Spring is in the air! It was a gorgeous 70 degrees today! So I'm not in full-blown spring-sewing mode! According to magazines and fashion experts, jumpsuits and rompers (which are not for me) have become a must have attire for every women’s wardrobe. Best feature of this piece of clothing is that it can be worn by person of any size as these can be made in a wide range of lengths, from short rompers to long and flowy pantsuit. No matter which length you prefer, you can still look chic and iconic

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think it does.
Fabric: Silk Twill from Vogue Fabrics
Were the instructions easy to follow? This pattern was extremely easy. After fighting with the last project, this one was a breeze!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I'd been looking for a jumpsuit pattern for a while. This one is a real treat for me, because I love both styles. Also, it's drafted for either a woven or a knit!
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthened the bodice by 1". But I hadn't noticed that the seam allowance for the bodice and the pant part was supposed to be 1". Since I miscalculated my alteration, I used a 5/8" allowance and 3/8" wide elastic for the waist. I also lengthened the pants by 3".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? If you like jumpsuits, I recommend this pattern. I will also sew View C in a knit for Summer!
