Initially, after looking at the pattern pieces, I thought the crotch would be too low and the cut-out to high, but they were fine. It turned out the shoulder seam at front and back were too low and I had to raise them by 5/8 of an inch to prevent drooping in the front. I thought the length of the legs would be long enough to accommodate moderate heels, but alas, it skimmed the top of my bare feet without being hemmed. This is a fact I did not discover until the pattern was cut. I ended up adding a cuff to the bottom to extend it.
There were very few construction steps, so I pressed on hoping it would all come together in the end; it did not.This ill-fitting jumpsuit is not flattering at all! I almost did not post this project. As matter of fact, it is wrinkled in the photos because I left (threw) it to a pile on the floor and did not iron it before taking pictures. ;p Hillary inspired my transparency with this project by boldly posting her project fail last week (If you look at her failure, be sure to stick around and look at all of her wonderful successes).
Here we go:
|The long darts in the back do nothing to add shaping to the back.|
|Possibly the only redeeming angle.|
|Seriously, look at the bunching in the middle!|
My husband likes it as does my son. Both think it is hilarious to have open "tickle access". I will wear it around the house for kicks. Life is short; it is only fabric. If we cannot laugh at our failures are we really growing?
