Vogue 1249 - Mark & James by Badgley Mischka Strapless Jumpsuit8:00 PM

Pattern Sizing: 6-20, I cut the size 16.

Did it look like the pattern envelope once you were done sewing it? I think it's identical!
Fabric: Matte Jersey
Lining: Stretch mesh
Where the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were pretty average. If you have experience boning a strapless bodice and making pants, then you'll breeze right through the construction.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that this was a great strapless jumpsuit. I've been loving jumpsuits for a couple of years now, so I'm glad Vogue released this pattern. Also, I'm a fan of Badgley Mischka! Here's the RTW version:
Pattern alterations or design changes you made: I lengthened the bodice pieces by 1". I made a 1/2" FBA. And I added 3" to the pants length. I also added grosgrain as a facing.
***My Personal fabric recommendation - I think this jumpsuit would only be comfortable to wear in a fabric with stretch. If you decide to make this in a woven, just make sure it's one with stretch.
