DIY Keira Jumpsuit [made for and modeled by my daughter]
Let me introduce you to the Keira Jumpsuit a new pattern by Shari from My Daily Threadz with her indie pattern label Nina Ramel Patterns. This is my second version of the pattern and you can see my original version made with sweatshirt fleece. This pattern does call for a knit fabric but I don't really like to follow all the rules when sewing. I knew from my first time around with the pattern I could use a woven fabric with a stretch. I hacked this version a little and used this sateen stretch from Fabric Mart that worked well. [The Fabric is all gone!]
I worked out a few kinks with the first go round which mainly was an issue using the thick fleece fabric. This time I did not add the gathered waistband, I added an exposed zipper in the back, rounded the neckline a little and I added a wide cuff to the pant legs.
You can also see that my neckline is showing a little more Va-Va-Va-Voom if you know what I'm talking about! But Mori's a youngin' who can wear this daring neckline, it's age appropriate for Mori but the version on the cover of the pattern is for the more mature woman.
