BHL Holly: Mission Accomplished

Flight Lietenant Said&Done here for one last mission: to hand over the controls of Team JumpingintoJune to Holly:

IMG_1636Yes Ma’am, this is Holly taking over!


If your are unsure what all this madness is about, look no further than here. This is what #jumpingintojune is all about.

IMG_1633This is my second jumpsuit for June, after going almost 46 years without any (well, come to think of it, let’s take off the first two years, there will have been babygrows involved…). I almost made the BHL Holly, just chickened out on the flatfront bottoms and added a pleat for extra tummy room. Only that I then decided tummy pleats aren’t think either so I sewed them down. Could have stayed with the straight Holly…


Yes, those legs are too long – I rather overestimated the height of my heals… There is a lot of silliness going on in the back croth to lower back area.

Wait, magic fix:


See, that’s a lot better. So while I wait for someone to bring me a cocktail  I’ll leave you to consider all the other jumpsuits (a summary post of which I’ll compile once I’m back from an impromptu holiday) that made the jump into June.









You didn’t really think I’d go quietly into the sunset, did you 😉 !

    I love the cowl neck on you, so pretty! 🙂 Such a great pattern, and so much fun to wear – you’ll really get a lot of use out of it this summer 🙂 I definitely think you could have left the flat front in the pants part – maybe you could make another pair? 😉

    You’re hilarious, and having so much fun that you’ll need to make another jumpsuit when you’re back from holiday. I really really like that neckline on the Holly.

    How fun! Love the jumpsuit. Holly is on my list – I have it all traced, but I keep chickening out.

      Do give it a try. It’s surprisingly easy to make, you’ll be wearing it before you know it!

    You are too cute, Chris! I love the jumpsuits and am considering joining in with your fun, depending on time. I really like that neckline, too!

    Wow, jumpsuit-offensive by chris – Great work. No more to say, just joining the positive feedback of all the others. But there’s only little critique and I think you know what I am referring to 😉

    Keep on jumping!

      I hear you Mia, I hear you. Still being stubborn though 😉

  14. […] is what I call my Beach Bum Jumpsuit, a nice complement to the Aviator, the Holly and the Fake Jumpsuit, I think. It comes from the most recent issue of Burdastyle, 7/2015 […]
