Navy tie halter jumpsuit (!)

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 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!
