I made pants….remember back when I said that I wanted to make more pants...well I kept good on that resolution. Albeit…they are more like pajama pants…but they are pants nonetheless.
I feel kinda chic in this pajama pant jumpsuit. This is the second jumpsuit I have made lately…the other was McCalls 7099 (unblogged…I’ll get to it eventually) and I have concluded that I like a fuller leg rather than tapered when it comes to jumpsuits.
Pattern: McCalls 6083
Fabric used: A black and white abstract dot polyester crepe.
Instructions: This is a fairly simple make…
Changes I made: I may have mentioned here before that I am fairly long waisted…but somehow I forgot this… again… After attaching the bodice to the pants, I proceeded to try it on…that sucker wasn’t going over my shoulders no matter how much I tried to wiggled myself in! Off it came…I recovered from an awful wedgie…. and out came the seam ripper. Ughh. I didn’t have enough fabric left to cut a new bodice so I made an 1 1/2 ” waist band/casing for the elastic which gave me the perfect amount of extra length I needed in the bodice. The print of this fabric hides the waistband really well…
Repeat worthy? Fer sure!!! I really want the shorts version in a printed challis or rayon. I know that I should be sewing more for fall now..and I am..but with the warm weather continuing, I’m tempted to let this baby jump the sewing queue in the shorts version.
