Vogue V9075 | Culottes jumpsuit in rust knit

Guys, beware! The jumpsuit season chez Sewrendipity has begun! Again! Yes, that’s a few good months to go until #JumpIntoJune hopefully kicks off again. But as I was saying in my previous post, sometimes a fabric + a pattern just equal love, and you have to go for it! And I do love my jumpsuits, and as a matter of fact, my culottes too!

80s throw-back culottes (Simplicity 3135)

post-101

You have no idea how happy it makes me to finally write a post that’s about something I actually made! This is a very long over due one, that I only just managed to photograph now. I’m telling you, sewing is a breeze, is the taking pictures that’s the killer! So really glad they are making an appearance on the blog at last.

As you might have seen here, I do love my culottes this year! I actually made this particular project in spring, but the weather got really warm before I got a chance to document them. They are really warm, so out they come again in this chilly weather we’ve been having in London. But I did get to wear them loads, so happy to report on how they fared in user tests as well.

Scuba culottes: an experiment with Vogue 9075

Vogue 907511

Hello sewosphere, how is everyone? I myself just recovering from the final bit of the wedding celebrations, our little UK pub bash to celebrate with the friends and family that did not join us in the Caribbean. And I’m not even joking, but it was more stressful than the actual wedding… I mean, those of you who went through this, how in the world do you get to speak to all the guests? We only had 50 and I feel like I was just running from one group to another like a headless chicken… Maybe it’s just me…

Anyhow, now back to a little bit of sewing… This is the first project that I managed to finish after the ginormous wedding dress debacle, a palate cleanser if you will… I had cut it out before I left, together with about 5 other UFOs that are lingering in my drawers. I know, all that procrastination left marks in the sewing room. You might remember this little number, which I made out of an old wedding dress, using Vogue 9075, one of my favourite patterns from this year. A while ago, I had seen these culottes made by Nikki over at Beaute J’adore, and I just had this idea in my head that they would work great in scuba. I have a deep ingrained obsession with scuba and when I found this teal one, I just had to buy in bulk!

Jumping into June with Vogue 9075, upcycled from an old wedding dress

V9075 White Jersey

Hello sewing boys and girls! Here we are with a potentially incoherent post tonight, as I am suffering from intense self inflicted sleep depravation… I had a very interesting weekend, to say the least and really pushing myself to finish this post and officially join the Jump into June ladies.
