Made by a Fabricista: Let Me Introduce You To The "Keira" DIY Jumpsuit [Nina Ramel Patterns]

[This DIY Jumpsuit was made for and modeled by my daughter Mori]

Hello ladies and gents! It was feeling like spring here in Pennsylvania this past week. So this DIY Jumpsuit fit the bill for this month's post. Let me introduce you to the Keira Jumpsuit a new pattern by Shari from My Daily Threadz  with her indie pattern label Nina Ramel Patterns. This is my second version of the pattern and you can see my original version  made with sweatshirt fleece HERE!  This pattern does call for a knit fabric but I don't really like to follow all the rules when sewing. I knew from my first time around with the pattern I could use a woven fabric with a stretch. I hacked this version a little and used this sateen stretch that worked well. [There was a little left when I created this post but it was on sale] 

I worked out a few kinks with the first go round which mainly was an issue using the thick fleece fabric. This time I did not add the gathered waistband, I added an exposed zipper in the back and I added a wide cuff to the pant legs. 



You can also see that my neckline is showing a little more Va-Va-Va-Voom if you know what I'm talking about! But Mori's a youngin' who can wear this daring neckline, it's age appropriate for Mori but the version on the cover of the pattern is for the more mature woman.

 

 




     

   


Well that's all for this month folks!
