Yesterday I wrote about weighing down your hems and what the benefits are when appropriate of course and so today I am wearing the jumpsuit I made using McCalls 6083 which has the weights in the hem so that pant leg pulls slightly and falls to the floor.
Review of the pattern and Get The Look pics below ;-)
Pattern Review McCall's 6083
Pattern Description: Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 4 for the top and a size 10 for the bottom
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope when you were done? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a pretty easy pattern to tackle, I have made it before so I didn't need the instructions however it is a good beginner project for those just getting started.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I don't dislike anything. I like the wrap bodice and how quickly this sews up fr those days when you just want to do some mindless sewing without thinking too much, lol
Fabric Used: Rayon Jersey Black
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made?: None other than cut a size 4 for the top because the printed finished measurement was 35" and I am a 32 so I knew that was enough ease for me and the pants I knew I wanted them to be loose and not cling to me so I cut the size 10 and just faded down the waist to fit the bodice.
Would you sew it again? No, I think I am done with it but I will probably use it to do a teaching video on reading and following patterns.
Would you recommend it to others? I do recommend this as a great beginner project, its easy to fit and there are very few pieces to cut and sew.

When I was in San Fran I went to a little shop that was so cute and full of little gems, I found this delicate ring (worn in pic above) with a yellow stone and it was so darn cute I couldn't help it.
Sam was the nice young man who let me wander aimlessly around his store, lol and was kind enough to humor me with a pic. He says they didn't have a site yet but here is the info I do have for them.
