the plunging necklines. However, I will be doing a sew-along with either bodice 2 or 3. I’ll be talking about it in tomorrow’s blog post. So stay tuned.

  7. Patsy

    Stunning love them both ways…I am a jumpsuit gal just have a bigger behind and a lil pouch belly so sometimes it can be a bit difficult to get the fit right. This pattern is lovely used it once the 1 shoulder & wide leg pants and on my cutting table I have the deep v and straight leg pants in hello yellow fabric

    1. Anita Morris

      Oooohhh, Patsy! I wanna see! I wanna see! If you share when you’re done, tag me so I can see you’re jumpsuit.

  8. Evelyn Haye-Primus

    Thanks for sharing!! I haven’t sold much in years but I think this is one I would love to try. I do love jumpsuits even though I am your own a couple! You look great in yours, and the color is lovely

  9. LaToria

    I LOVE both of them. Since my bilateral knee replacement, I’m more into comfort these days, therefore I’ll pick the dress down version. BUT l LOVE both of them.

    1. Evelyn Haye-Primus

      Thanks for sharing!! I haven’t sewn much in years but I think this is one I would love to try. I do love jumpsuits even though I only own a couple! You look great in yours, and the color is lovely! Sorry for the typos in first post! Lol

  10. Carolyn

    Anita – you’re gorgeous in this whether it’s dressed up or dressed down!

  11. Brenda

    Hmmmmm. I love both versions. But paired with that hat….my, my, my!!!!!
    I love the idea of styling it before you sew, to keep the excitement & momentum going and see how it works in the end. I”m going to try that.
    Nice hook you set for us for the red and black version. Can’t wait!
    Thank you Anita. <3

    1. Anita Morris

      Thank you so much, Brenda! I’m excited to show the red/black version.

  12. Carmen cruz

    Hi Anita ,
    Well let me start by saying they look amazing on you either way. I am both teams haha. I have 3 jumpsuits and to all three I had to .alter the crotch part. I love jumpsuits but for me they have to hug me just right on the waist and not sag so much on crotch. I am still in the learning phase of sewing but I will most certainly attempt these. Would you consider a tutorial? thank you and GB

    1. Anita Morris

      Hey Carmen! I hear you on that crotch issue. Yes, I’m thinking about a sew-along on this version.

  13. Dawn

    I love the jumpsuit! I like it both ways but since I love heels I like it dressed up the best. I have this pattern. I’m going to have to get to work and make one for myself.

    1. Anita Morris

      Awesome Dawn! Have fun sewing your jumpsuit!

  14. Gwen Cartmell

    It’s hard to choose. Dressed up or down looks fabulous on you!

  15. Katherine

    Jumpsuits are beautiful!

  16. Tawanna

    Really Anita. You want me to choose which one I like best. I love the both. Wearing it for different occasions. Dressing up and down? Win! Win! Yohcfid it again

    1. Anita Morris

      I know Tawanna! Hahaha!!! It works either way, based on the occasion.

  17. Gwendolyn Styles

      Thanks for sharing I’ll be on your blog all day now 🙂

  23. kietta

    So beautiful. You have encouraged me to try this. I love your views of dressed down as well as dressed up. Thank you for sharing

    1. Anita Morris

      Awesome Kietta! Have fun making your jumpsuit.

  24. Pamela

    I love both looks- I am a jumpsuit girl!!
    Anita I am a newbie to sewing is this a beginner friendly sew and what fabric types ?

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Pamela! Yes, this one is beginner friendly. Anyone who has basic sewing knowledge should be able to complete tis one.

  25. Ginger Wells

    Dressed up or down they are both amazing looks. Girl you rock this jumpsuit, I think I’m going to give it a try.

    1. Anita Morris

      Thank you Ginger! Yes, give it a try.

  26. Latonya

    I love this pink jumper. It looks so nice with the hat and heels or the pink sneakers. I think I’ll be trying this pattern out.

    1. Anita Morris

      Thanks Latonya! Have fun making your jumpsuit.

  27. Tashiea

    And another beautiful piece.! I like both, but if I have to pice one it would be the casual. I never wore a jumpsuit before because I’m a little fluffy..? i just started back on my weightloss journey and I promised myself that when I reach my weight goal i will tackle the paper pattern and make me something. Thank you for being a great motivator?

    1. Anita Morris

      Awesome Tashiea! I wish you the absolute best in reaching your goals.

  28. Linda

    I prefer the dress down version. I would likely wear that one as a casual outfit about town. I would choose a fabric that would not be more casual.

  29. Mimi Routh

    Wow! I love the dressy version best. I love how you know who gave you all your pretty things. And for myself, I think I just might do the surplice version with a very thin [European style almost underwear pure cotton pointelle] knit tank or undershirt underneath. This look calls for a pretty neckline finish — have to run some test swatches, or at least put a bit of lace. There’s a length of soft acrylic jersey way back in my stash, teal color. Nice for around home. Thank you, Anita, for offering so much inspiration!

    1. Hege

      I love the dressed up version, that hat is just amazing …..

    2. Anita Morris

      Oh my goodness, Mimi! Your ideas sound so fun. I love the idea of lace underneath. Hmmm… I’ll think about that as an option too. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Pat Zeko

    Anita,
    You are just so beautiful and stylish to the hilt. I love jumpsuits and you make every detail stand out amazingly. I love your Beautiful accessories too.

  31. Marian

    Hello Anita. The jumpsuit is amazingly beautiful on you and the fit is spot on. I think both versions are stunning. However, because it’s summer I think the dress down look would be fun to wear. Thanks for sharing and God bless you.

    1. Anita Morris

      Thank you Marian! Yes, I plan to get a lot of wear from this jumpsuit in the dressed down version.

  32. Yolanda

    Mrs Anita that jumpsuit is the BOSS! You look great in it, plan to make one for myself!

    1. Anita Morris

      Thank you Yolanda! Have fun making your jumpsuit!

  33. Sandra Campbell

    Love this pattern. Might try it out. My issue is the bathroom, also. Contrarily, I love jumpsuits.

    1. Anita Morris

      Give it a try Sandra! You’ll be just fine.

  34. cat

    OMG!!! You are GORGEOUS in this jumpsuit! And the hat is FABULOUS!! I was going to ask if you had lined it, because the fit and the drape is just perfect and no ….ahem unwanted lines….. showing though haha.

    I’m not on Team Jumpsuit for both of the issues you mentioned, but more power to you and everyone who is able to wear one.

    I hate to be a pest, Anita but I’m really looking forward to a tutorial on lining a garment like this. I wish i could line some of my knits, i think they would look and drape better, but i don’t know how to start.

    1. Anita Morris

      Hey Cat! Thank you so much! Yeeesss, no “unwanted lines”! Proper undergarments are a must.

      Yes, I plan to do a tutorial on lining knits in the future.

  35. Theresa Chesterfield

    I love love love it all! I tried the one shoulder version. Disaster. Lol

  36. Tori W

    Love both looks!

  37. Camille

    Anita, I love both looks. I really like the dresses down version as I prefer to be casual when I’m not working.

  38. Yolanda

    Anita I love the dressy and casual style. The color you chose is everything and not to mention you look fabulous !!

    Blessings to you!!

  39. Gayle

    You’re a knockout in the hat but it looks stunning either way.

  40. Doris Mays

    Anita, I loveeeee this pink jumpsuit and that white. Oooh my goodness. Gorgeous! I knew I was making the white one you made, but girlfriend, I’m going through my pieces to find the perfect match for this. Thank you darling. You are Awesome!
