Vogue 9260 Lace Lace Lace Jumpsuit

 Hi, friends! I made two Jumpsuits from Vogue9260.

HELLLLLP! I have NO space to put away a lot of lace fabrics😣
I want to tidy up my fabric stash but I can't even keep the stash anymore. I especially have too many lace fabrics! I wanted to use them up, so I made this jumpsuit with one of them. I pulled out Vogue 9260 from the 2017 spring/summer collection. My eye was caught by the laced-up front of it. It doesn't require eyelet pliers. I have made some laced-up designed clothes using eyelet pliers but I' ve never tried it like this.
 
I cut a size 8 and view B. All the instructions were pretty clear. I thought this pattern was designed to be loose-fitted. The sizing is very forgiving. The lace is very sheer, so I was going to add a lining. However, I made black long underpants with thin polyester instead. I didn't make a waist casing because I dislike showing that an elastic belt fits through it. I sewed the black ribbed knit fabric to the parts of the bodice and pants. I shortened the length of the bodice and crotch line by 1 1/2 inches. I really love this idea! It's very easy to take on and off. I don't wear a belt when wearing a jumpsuit because I don't want to be bothered in the bathroom.

This pattern has side pockets but I didn't make any (to not show through the pockets). The jumpsuit is very airy and light. I usually avoid wearing synthetic clothes in summer but I love it!


Hey, look-another version. I made black underpants, so I wanted to make another one. The fabric I used is a unique and lovely knit.

I took about a few inches out of each leg. I thought the crotch length was too long, so I shortened it by an inch. I usually shorten the length of the bodice and pants but I didn't make any change this time. If you are taller than me (I am 5' 4"), you might think they are too short.

Overall, I am happy with both of the jumpsuits! I might sew it again in the short length with linen. I particularly don't like summer weather. They are very cozy and good for hot weather. If you are looking for a comfortable jumpsuit pattern, I recommend it.

I have to stop buying lace fabrics🙀

  5. I like the way you used the different directions of stripes on the second jumpsuit, it makes it so interesting. And the first one is so elegant, you could wear it to some more formal party I think! Black ribbed knit fabric creates a good border between top and bottom parts. Lovely work, as always. *^o^*~~
    I've never made (or even worn) jumpsuits, I always wondered how to remove it while in the bathroom... ちょっと面倒くさいね? *^w^* Also, I always thought that my bum would be you know, clearly seen. But I've been thinking about trying this fashion for some time and maybe I should be more brave to try it, you look great in your jumpsuits! *^o^*

    1. Thank you for reading Joanna! I agree with you, the black ribbed knit really works well. If you have a chance, please make your jumpsuit. I would love to see it(*^^*) I think shirt jumpsuit is the most complicated...it's too much hassle to take it on and off. SUPER 面倒くさい! (;^_^A

  7. Hi Eli. How did you finish the neckline on the lace one? I have a lace dress to make for someone and am concerned about finishing the neckline.

    1. Hi, Sarah! I attached the neckline with the edge of the lace fabric like bias binding cover. I think it looks very natural. Do you see the link?

  13. Both are gorgeous, but I absolutely love the lace version! I love the black ribbing at the waist and the black layer underneath. I saw the pattern, but ignored it, now I'm going to take a second look based on your wonderful versions! I can imagine it in linen. I love lace too and have a huge stash. I keep it layered in bins, with tissue between each layer - but it still takes up a lot of room :)

    1. Thank you, Linda! I thought this lace version is too feminine for me but I love it now. I wouldn't have thought to use tissue to keep lace! Fantastic! I am so lazy but I would like to use your idea☺ I will make clothes using lace a lot!

  14. It's a brave choice with that lace but it looks very good and unique. I have to say though that my heart goes to the second stripy one, it's gorgeous!

  15. Those are both fantastic! I love your idea to use rib knit for the waist on your lace version -- it does look comfy and still stylish!

  16. Wow, wow, wow! Your sewing keeps me in awe. I wouldn't have ever thought to use the lace like you did and how fabulous it turned out! Everything you make looks couture and would have quite the price tag on it in the store. I love both of the versions you made. Your closet must be overflowing with so many beautiful makes these days!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Shirley! I am very pleased. To be honest, the lace was VERY cheap. It was around 3$ per yard😁 If you ever come to Japan, please let me know. I would tell you my favorite fabric store🌸

  17. Both so very pretty, both quite different. What a way to use up lace fabric - such a good idea. As for fabric stash - it just grows and grows, doesn't it. I have to start using mine up as well.
