Coral Comfort Jumpsuit / M6964 S1668

Oh !! I love this one for so many reasons !!

 

Comfort, Color, and Convenience !!!

This jumpsuit is sooo Comfortable the fabric is soft and extremely manageable !

I love the Color, the pictures just don't do it justice ...it has this beautiful sheen to it !

And the Convenience of it being one slip on slip off piece is just perfect !!

 

I used two patterns for this jumpsuit

 

Simplicity 1668 for the Pants

 

 

And McCall 6964 for the top

Now ,originally I didn't have a completed idea of how I wanted the jumper to look I just knew that I wanted a full jumper with flared legs and I wanted to do something different with the top .
I searched through a few top patterns before I found what I THOUGHT was the perfect one ,but two things ended up being wrong ... It was discontinued and as I did more research I discovered that it was more of a open wrap shirt than a full shirt that could be connected to pants ...
The look on the pattern was VERY deceiving so it was back to the drawing board once I made that discovery ...
 
What I ultimately ended up choosing was a McCall pattern I already had for the top and purchasing a pants pattern ....
 
HOWEVER .....
Even though I ended up taking the cheap way out by using a pattern I already had ,I had to adjust the pants because they where in sizes S,M,L and the top was In standard US sizes ...bummer...
I should have considered that
In the end I completed the top and then adjusted the pants to fit the waist of the top ...it was a constant try on and off process
 
 

I ended up having to trim about two inches off the top of the pants to get them to fall where I wanted ...I also added a attached belt that I made extra long so I could wrap it different ways



In the end I decided that I wanted the belt to be the main focal point of the jumper and I absolutely love how it turned out ...

I used a ITY knit from my local Joann's..

Oh! I also cut thumb holds in the sleeves just to give it a more sporty look

I plan to make one of these in black for a more dressy look, I've already spotted the fabric I plan on using ... Now it's just a matter if casing the joint until it goes on sale :)

 

Another beautiful addition to my fall collection !!!

Until next time lovelies XOXOXO !
