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!
