It took all my willpower not to make another dress but I thought that would be sort of ridiculous given I've got so many and I already have a few cut out to sew in hopefully the near future. I did the next best thing and made separates. I love the look of a jumpsuit, but honestly, I don't want to get undressed when I have to use the potty.
I found two patterns and decided these would fit the bill. I just wish you could feel how unbelievably soft this double brushed poly is I used from Fabric Mart. It's like wearing pure silk.
This was also very easy to sew. I used SewkeysE tape at the neckline, shoulders, pocket, sleeve, and lower hemlines. On the pants, I only needed it at the lower hem. This stuff is the miracle of taming knits so they behave properly. I love this stuff!
I use my serger for construction which makes this a super fast make. Literally, this can go together in about an hour from cut out to finishing the last stitch of the hemline. With CoVID going on and figuring out how to productively WFH, I needed a project like this! I appreciated a project like this.
The pants pattern, the Pippa from Rebecca Page is another instant gratification project. This is the first pair I made, the second pair is the first pair I posted that I made in a metallic ponte. From everything I've read about this pattern, it seems to work in a variety of fabrics from lightweight poly to heavier weight pontes.
I love this outfit! It's unbelievably soft and comfortable!
Thanks for reading!
