Maison Victor: A little more jumping


You just need to look at the state of my garden to know that this is not a recent project. In fact, while I have been sewing a bit, the weather has been atrocious here, so no recent projects have outdoor pictures, consequently no blog posts about them.
This jumpsuit was made in May following a Maison Victor pattern.


It was very much a werable muslin kind of project. I loved the suit in the magazine but wasn’t sure if I would actually like to wear it. In fact I’m still not sure it’s all that flattering on me, but I’ve worn it a few times during the summer and into early autumn, so I guess that tells me it’s  a winner.


The bottoms are like wide leg culottes, but I fell for the interesting arm scythe of the bodice.


Objectively speaking there is something a little off about these arm scythes on me. I can’t pin point what it is, but something bothers me when I look at it on a picture. But it’s a garment that is fun to wear and apparently a little fashion forward – I got a few compliments from friends as well as strangers who asked which shop I had bought it from, so that’s all good.

This is definitely the last of my summer garments that I have pictures for. The wax print dirndl did get finished but never worn as intended as the weather turned just days before the October fest style event I wanted to wear it for. But there is always next year for that!

    I think your arms look good in this style – no ‘bingo wings’ there. Flaunt them while you can!

    I think it is very sophisticated arm scythe, very designer. On the front seems like a raglan with a wide straps over shoulders that plunge into “V” on the back. It is so party garment if sewn from party fabric, something shiny velvety maybe, or even ecrew white. The only thing I thought is to make it maybe in full length. Love the print direction on the belt. It is very complimentary on you. Lovely!

      Wow, that is such a nice thing so say! Thank you very much. The idea of making it in white really appeals to me too – maybe there is one more jumpsuit on its way for next summer!
