I finished sewing my first jumpsuit! Everyone get excited! Guys, I know I’ve been really happy after certain sewing projects, but nothing beats how I feel about this one. It fits me like a glove and I want to wear it everywhere!
The stretch sateen is a medium weight, and considering the size of the jumpsuit, it definitely has a bit of weight to it. I wanted to make it slightly fancy so I could dress it up or down. I think the added weight gives this effect. It also allows me to wear it in any season. Needless to say, I’m pretty happy with my fabric choice.
My favorite success: I used double-sided tape to sew my zipper. Um, I’ll be using that again! The thread got a little wonky, but best zipper I have done so far. Let’s just look at it for a moment.
Oh, and POCKETS!
I needed the boost from this project. I had been kind of down on my progress. This jumpsuit is a little ray of sunshine. I was able to not get so in my head and just have fun. When perfectionist Pamela comes out things don’t go so well. I’ll try to put her away for a while. Now, does anyone have a wedding I could attend? I think this jumpsuit would be perfect wedding attire. Anyone need a +1? I do have a friend date on Friday and I’m planning to strut my jumpsuit around Birmingham that afternoon. Look out Bham!
If you haven’t made a jumpsuit, do it! The Vogue 9075 was pretty easy and fun. Anyone else made a jumpsuit? I’d love to see your makes!
