[This outfit was made for and modeled by my daughter Mori]
This fabric is fabulous! When I saw this I could not put it in my cart fast enough. This black & white rose print is the star of the show! This is one fabric that needs a simple design so that it doesn't fight with the print. I knew I wanted to make a jumpsuit with this fabric and I wanted a simple sleeveless jumpsuit with a matching belt.
I made a romper last year by hacking these patterns so this is what I used for this jumpsuit. I used the top of view C from the dress and I used the base of the shorts for my bottom. I would have just used a jumpsuit pattern in my stash but I knew I had worked out fit issues already with these patterns and all I had to do was add the pant legs to the short pattern.
I added a collar and a matching belt to give this jumpsuit a little class. Unfortunately they disappears when it's all put together. You have to see this beauty up close and personal to really appreciate it. So here are some close-up shots of the collar and belt.
We took a walk to a local flower shops on Keswick Ave in Glenside PA called Penny's for our backdrop. I love this painted window and their mural on the building...and the flowers. Thanks Penny's!
Make sure you stop to smell the roses!
Until next time.
