Handmade Wardrobe // On The Fence


So. This jumpsuit. 

I don't love it. But I like it. It's M7756, and I do absolutely adore the silhouette. Overall, I like how it came out, I just have some issues with fit and fabric choice. 

I really should have raised the neckline an inch or so and removed some excess from the bust area. If you haven't noticed, I have no boobs. So theres just a little too much extra fabric hanging around that area. And combined with the daring low neckline, well, there may be a few people that got to see a bit too much of me that day. Nothing a little fashion tape can't fix in the future. But still. I don't love that idea. So small bust people - take note. 

That, and theres my fabric choice. I got a little too excited about the idea of using this mustard ponte knit for a jumpsuit, that I disregarded that the pattern called for lightweight fabrics. It works for the most part, but because of the lining and facing, it gets a little bulky in spots. It is pretty cozy, though. 

So yeah, just keeping it real. I know I usually rave about my makes and how much I love them. But it's not all sunshine and rainbows. Some don't turn out exactly how I picture. Although, this one isn't a total lose, and I'll still be making it anaddition to my wardrobe. Just with tape always on hand. And maybe one day I'll get around to making a second version with the necessary revisions.
