Client Work: Bride's Stretch Lace- Wedding Reception- Jumpsuit revealed......

A few month's ago I was approached about making a wedding reception jumpsuit for a bride. I wrote about the inspiration, fabric and fitting details  HERE. I'm pleased to announce that my client, Mrs.D's, wedding has come and gone and in her very own words the "jumpsuit was a hit"!!!!  And I couldn't be happier to hear that! Alot of work went into that jumpsuit and it was well worth it.  This was my first ever jumpsuit for a bride. I'd made non-traditional wedding dress for a client years back. Forgive the photo quality. As you can see it's a cell phone pic she sent me since she hasn't received any of her formal pictures back from the photographer yet. I've seen the formal pics online and actually love this one a bit more since you can see the texture of the fabric. In addition to my work to construct the jumpsuit afterwards she had the fabric beaded to add some extra pizzazz. I think that was a wonderful choice and made the jumpsuit that much more glamorous. I love the attitude she displayed in this pic. From the hand on her hip, head thrown to the side and rose she carried--- it was obvious that she was feeling fabulous. She DEFINITELY looked the part!!!






Again, I used this pattern......


I won't do a formal pattern review. I'll just sum it up by saying the pattern was definitely a good one. It's well drafted and went together fairly easily. I only had to make 2 minor alterations for my client. I took it in a good bit so it would fit her like a glove. And it sure did!  I intend to make it for myself and highly recommend it to others.


.....and this fabric with 2 layers of white jet set underneath to prevent show through. I'm ALWAYS a bit nervous working with white. My entire sewing room is nearly cleared out and everything ends up covered in sheets. You can never be too cautious LOL!

.
I'm SO happy this turned out so lovely for my client. Mrs. D was such a pleasure to work with. It's always exciting to see wedding photos and know you've contributed in such a big way. This is the REASON I do what I do!!! Anyhow, enough about that. I'm on to the next adventure. Sewing pants for my male client. Had fitting that went great so working on the final pant. More to come.......
