I'm going to Paris ! and a Self Drafted Jumpsuit

Yes . That's right ,a jumpsuit.  I had decided that I would absolutely not fall for the jumpsuit craze. But then, I bought this Aztec print knit and it shouted out JUMPSUIT and I couldn't shut it up. I wanted something different to wear to a family gathering at one of my sisters and this seemed just the thing.

I used a t-shirt pattern andcut it off three inches below the waistline.I slashed it at the shoulder to the waist, spread it a couple of inches in the front and an inch at the back, gathered it a bit  (in the front) and ended up with a cap sleeve look.  I  joined the top  to my Silhouette yoga pant pattern to which I added a couple of inches at the side seams.  I added elastic at the waist,which formed a blouson thanks to the three extra inches below the waist . A slit opening at the back neckline with a loop and button closure is the only way to put on or remove this thing.

This is what it looks like on .

This is a very comfortable outfit and I love to wear it but the going to the bathroom is not fun!!!

Oh!! Yes ! I'm going to Paris ! With my daughter ! We leave Saturday ! So excited !!

I'll have lots to show you when I get back. I made a few things to take with me but have had no time for pictures. I hope to get some "action " shots in the "city of lights."

So more later for sure from
