Easy DIY Jumpsuit!! / #MCCDIY

OK ladies and gents :)
LET'S MAKE YOUR OWN!!!


I wont go into great detail with this post because I have provided a DIY for you guys to follow along and make you very own !!  But I will give you a few details . 

 I used Mcall 6964 for the top portion of the jumpsuit : 


I used Butterick 5893 for the bottom portion of the jumpsuit :



Both patterns where much easier than the first to use and I had to do very little cutting off the top of the pants. I did have to adjust the pants on the sides by the shirt running in s, m and large sizes and the pants running in number sizes. This adjustment was really easy and I show how I make it in the video ! I'll post some pictures of the outfit for you guys and then the link to the video !! I hope you enjoy and dont forget to tag #MCCDIY so i can see all my Crafty Doll photos !!!!












Until Next Time XOXOXO



Coral Comfort Jumpsuit / M6964 S1668

Oh !! I love this one for so many reasons !!

 

Comfort, Color, and Convenience !!!

This jumpsuit is sooo Comfortable the fabric is soft and extremely manageable !

I love the Color, the pictures just don't do it justice ...it has this beautiful sheen to it !

And the Convenience of it being one slip on slip off piece is just perfect !!

 

I used two patterns for this jumpsuit

 

Simplicity 1668 for the Pants

 

 

And McCall 6964 for the top

Now ,originally I didn't have a completed idea of how I wanted the jumper to look I just knew that I wanted a full jumper with flared legs and I wanted to do something different with the top .
I searched through a few top patterns before I found what I THOUGHT was the perfect one ,but two things ended up being wrong ... It was discontinued and as I did more research I discovered that it was more of a open wrap shirt than a full shirt that could be connected to pants ...
The look on the pattern was VERY deceiving so it was back to the drawing board once I made that discovery ...
 
What I ultimately ended up choosing was a McCall pattern I already had for the top and purchasing a pants pattern ....
 
HOWEVER .....
Even though I ended up taking the cheap way out by using a pattern I already had ,I had to adjust the pants because they where in sizes S,M,L and the top was In standard US sizes ...bummer...
I should have considered that
In the end I completed the top and then adjusted the pants to fit the waist of the top ...it was a constant try on and off process
 
 

I ended up having to trim about two inches off the top of the pants to get them to fall where I wanted ...I also added a attached belt that I made extra long so I could wrap it different ways



In the end I decided that I wanted the belt to be the main focal point of the jumper and I absolutely love how it turned out ...

I used a ITY knit from my local Joann's..

Oh! I also cut thumb holds in the sleeves just to give it a more sporty look

I plan to make one of these in black for a more dressy look, I've already spotted the fabric I plan on using ... Now it's just a matter if casing the joint until it goes on sale :)

 

Another beautiful addition to my fall collection !!!

Until next time lovelies XOXOXO !

Victorian Garden Skirt

 

"Gardening is how I relax.

It's another form of creating and playing with colors."

~ Oscar de la Renta

Meet Victorian Garden....

Midi Skirts are the epitome of Southern Style .. that would explain why I have fallen completely in love with them . Being born and raised in Alabama pretty much makes you a poster child in the"Southern Belle" category :)

These skirts effortlessly capture the femininity of a woman which is why I am so in love!!

The wonderful thing about the midi skirt is it can be created in so many diffrent styles...

I decided with this design to add pleats and of course a set of satin lined pockets ....

I don't have to tell you how handy pockets are in a skirt!!! So I added them !

 

 

 

This skirt screams CHIC... it shows off just enough leg to keep it classy but leave them wondering :)

 

 

 

 

I decided to use this beautiful double sided brocade that Icame across at my local Joanns... I knew the minute that I saw it what I was going to do with it !! I mean it literally jumped out at me in the store ...

 

The fabric is beautiful !


It has just enough fullness to stand out on its own with no petticoat or horse braid!!!

 

 

I paired the skirt with a beautiful gold top that I found at my local thrift store for $1.99
#Winning

 

 

Oh yeah! the shoes are also thrifted ( $4.99)

 

 

I decided to add this one to my store!!
