Made by a Fabricista: One More Summer Jumpsuit


I participated in the launch of the Anitra Jumpsuit by Style Sew Me Patterns and I love this jumpsuit! It has all the drama for a night out on the town and it's such a easy garment to make. My daughter Mori needed a causal-dressy outfit for a wedding and this is what happened. I opted for a solid print this time around and I say this time because this was the third use of this pattern. Eryn the owner of Style Sew Me Patterns outdid herself with this one. The instructions are super easy and she even has a sew-a-long to walk you through the construction.

                                                                     

The first time I used a gold coated knit which draped so lovely for this jumpsuit [here]. The second time around I used a  BOLD stripe ITY print [here]. The second jumpsuit was for my sister. Even though we dressed up all three of the jumpsuits with heels, you can easily put on a cute pair of sneakers, hike that purse up on your shoulders and be on your way!

Now I used this Kelly Green ITY knit that I bought a some time ago to make an off the shoulder top but that never happened. Mori had the shoes so it came in super handy for this jumpsuit and she didn't have to buy new shoes to wear with it. I put together a line of green solid fabrics that I think would make a nice jumpsuit and I threw a print in the mix as well. The choice of fabrics are endless and you can make this jumpsuit for just a few dollars!

Apple Green     
Army Green         

Check out the video above to see just how easy it is to construct. 
I did a little hacking on this version because Mori wanted thin straps instead of the t-shirt top. 
It was easy as 1-2-3 as shown  below.



 



 



   

Let the shenanigans begin.....
Uummm I don't think there's enough room in there. 

  This is her I'm every woman pose!                 
I hope you enjoyed this jumpsuit as much as I have.
I'll be coming back in October with my next post, 
in the mean time make sure you visit my blog to stay in touch.

Do you see cute clothes in stores or online and think to yourself "I can make that!"? It happens to me often! I was a pretty big clothing shopper before I began sewing. And though I still buy clothes when I find a great deal, I usually end trying to recreate the outfit instead of buying. That is what happened with this jumpsuit. This black and white jumpsuit leaped out to me when I was scrolling through the gram. If you know me I love black and white, stripes and jumpsuits, so it's no surprise this was love at first sight.When I saw this Be Stripe Back Jumpsuit by Kiomios I immediately thought of McCalls 8047 as the overall shape is similar. I sewed the bottoms straight from the pattern. Yes, I could've added slant pockets like the inspiration photo, but I didn't want to add any bulk. I did however alter the bodice to achieve the looser fit of the RTW outfit. I made the following changes:added 1" at the center foldadded 2" to the hemadded 1.5" to t…

Made by a Fabricista: Inspired by Athleisure

Hey all!  I hope you are all healthy, happy, and sewing!  With this craziness of CoVID, I figured at some point this school year, I will be quarantined due to exposure to the virus.  To get through that time, I decided to make something unbelievably comfortable and also cute.  Right?  Fabric Mart usually has athletic fabric and when I am in the mood to sew it up, I snatch it up!  I've never, ever been disappointed in this fabric selection.  Here is a link so you can explore.  Activewear selectionThis white and pink I used are active wear, not swimwear.  Using swimwear for clothing might drape a little differently, so try it out prior to your full commitment.  In other words, purchase a bit extra and make a muslin.  It helps!  Let's start with the white top.  It is a very simple design, and I've used this style/pattern numerous times and I knew it would fit.  Because the fabric is so stretchy I used SewkeysE tape at the shoulders, necklines, and hemlines.  My serger made q…
