All White Jazz Night

Hello everyone! On the last day of my birthday week (August 12th), my husband and I attended a lovely event at the home of our dear friends Eric & Julie.  This was the best day of the entire week because it was our 21st Wedding Anniversary, and we were thrilled to spend it with them.  My husband surprised me for my birthday with such an amazing two days away at a beautiful Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, California.  We took advantage of the gorgeous scenery and did a photo shoot of my jumpsuit there.  Then on Friday, we were fully relaxed and ready to enjoy an evening with the smooth sounds of “Mindless Groove,” the jazz band who was also the opening act at the Long Beach Jazz Festival the following Saturday; dinner, and great fellowship with long-time friends.

The Hilltop Jazz Night is an annual event and this year the theme was “All White Night.”  Eric & Julie are the most amazing hostesses.  Their hospitality is top notch and we love them so much!  As we expected, the night was one to be remembered, and a perfect way to spend our anniversary.  I’ve posted a few photos of the event below.  After such an amazing week, I’m still floating on a cloud.  Hehehe!!!

White Jumpsuit – What I Wore

To prepare for the event, of course I had to make something to wear.  I actually didn’t have anything in my closet that would fit the occasion, so I went through my pattern stash and pulled out this sleeveless, wide-leg jumpsuit, knowing it would be amazing with the right fabric.  So, while I was picking out fabric for my birthday dress last week, I ran across this white printed knit at Michael Levine’s in Los Angeles.  I wasn’t able to find the exact print on their website, so I’ve linked to a similar one.  It’s just thick enough for a jumpsuit, and the quilt-like texture gives it a bit of character.  This piece is fully lined.  I wanted to line it with a solid white knit, and I thought I had enough in my fabric stash already, so I didn’t purchase any extra.  When it came time to cut the pattern, I quickly realized that I did NOT have enough to line it in white, so I used what I had on hand, a nude color, and it worked out just fine.  Actually, I think I like it better than I would have the white.

This Tom & Linda Platt Vogue pattern is rated “easy” by the company, however, I would not recommend it for a new beginner.  With experience, it really is an easy pattern.  It only consists of four pieces, however, installing a full lining with a zipper should be attempted only after you’ve gained some experience.  When learning to apply linings to garments, I recommend starting with simple projects, like skirts, then progress to partially lined garments, such as dress bodices.  Get lots of practice with those garments first, then you should be ready to tackle fully lined suits, jumpsuits, jackets & coats, etc.

Create the Look

  26. Cleopatra

    Hey Anita! You look awesome! I planned on making this a few weeks ago. I think I am going to make this for my anniversary. Did you have to adjust the inseam at all? The fit is amazing and you look just stunning!

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Cleopatra! Thank you so much! Yes, I did adjust the crotch. However, I will make this jumpsuit again and try it without the adjustment because it’s a little too tight. It looks great but a bit uncomfortable when sitting. I still like it, but just want to try it again.

  27. Sandy

    You’re a beautiful soul, Anita. Inside & out.

  28. Dara

    I am so happy everything turned out WONDERFUL for your birthday and anniversary! God bless you and hubby!

  29. Nina
