In honor of breast cancer month I decided to make a outfit :) .
Fortunately I have not lost anyone close due to cancer BUT it is still very important to me to honor those that have lost the fight to this terrible disease .
I try to wear something pink every Friday in the month of October to help bring Awareness so I decided I would add something to my wardrobe .
I decided on making this jumpsuit when I saw Vogue 1513 ( see below )
I fell in love with it because of the asymmetrical Draped Neck feature but I didn't really want to make a dress ! This dress featured a close fitted bodice so I decided on a pattern that I had recently used to make it into a jumper . It worked perfectly!!
The other pattern that I chose was McCall 7444
In order to make it work I used all the pieces of Vogue 1513 and just the Pants and midriff portions of McCall 7444. I found the "waistline" marking of each piece of Vogue 1513 and laid the midriff piece from McCall 7444 on top matching the waistline marking. I then marked just below were the midriff piece ended on the Vogue piece. I did every piece the same way and then cut . This allowed me to extend the bodice pieces to compensate for the midriff section of the pants that I would later connect from McCall 7444.
Once all the pieces were cut out I used both sets of instructions to construct the pieces separately.
I cut out the lining the same as the fabric pieces ( except for the drape piece ) and constructed them separately.
- I added two inches to the Pants
- I added pink binding under the drape to give it a subtle hint of color
- I added a half inch to the top of the pants to give me more room in the crotch area
The jumpsuit turned out fabulous and I was so glad that they fit together so easily !
I'm not a huge pink fan. Honestly October is just about the ONLY time I wear pink , so making a entirely pink outfit was NOT happening !! This seemed like a good compromise :)
By there being just a hint of pink it gives me the option of wearing this jumpsuit more often . WIN!
I really ....REALLY love this jumpsuit !!
I know the details of the construction might have been a little hard to understand but I'm thinking of doing a tutorial for this one . What do you guys think ?
If your interested leave me a message in the comments and Ill try to get that going for you guys !
I hope you all like !!
Until Next Time !
