Jumpsuit DIY.

Hello friends! The weekend is around the corner, YAY! I would love to get my sewing room organized this weekend and start share how that all goes down. I also have a few home decor projects to tackle and that will be coming up in next week’s posts so I am excited.

Today, is Simplicity 1115 day. I am fabric obsessed and love unique prints and designs. In addition, this jumpsuit is special to me because it is designed by one of my favorite sewing and styling bloggers Mimi G Style . If you haven’t already, please go check her blog out HERE. She has YouTube videos for all her sewing patterns.  My entire sewing knowledge and prowess comes from being self taught by YouTube videos and she is maybe responsible for about 50% of that. I love the clear and concise videos with lots of explaining and Mimi G hits it on the head every time. If only she did Ankara…a girl can dream.

I had this fabric for a long long time and really was scared of cutting into it. As soon as i saw this pattern I knew I had to make it and had the perfect fabric for it. The fabric is a scuba knit, which is a medium to heavy weight and very soft to the touch. I made view C without the belt. I had this white belt in my closet that goes great with the fabric too.

Styling: White wedges I had in my closet. Chain link silver necklace, hoop earrings and a chunky wrist watch. White belt thrifted.

Pattern Review: This one comes with a YouTube video so that is awesome. It is a simple enough pattern without the video anyway and can be a good first project for those learning to sew with boning. This was my first one with boning as well. I did make a mock up in a test fabric to get the right fit before committing to this fabric. All in all quite a nice experience and I will definitely make one again.

*Sewing Terms Simplified*

Boning: Stiff strip made of either plastic, metal or  strip helps fabric maintain its shape and not sag or wrinkle. Used in this design in the front running from bust-line to waistline.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Sharing and liking is caring so go ahead and share if you enjoyed the post.

Until next time, Peace Love and Kisses.
