Hey everybody!! Happy Tuesday!! I was really excited to get this post up for many reasons, but mainly so I can share with you all some great resources that I found while trying to fix the fit of this jumpsuit. But before I get into all of that....how you doing? lol!! I'm back to 100%, feeling better, and ready to tackle this week!!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know the struggle I had with this jumpsuit pattern. The fit is STILL not perfect but its A LOT better!! In my opinion, Vogue 9075 definitely needs a quick muslin made up before you cut into your fabric, or at least take time to measure yourself a couple times, measure the pattern, and adjust if need be. Other than the fit issue I had, I really do love the jumpsuit! It has princess seams, lined bodice, POCKETS, and I like the length of it a lot!! I do plan to make it again and correct the fit!! For fabric, I used a cotton that I found at my local Walmart!! Score!!!! Love the big florals!!
With the help of Ms. Andrea from www.sewtofit.com I was able to visual see what my problem was and how to fix it! Its a really great video, and I highly recommend watching it, if you're having fitting issue. I found a full butt adjustment post (and a full butt adjustment cheatsheet) on www.colette.com, however being the visual learner that I am, Lindsey from www.insidethehem.com video was very helpful in understanding more about that adjustment. Heather from www.closetcasepatterns.com has a great post breaking down how to fix your jeans/pants fit along with photos to help!! This book, Pants For Real People, was also a book everyone recommended I buy and I have it in Amazon cart now!!
I love that I'm in a new phase of my sewing journey right now!! I feel like I'm learning more, and really taking time to be better. No everything is not going to be perfect, (heck, I'm not perfect so how can I expect to sew perfect) and thats okay! I plan to keep sewing, growing, getting better and I encourage you to do the same!
Thanks for stopping by today!! Oh yeah... be sure to stay tuned because I have an awesome discount for you coming up in my next post!!
