Vogue 1308 and Vogue 1245 Draped Sleeves Jumpsuit

Hello! It's quite hot every day. I wouldn't wear a heavy outfit in summer. What is the temperature now? Wow! It's as high as my body temperature! Unbelievable! This jumpsuit is ultra comfortable to wear the hot summer.





 
I'm really bad at getting up early in summer (Winter too!). Jumpsuits help me to decide which clothes I choose in busy morning. I really wanted to make a jumpsuit with an off shoulder, but I couldn't find an appropriate pattern. I decided to combine two Vogue patterns; Vogue 1308 and Vogue 1245. I have made some jumpsuits with Vogue 1308, but it was the first time that I used Vogue 1245. They are great pattern, I think.

I made this blouse as a trial. I used a cheap polyester (Per one meter  JPY100yen=USD1). This fabric is too hard to use with this design. To be honest, I don't like it and never wear it in public. I didn't mind, because I don't wear a blouse with polyester 100% in summer. However, I love the design; the draped sleeves are especially cute.

I made the jumpsuit with linen chambray. I think it's hard to see from the photos, this fabric shines a little. This linen jumpsuit was set off against the strong sunshine. This linen is very light and soft. These big draped sleeves are easier for air to circulate.
I cut a size S (Top) and 8-10 (Pants). I sewed the pants parts to an inch under the waistline of the blouse together. I tied a bow belt around the waist, and also used an elastic band around the waistline. So it will prevent the pants to slip down if the knot is loose.
I think the model in the envelope (Vogue1380) is wearing a size 6-8. I cut a size 8-10, but my pants are bigger and wider than the model is wearing. I had to take about an inch out of each leg.

I used two patterns reluctantly, but I am happy with the jumpsuit. I love the both patterns. This jumpsuit keeps me cool in dry heat and humidity. 
I hope you have a great summer! Thank you for reading!


Total time spent: 5 hours (Blouse), 8 hours (Jumpsuit)

  6. Great jumpsuit, and I really like that shiny linen. I'm a big fan of linen anyway, shiny or not, because it's really comfortable in hot weather.
