"My goal is to build a life I don't need a vacation from"
Hello sewing loves I'm back and happy Tuesday to you all! I know it's been a couple of weeks since you've heard from me but trust me I've been really busy with my children, outside projects and my career aka the place that pays the bills. The past three weeks have been so crazy I mean more than usual and I literally had my first chance to sew for the blog this past weekend. Seriously yall between major home repairs and I do mean major, preparing kids for school (including my daughter's return to Clark University) and work the only thing I've wanted to do is sleep and I haven't really been able to do that. Me and my husband actually looked at each other and said "I think we're being PUNKED!" Come on Ashton Kutcher come out wherever you are because this simply can't all be real! Needless to say things have eased up a little bit which is why I'm here to share with you today.
Trust me this post is going to be quick and easy because as I've said duty still calls! LOL Anyhoo I've been missing my studio and machines so much these past several weeks that I just had to get back in there even if only for a couple of hours. So this past Saturday I grabbed my keys and went to the studio with a plan not to leave until I finished at least one look to share with my peeps! As luck would have it McCalls released some early fall patterns and I just so happened to have a few of their easy peezy ones on deck. For those of you that know me you know I am a lover of jumpsuits so when I came across McCalls 7632 jumpsuit pattern I knew it would be a winner. I don't know about you but I usually take out the pattern directions look at them and see if there's anything outside the obvious that I'm going to have to commit to so I can gage just how long it should take me. When I say easy peezy I truly mean this one is EASY PEEZY! Now family you know I wouldn't lie to you so trust me when I say you can make this one happen no matter your skill level with very little fuss at all. If you can put in an invisible zipper then you have absolutely nothing to worry about with this one, that's just how easy it is.
From start to finish it only took me a couple of hours to pull this baby together! Oh and yes I mean serged seams, hand sewn hem and lining! Before I even cut the pattern out I knew exactly which fabric I was going to use because I've been dying to cut into this fabulousness since the day I purchased it a couple of months ago. This floral Poly Crepe fabric is amazingly lightweight, great to work with and it totally makes this jumpsuit one of my absolute favorites. I think my favorite thing about the jumpsuit would be the shoulder ties! OMG YES! I love these shoulder ties and have big plans for them in the near future, so look out for that. All in all loves this jumpsuit pattern was worth taking a break from my crazy schedule to make happen and I would definitely suggest adding this one to your to sew pattern list! Until next time loves, God willing that is, have a fabulous rest of the week!
I purchased the last of this fabric from Natan Fabrics in downtown Los Angeles and have a special request for more if they happen to get any in stock. I made View D and the only changes I would make for my next one is adding length to the pants so I can wear it with heels and maybe dropping the crotch about an extra inch. Other than that it's a go right out of the package! Happy Sewing!
