Vogue 9116 – Wide-Leg Halter Jumpsuit

Hello everyone!  I’ve been working, non-stop, on several different things since we moved.  I’m slowly unpacking and putting the house together.  I’ve had two weeks of lunch dates with the young ladies I’ve mentored over the years, and my son, before they all started college.  Through all of this, I’ve continued to sew a few things for upcoming events.  I’m tired, y’all!  I need a break!  My husband and I planned a getaway for after the move so we could unwind, and that time is coming.  I’m so ready to just relax.  I had planned on making about seven outfits for the trip, but I just couldn’t get it done.  So, I’ve made two halter pieces and the rest of my trip wardrobe will come straight from my closet.  Today, I’m sharing the halter jumper, and next week I’ll share the halter dress.  For someone who’s not a big halter fan, I’ve sewn quite a few of them this summer.  Hehehe!!!

Vogue 9116 – Wide-Leg Halter Jumpsuit

I’m in love with this 70’s style jumper.  What drew my attention to the pattern is the very wide legs.  It’s a very comfortable jumpsuit, and I think I’d like another one, but with a full, fitted bodice (no halter).  Hmmm… I’ll have to see what I can come up with to create that look.  A franken pattern project may be in my near future

The fabric I used is an ITY knit from the Michael Levine Loft in Downtown Los Angeles.  For those of you who don’t know about the Loft, it’s a warehouse above the Home Fabrics Department at Michael Levine, where they sell all their remnants for $3.00/pound.  All the fabric is thrown into boxes that you have to dig through.  There’s everything from tiny scraps to yards of fabric pieces in the boxes.  You can buy the fabric as is, or cut the amount you want to purchase.  If you’re patient, you can really find some jewels in these boxes.  I am NOT the patient one when it comes to shopping in unorganized spaces.  However, the Loft is the one exception I make.  I get the majority of my sweater knit there and the cost makes it worth the dig.  Sometimes the fabric purchased from the Loft can be found on the ML website, but often times not.

This pattern is rated as “Very Easy,” and I agree.  There are only 5 pattern pieces to work with, and they can be cut out and sewn together in just one day.  This jumpsuit is very comfortable to wear, and can be dressed up or down.

    Hello Anita, thanks much for posting about this jumpsuit. I ❤️ how it looks on you. I’ve hesitated to make any umpsuits/pants with an extra wide legs because I think I’m too short for the look. To me all the fabric overwhelms me. I’m so glad I found your blog. Our style is similar. ??????

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Blondell! You’re very welcome! I’m glad you found the blog too. I have lots more to share, so stay tuned.

    Love this! Looks so comfy and you wear it so well. You look stunning in all of your creations! I am so glad and thankful I stumbled upon your blog. I am so appreciative for all the informative teachings and insight you offer. I wish you were closer. I live in NY. I was discussing you with my hubby a few weeks ago and was so excited and giving him a full description. He asked me ” where and what store did I meet you”? I laughed and said oh she is my new bestie online. You can’t imagine the look I got ? I said she lives in California ? Maybe one day we will meet.
    I have been sewing off and on for several years. I dabble in several other crafty things. Looking at your creations has remotivated me to jump back into sewing. I just wish there were more hours in the day. ?
    I do have a request for you tutorials if you could address fitting and petite alterations and sway back adjustments if possible.
    Stay Blessed and Beautiful!
    Thanks again

      Heeeeyyyy Dina! Girl, you just put a big smile on my face. You had me cracking up over your conversation with your husband. LOL! There’s just something about that sew sister connection that can’t be described. I sure hope we get to meet one day too.

      Welcome back to sewing. Stay tuned, as more tutorials are coming soon.

    Anita…is is beautiful…I love Micheal Levine loft:) Can I ask what size you cut?? Also, did you have problems with gabbing a the V neck section of the crossover?? If so, how you deal with it??

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Lora! I cut a small. There were no finished measurements on the pattern pieces so I just took a chance. The neckline was too low for my comfort, so I tacked it with a hand needle and thread to keep it closed.
