Floral Jumper – Simplicity 8426


Can you tell how excited I am about this jumpsuit?

I am a fan of just about anything jumpsuit related, so when I saw this new pattern released a few months ago by MiMi G and Simplicity I knew I had to have it!  This jumpsuit had so many elements to it that I love: Wide Legs, Pockets, Exposed Shoulders !!!!   
Ok, once again I\’m getting ahead of myself!  
The Pattern…..
Getting my hands on this pattern proved to be a task in and of itself! I\’m really shocked each time I go to Joanns by just how many people sew now because the good patterns are ALWAYS hard to find. With more and more sewist reinventing and making patterns trendy patterns are flying off the shelf. I had to wait almost a month to get my hands on this pattern but at last, I succeeded!   

The Fabric….

I purchased a navy blue woven, from Mood Fabrics, for this jumpsuit but was disappointed to learn that I didn\’t have enough, so I was on the hunt again. Not having enough of the woven ended up being a blessing in disguise because the minute I laid eyes on this floral stretch denim at my local Joann\’s, I KNEW this was it! 

Let\’s Talk More About The Pattern ……  

Pattern Description: wide leg pant jumpsuit and contrast bodice with optional Peter Pan collar.
Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were easy and pretty straight forward.
MI also has a youtube Sew-A-Long
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I am a huge jumpsuit fan so the fact that this jumpsuit had so many elements to it (Exposed Shoulders, Pockets and Wide Legs ) made it easily one of my all around favorites.
Fabric Used: Floral Print Stretch Jean from Joann Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made no alterations to this jumpsuit, I didn\’t even have to lengthen the legs!
Would you sew it again? Absolutely, I plan to in a solid color .

 Pockets are always a win !!!!

Until Next Time XOXO !!
