Made by a Fabricista: Fall Prep Jumpsuit






Disclaimer:  I no way am I tired of this summer weather!  I have been traveling a great deal lately, and honestly, a little low on inspiration.  I cam across a jumpsuit (big surprise) and completely fell in love.  I love anything with top stitching, so this was right up my alley!

The fabric used for this post is a 100% Wool Gabardine fabric from Fabric Mart.  Although this color is no longer available, here are some other options...HEREHERE, & HERE.  The color options are endless!

Of course, I am always mixing patterns, the ones used for this garment are Vogue 9103 and McCalls 6930.

I installed exposed zippers for a unique finish in the front and back.  At first thought, I was going to use an invisible zipper, but considering the bodice and waistband was doubled, I didn't want to risk the zipper breaking.  Ironically enough, I had a 24" zipper in my stash and it work out!

The only adjustments I had to make was with the back bodice.  I ended up having to cut 2 inches from the center back and scale it down to the side seam in order to eliminate bulk once I completed the garment.  Other than that, everything worked out just fine.

Heres a shot of the top stitching.  I did in on one side instead of both just to have a small element of "pop".  I will be working top stitching into may of the garments I have planed for a mini self collection this fall.


I have a tutorial for the pattern adjustments (HERE).  I was a labor of frustration, but I was able to get it posted.  Just know my heart is in the right place!!! I have a ton of execution issues to work through that I must over come in the coming months!



















Thanks for visiting!
