Navy tie halter jumpsuit (!)

That's right--a jumpsuit! After experimenting with rompers in recent summers, this year I've expanded to sewing and wearing jumpsuits. This one was inspired by a couple I've seen online... I tweaked a pattern to make it more similar... and I'm really happy with how it turned out!

I was inspired by these dramatic things, and a lady I saw in a black print strapless full-length romper at the farmers' market. Even with long pants instead of romper shorts, this kind of thing is summery and comfortable on a warm day, into evening!

The inspirations:

The final product. I used Simplicity 1355, which I've used a lot recently for dresses, rompers, and even a top! The top is very similar to the black Anthropologie windowpane one, but that one has a fitted waist and side zipper. I know from experience with this pattern that it's pretty roomy in the waist, so I cut one size smaller at the waist and fanned it out up at the bust and down at the hips.

It really is so comfy to wear! I used this cute navy print from Organic Cotton Plus. I love that it's loose but not sloppy.

The pattern is unlined, so it's extra nice to have organic cotton against my skin (allllll over my body in a full-length jumpsuit!)!

Pattern: Simplicity 1355

  • Cut the waist one size smaller than the rest for a more fitted shape; tapered to hips and bust
  • Cut length one size larger/longer
  • Cut the tie at the largest size but it was still too short for a nice long tie (it ties in back)

One more plug for these shoes--they are the greatest. I shopped for literally hours online and was so happy to find them at Target, did the order-online-pick-up-in-store thing. I think they're almost sold out now, so here are some other options. They go with everything!

Thanks to Organic Cotton Plus for providing me the fabric for this jumpsuit!
