The Jumping out of Summer Jumpsuit

I realize I might be going on a bit about this – but I loved our recent holiday to Mallorca! Of course, I had a suitcase full of newly made clothing with me, mainly because our summer here in Germany had been quite cool and so my plans of wearing all my new clothes all summer long had been frustrated.


Case in point is this crazy patterned jumpsuit. I only wore it once before showing off in an old castle overlooking the marina of Palma de Mallorca!


But when I did take it on its first outing it was to a worthy destination: the city of Bamberg’s rose garden. I know, this blog seems to be turning into a travel blog all of a sudden. But I’m sure normal service will resume shortly, once I’ve overcome the realisation that German autumn and winter is a 5-month-long reality against which resistance is futile…


The jumpsuit is a hack of one of this summer’s little frilly tops that Burdastyle was full of and the BHL Holly bottoms.


The bathroom question was solved by adding a back split and tie. Please excuse the bra – I didn’t have a strapless bra with me on holiday…


So with this I’m jumping out of summer and hope to be able to blog about my autumn sewing soon.

    Love it and the back is genius, it looks perfect for a relaxed summer holiday! Jumping into June or in and out of something else needs to happen again!

      I agree, that would be rather fun! Any ideas for further pun related sewing?

        Hmm, I’m playing garments and months in my head, but I would really love to sew something in crushed or other velvet, or some bling. I know neither practical nor helpful.

        That’s a bit like “Blingaling for Christmas”, ist’t it? 😉

      Thank you Linda! Unfortunately it’s now back to a rather bleak and dreary garden for the forseeable future…
