The single item of clothing that I have to show for the last 30 months is McCall's 6332 (out of print).
|Great pattern, sorry it's OOP.|
Several years ago, I made a last-minute satin jumpsuit for my daughter to wear to a charity gala. When a recent event was approaching, she decided she didn't want to wear her trusty black orchestra gown again, so asked for a (last-minute) velvet jumpsuit instead.
This is the original from 2012. If she appears to be awkwardly posing, it is because the crotch is a tad short. As I may have mentioned, it was a last-minute request and she was "too busy" for fittings. So I guesstimated some things. She was very, very careful when she sat down that night.
After a weekend locked in my new basement sewing chamber, I churned out a pretty nice update. I measured carefully and lengthened the crotch by about 1.5" and FBA'd the top. The bust could have used more fabric. (Once again, we didn't have time for a muslin.) She could comfortably sit down this time, but had to be very careful about arm placement to keep that full bust covered.
