So, yeah... jumpsuits. Everyone is/will be sewing one this season. I really like them, more then I expected and wanted to give one a try. To tone down the mega-trendiness of it I used a lovely lightweight blue with white chambray. I (again)

This garment was sewn up for my May Fabric Mart blog post here. I go into more detail about how this pattern is magnificently huge even though I went down one size for everything when I was prepping the tissue. Long story short, I would go down 2 whole sizes in the bodice next go round if I were to sew this again. You can plainly see it's plenty roomy after sizing down. FYI: The pattern envelope recommended I make am 16 bust and 20 hip... I cut a 14 bust and 18 hip... I estimate the bust is now between a 12 and 14.
To be very honest, this is an extremely easy pattern to sew up. There are no sleeves to set in, the waist is elastic and there are no zippers or closures. It's very easy to get this thing on. The overlapping bodice front and back allow for that. I don't feel like those parts are going to slide open or fly open with the wind either.
That's that. I've been super busy in life these days, hence the minimal blogging. I started working again some weeks back, no more stay at home momma! I'm about 3 weeks from my half marathon, so running takes up most of my free time in the evenings. And for folks who've expressed concerns about things here in Baltimore city for me... all's well and I am safe along with my family. There aren't constant helicopters over my house his week and the National Guard moved out from the parking lot on one of my running trails. But I've got a long list of sewing ideas in my head and I hope to get it all done before winter comes back (Ughhhhhhhh. Disgusting thought!)
