Sunny Day to All,
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my super easy velvet jumpsuit. This past Saturday was a full afternoon / evening planned with my ladies. We were celebrating one of my sister's birthday. The temperature was unpredictable. It was warm during the morning but according to the weather channel, it was supposed to be cold at night. The Velvet fabric was perfect for the occasion. Jumpsuits are in right now so guys, this blog is about to be Jumpsuit overload because a sister love herself some jumpsuits. I apologize in advance. I used Simplicity 8386 for the top and self drafted the bottom using a self drafted legging pattern that I made last year. I purchased this beautiful Hunter green velvet fabric in LA in a small store in the Fashion district last year. I paired this beautiful jumpsuit with some gold jewelry and my BCBG yellow Sandals (old). I almost forgot, I am into pins these past couple of months so I finished the look with a gold floral pin. I really liked the final look. Enjoy these few pics and don't forget to say Hi.
About the Pattern
Simplicity 8386 is actually a top. I used view C to make the top of my jumpsuit. I added 3 inches to the length so I could make the gathers on the side. A sister gained some weight. Ya'll already know that gathers around the waist help hide the mid section a little bit. HA! I keep it real all the time. I cut size 12 and it was perfect. At first I planned on adding a zipper in the back. So I did not cut the back on the fold. I actually added 1 inch for the seam. But I decided to omit the zipper since it was so much stretch into the fabric. I wanted the top to be fitted but wanted the bottom to be nice and comfortable. I used my self-drafted legging pattern for the bottom part however, I added some inches so it would not be too tight. Please be on the look out because I will make plenty of jumpsuits using different "top" patterns. Happy sewing to you and thanks for stopping by.
