In this case, I have been trying out some new shapes. Shapes I wouldn't normally gravitate towards, were it not for this website, "Who What Where" giving me fantastic ideas for every occasion and taste. This jumpsuit can even transfer into a little "Hammer Time" action.
That pattern is McCall's 7099 . Really easy to sew together with the following changes:
- Raised armhole by 1/2"
- took 3/4" off shoulder length
- Added scoop pockets instead of the inseam pockets in the pattern
- Topstitched the channel for the elastic instead of just having it hang loose inside.
- No FBA, cut a size 14
- Took out a 1/2" wedge at the front surplice neckline so it wouldn't gap
The bodice is extremely loose fitting...I even took out some fullness in the back so I wouldn't look like a quarterback. This does make it a little more challenging to take on and off, but its better than it just hanging on me like a clothes line.
Shoutout to my daughter for styling my outfit. Red shoes, I feel so Dorothy! Y'all know I would have never, ever!! considered red shoes with this outfit. So very cool. All I need is a full-time stylist and I will be more diva-lishious than I already am, for sure.
On another note: I hope you enjoy the new update and look of my online sewing space we call a blog....got a really nice lady off of the online store "Etsy" to pull it together for me. Her name is Chelsea with Bellaluluink. Don't worry this is non-sponsored, I just really liked working with her. She made easy pudding of this mess of a blog I had going. Like I said before...I SEW, that is all. I do know my strengths.Dena Jackson Studio, a really talented lady and extremely professional.
As well as with my skills and other areas in life, I try to improve and grow in knowledge and understanding. Yet there are times I respect the craft and delegate more difficult task to someone more able than myself. I have sought after professionals who's skill sets far outshine my own. Anytime you have something or any services you like sharing on your blog, I am always grateful for the insight. Online reviews are very helpful. So, do tell about any services you have been keen to delegating to the more inclined mind.
