Jumping Back to the First One

~ Wearing Jumpsuit #1 ~


What do you think?  Certainly a far cry from the previous one I've shown, hereBut I luv it just the same.  Well, in a different way.



~ Sure is comfy ~


It's like pre-painted painter's overalls.  Jackson Pollack overalls?

Made from challis using McCall's 7936, a Learn to Sew pattern.  Only the size I had was too big, so I made a button up flap to take up some slack up the middle front.  (I didn't make that up.)  




~ buttons from stash, as is the fabric ~



Oh, and I lengthened the sleeves as usual.




Off to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like when she goes live, and why not Spy Girl's Summertime?  Hope to see you all there.

  5. The print adds so much to a simple pattern. I was wondering where you found all of your fabric before I read the thread--haha-yep, pay-per-view!

    1. Actually most of the fabric I have is bought online through https://www.fabricmartfabrics.com (I just can't stop.) And pay-per-view seems to be what I do there.

  6. Jackson Pollack is exactly what I thought. You have a knack for picking outstanding, mind blowing, fabric! Fabulous job.

    1. You are too kind. But I do agree, the fabric is what makes this feel groovy! Thanks.

    1. Yes, cynthia, I wouldn't want to clash, you know.

  8. You have such wonderful fabric in your stash, and apparently, the perfect buttons to go with everything. I like how the print looks abstract from a distance (definitely a paint splatter) but is actually a floral.

    1. Hey Shelley, hard to say if it's a floral going splatter or a Rorschach reading as flower.

  9. you look terrific in this jumpsuit, the pattern, the ease, the nonchalance!

    I looked at the pattern link, the photo on cover shows the model in a much more fitted outfit, how many sizes over one's "true" size would a person need to get your more loose and easy fit?

    thank you!

    1. Hi Tess, My pattern was a size Large (16-18) indicated as bust 38-40, waist 30-32, hip 40-42 which I fit within. However, the amount of ease is extreme. Bust 46.5, hip 47.75 which is why I added the button flap to take up some of the excess.

      If I had a Medium (12-14) I would make that size and it would still be roomy with the finished measurements at 42.5 and 43.75. But that info isn't given until you buy the pattern. Hope that helps...

    1. Psychedelic garden is a good name for it, Melanie. Ah, you know what? Your piece of pallet necklace would look fabulous with it. Next time.
