DIY RED JUMPSUIT USING VOGUE #1645
HI DARLINGS! I love love LOVE this jumpsuit pattern by RACHEL COMEY for VOGUE PATTERNS. I will say that it is reminiscent of another pattern MCCALL put out during the summer with an overlay but this is much more tailored and has great details.
VOGUE PATTERN #1645
This V1645 PATTERN has a ton of interesting details. The construction is definitely for the more advanced sewist, it’s not that it is hard to construct it’s just that if you don’t know the construction, in general, you may find these instructions a bit confusing. I loved the way they put this together although I would change the order of construction a bit for ease. The inside side seam zipper is great and hidden under the overlay which is clever and the pockets are also attached slightly different because one is on the actual side seam of the pant and the other is constructed on the overlay.
The underarm detail was really cool too, it has a band that adds interest and then you finish the rest of the armhole with bias binding. The other thing I liked was how tailored it looks in the back with the darts and the belt that goes from one dart seam in the back around to the front. Then there is the really cool covered belt, this pattern is really cool.
I suggest a heavier weight fabric to get the proper look, you need weight to get that clean line drape on the overlay. I used a DOUBLE FACED WOOL CREPE from MOOD. You can see me chatting away about this fabric in my last FABRIC HAUL VIDEO
I wore my STEVE MADDEN heels (they are on sale HERE) some silver earrings and a red lip. The jumpsuit is plenty so I kept everything else pretty simple.
