So I've added a new member to my ever growing jumpsuit collection. This time it's Rachel Comey's Vogue 1523 pattern.
This pattern is my newest love! You know how you make something and you just can't wait to put it on and you want to wear it everyday? That's how I'm feeling about this jumpsuit. It's like pajama dressing because it's even though it's slim cut, it's pretty loose fitting, while at the same time it has waist shaping. I normally don't go for this cropped length pant, but these work. I think it's because of the proportions. The billowy Bishop sleeves just balance out the look. And also with these type of pants, I can go from heels to flats and that's what makes this super wearable!
Tracee Ellis Ross wore the short sleeve version of the Rachel Comey Silt Jumpsuit on What Happens LIVE last year. She's a fan of the designer and wears pieces from her collection often. That shows you right there this is the designer for the "cool girls"!
This jumpsuit has really great lines that get a little lost in my print. So here's the technical drawing so you can see!
My fabric is this fabulous rayon crepe that drapes with perfection that I got at Fine Fabrics. I cut the size 14. I lengthened the bodice by an inch and I lengthened the hem of the pants by 3 inches.
The jumpsuit is done in French seams and it also has bias bound edges. Not exactly a quick project!
And this is a zip-front jumpsuit. That's a bonus!
Above the zipper is a deep v-front. If this is too deep for you, keep that in mind and buy a zipper longer than what is recommended and raise it.
I love these sleeves! They give the jumpsuit that 70s vibe that's so popular right now.
The sleeves have buttoned cuffs and a continuous lap. My buttons are adorable and I love the vintage look.
The cropped pants have a welt back pocket. I won't go into any details because I've been showing welts on the last couple of projects.
But here is a close up. As much as I love, love, love this print, so much gets lost in it.
I decided to omit the self belt. It's not like it would really be seen anyway. And I kind of like breaking the print up, slightly. If I get around to it, I think I'll make this one in a solid too!
Love, love, love! It looks good, both inside and out.ReplyDelete

I almost bought this pattern at the last Vogue sale, but hesitated because I wasn't sure how it would look on a real woman and not a skinny model girl. I am so glad you made it, because it absolutely stuns on you! You've inspired me to make it. Brava.ReplyDelete

This is stunning, Erica! This pattern is on its way to me, I plan on making the lightweight Denim version for next spring. Your execution is flawless and I do love the fabric which gives an almost crochet lace overlay effect!ReplyDelete
I fell in love with this fabric when I first saw it. Thanks so much Tany!Delete
