I seem to have latched on to this jumpsuit trend. I can’t get over how well put together you can look in one easy swoop. No guessing, the same as with a dress, yet legs covered. All that wrapped into one piece. Who knew?  Stylist are kinda smart I think.  They pay attention to everything, so people like me can pick and choose any of the latest designs to match our style and taste.

In this case, I have been trying out some new shapes. Shapes I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards, were it not for this website, “Who What Where” giving me fantastic ideas for every occasion and taste.   This jumpsuit can even transfer into a little “Hammer Time” action.

The fabric is a lux silk jersey I got from New York on my vacation back in April. This fabric feels awesome, and ooh so comfy.  I can wear this jumpsuit dressed up or just lounging around the house, it’s just that comfortable.  I didn’t know silk jersey sewed up so nice and easily.

That pattern is McCall’s 7099 .  Really easy to sew together with the following changes:
  1. Raised armhole by 1/2″
  2. took 3/4″ off shoulder length
  3. Added scoop pockets instead of the inseam pockets in the pattern
  4. Topstitched the channel for the elastic instead of just having it hang loose inside.
  5. No FBA, cut a size 14
  6. Took out a 1/2″ wedge at the front surplice neckline so it wouldn’t gap
The bodice is extremely loose fitting…I even took out some fullness in the back so I wouldn’t look like a quarterback.  This does make it a little more challenging to take on and off, but its better than it just hanging on me like a clothes line.
Shoutout to my daughter for styling my outfit.  Red shoes, I feel so Dorothy!  Y’all know I would have never, ever!! considered red shoes with this outfit.  So very cool.  All I need is a full-time stylist and I will be more diva-lishious than I already am, for sure.
On another note:  I hope you enjoy the new update and look of my online sewing space we call a blog….got a really nice lady off of the online store “Etsy” to pull it together for me.  Her name is Chelsea with Bellaluluink.  Don’t worry this is non-sponsored, I just really liked working with her.  She made easy pudding of this mess of a blog I had going.  Like I said before…I SEW, that is all.  I do know my strengths.

My new logo and business cards were designed by Dena Jackson Studio, a really talented lady and extremely professional.

As well as with my skills and other areas in life, I try to improve and grow in knowledge and understanding.  Yet there are times I respect the craft and delegate more difficult task to someone more able than myself.  I have sought after professionals who’s skill sets far outshine my own.  Anytime you have something or any services you like sharing on your blog, I am always grateful for the insight.  Online reviews are very helpful.  So, do tell about any services you have been keen to delegating to the more inclined mind.

    Busy-ness in my studio is what I would call “all the activity” going on in my little slice of the world.  However, I have been remiss in sharing with you my daily adventures due to the style of my blog.  I don’t want to flood you with rantings, so, I have taken to updating quick post via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, as a means of rapid firing quick snippets of the fun that goes on behind the scenes of Sew-To-Fit.  Occasionally, I may take on an even more challenging and extended project, such a a wedding dress.  You never know.  You just have to come around to see for yourself.

    A Tital-wave of a wedding dress..Now this was a challenge!!!

    I actually do alterations sometimes for close friends and family and sometimes “others” if they play well, heck, I may even make a dress or two every once in a while.

    OMG, is that grey hair peeking out.  I am so involved.

    If someone calls me and I really am up for a challenge, I might accept a charge to remake or rescue a damsel in distress, such as with this bride who ordered, “God forbide” a dress from China!!!!  Oh, the horror.

    I call this the China disaster. 
    I was delighted to take on the challenge and work it out for her…only because she is a friend and co-worker of my daughter, otherwise, this would have been something she would have had to endure alone.  
    Consider joining me, by checking my sidebar or visiting my inta-feeds on Instagram and Twitter @sewtofit and like my Facebook page @sewtofit.  I’m looking forward to having you join me in sharing my daily, sometimes hourly behind the scenes updates.  Then returning here once or more times each week for a more in depth explanation of what I come up with during my sewing journey. 
    Just a peek into my world..

    You never know you might very well enjoy my ranting so much so that you decide to make my page your homepage when you login to the worldwide web.

    Until then, thank you for joining me in sharing the things I enjoy the most.
