Yup, that’s what Mr Loops called the zip file he sent me my photos across in… Rofl
Anyways, hi you crafty bunch!
Now I’ve wanted a nice summer playsuit for I don’t know how long! Downfall is I have big boobs and a long body and none of them fit me properly. I did manage to get a super sparkly and stretchy Xmas jumpsuit a couple of years ago that wasn’t too bad a fit as long as I wore it off the shoulders, but that’s about it, and that’s not really summer-wear!
So finally I got round to making myself one, and I’m in with it!!!
Teal is defo one of my fave colours at the moment (tho to be fair, I love pretty much ALL the colours!), and this is such a lovely floaty summery stretch fabric (from Minerva). Being a viscose jersey it certainly made me remember why I like it better than cotton jersey, cos the black trim and pockets on it are cotton jersey and the rolling was immense, lol.
I used the Patterns for Pirates Runabout Romper that I bought ages ago and never got round to making (like most of the patterns I have to be honest!!). I made the shorts and off the shoulder dolman options, and I made a few adaptations to fit my shape. I took an inch off the height of the shorts, added a couple of inches to the length of the legs (I like a good length on my shorts for ample chub rub prevention!), and added a couple of inches to the length of the top. In my next version I think I’ll probably take off another inch from the height of the shorts, and add another inch or two to the top length.
I really love it so expect to see another very similar outfit in the next week or two cos I got some cute grey skull jersey fabric that I want to make one with too and I can’t wait to get another done to wear whilst we still have some summer (such as it is in the UK…) left
Hey, I had a little fabric leftover… guess which pup is going to be getting a matching t-shirt?..
Edit: → I MADE IT!! ←
Hope you like!
