I made up this pattern in my Advanced Pattern making class that I have been taking at Portland Fashion Institute as a part of my first collection for my label Love, Stephanie.
I got about 4 yards of a lovely silk twill-like material that had just the right amount of drape to it without being sheer or flimsy.
I love how easy and free-flowing this jumpsuit looks and feels:
It was a fairly easy design to create. I made a cross bodice top with a back zipper opening, drafted a long sleeve with a wider sleeve hem, made a wide leg palazzo pant, and sewed them together at the waist and added elastic. I then whipped up a simple sash and tied it loosely at the waist Boom! Done!
I have been admiring the whole jumpsuit trend and have been saving up inspiration photos on Pinterest:
Love it! I can now take what I have made and create different versions of it; narrower leg, sleeveless, halter top, all kinds of fun and fashionable looks. Sew exciting!!
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more custom designs from me!
