New Look 6413 | Dressy Casual Jumpsuit - Erica Bunker DIY Style!
So I made another jumpsuit.  What can I say?  I love them.  It's the holiday season and sometimes I just want something to throw on that's a complete no-brainer.  This New Look 6413 jumpsuit for me, meets the description of "Dressy Casual".  It works for a day party or cocktail hour.

I used some kind of black crepe poly from Hancock.  They weight of the fabric was perfect.  Drapey enough for this style, yet opague enough that special underpinnings weren't necessary.  I cut a size 14.  I added an inch to the bodice and 2 inches to the pant length.

The jumpsuit has dolman sleeves and a front invisible zipper that extends to the elastic waist.  Which makes getting in and out of it a breeze.

The pants have elasticized leg openings, but only in the back.

Styling tip:  For a daytime dressy casual look, I wore my bejeweled turban that I picked up from a local boutique.  I love the vintage glam that it gave the jumpsuit.  I accessorized with this month's Rocksbox pieces:  Kendra Scott Dee Earrings in Black; Gorjana Bali Lariat Necklace...

  2. Beautiful, chic and elegant jumpsuit. Gorgeous. To my eye, the jumpsuit looks like an aubergine color. However, I know sometimes colors can get skewed in photography. Regardless, you look gorgeous (as always) in this ensemble.
