Pic from the rowing ball (most of the pics didn't turn out well, this is the best I've got)
The crossover is in the center, the buttons are off. I had picked up gold buttons, but couldn't find them the afternoon of the ball when I was finally sewing the buttons on.
Sorry for the wrinkles! I gave it a quick iron, but it's been sitting on my ironing board for months now, and I finally needed it to move on.
I love jumpsuits, and this was my second of many to come. I think I will live in them for the summer. I used Burdastyle Evening Jumpsuit 06/2015 #119C as my base pattern. The halter pieces had way too much fabric, you can see this problem on the photo on their website).
Here are the changes I made:
I cut the fabric on the two halter pieces down by half (probably a bit too much) as it was an evening function. It's not an outfit I'd be comfortable in during the day :) . I also changed the tie to buttons for a more formal look. I made little button loops out of the main fabric.
I also added ties, attached at both sides and wrapping around to the front they are long enough to wrap around to the back for a more practical look..
I put pockets in the sides, and moved the zipper to the centre back, because I didn't want to deal with putting in a side zipper with pockets and ties.
I underlined the waist pieces, on the cross-grain to add some stability. I lined the halter pieces, and had planned on lining the waist as well, but ran out of time.
