BAM! DIY "Gwen" Jumpsuit Plus Tutorial!

Good Evening Loves!!!
I have been MIA for a while, but trust I HAVE been sewing.  I will be using the next couple of weeks to update the blog with the many garments I have contructed.  I will be taking the weekend to fabric shop in NY and am eager to share with you my finds!
August is officially BAM in my FB sewing group.  What is BAM you might ask?  Its Blogger Appreciation Month.  Four of my amazingly talented sew sisters and I are all doing tutorials this month to share with our following!  Before I get to the specifics, let me introduce you to my sew sisters!
Donna - http://www.curvygirlsarechic.com/ My sister from another mister (tee hee).  Donna has some crazy, sick skills! Her attention to detail and technique is where I aspire to grow towards.  I have personally seen some of her couture work and OMG!!!! She has a habit of over sharing fabric sales but I love her all the same! LOL
Tasha - http://thetelltaletasha.blogspot.com/ .  Tasha is an amazingly talented sewing blogger with a sickening head of hair I might add.  I enjoy reading her blog and she is as amazing on her blog as she is in person. 
Shari (#1) - http://shesewshari.blogspot.com/ I love Shari's style as well as her personality! I favor towards Shari's dresses.  They all fit her so well, not to mention she has been sewing FOREVER!!!
Shari (#2) - http://www.mydailythreadz.me/ Yes there are two Shari's lol.  Shari is my laughing partner! We cut up nonstop!!! Shari has a great eye for detail and a mean shoe game!

Be sure to check out my sew sisters blogs. They are all sew awesome!!!!
So thats it.  This is out first BAM and I am looking forward to more!  The "Gwen" was inspired by one of my favorite artist and designers, Gwen Stefani.  I am in love with her style and like myself, she is know to rock the hell out of a jumpsuit! 
Since I have already created my garment and tutorial, I will be doing anther before month end.  For now, the garment below was constructed using Simplicity 1366 (Top) and McCall's 6848 (bottom).
I purchased this Poly Crepe from Fabric Mart.  I purchased 5 yards.  You can find the fabric Here. I made a last minute decision to add a sash which is 10x72 inches and is not included in the tut.  I love the way this jumpsuit came out!!! Its a perfect transition into fall piece and is light and airy. 
You can locate the tutorial on YouTube ( Here  ).  Be sure to give me that thumbs up if you like and subscribe!

 Hope you love it!
See ya soon!
