Hello creative minds! I’m Kristin from Alyssa K Fashion. You can follow me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/alyssak.fashion.
I wanted to create a fun outfit for upcoming holiday celebrations. It needed to be comfortable, sexy, and could hide my food baby after devouring everything I could (come on, I know I’m not the only one!). I decided to make a jumpsuit mashing the Below Zero and Campfire pants. Then, I added the Tie Me Up Belt for a little more glamour.
Purchase your patterns at www.georgeandgingerpatterns.com/?aff=121 (this is an affiliate link. It won’t cost you extra to use and I earn a commission). In addition to the supplies listed in the patterns I used ¾ inch wide elastic.
Gold fabric is faux sequin knit from fabric.com (https://www.fabric.com/buy/0659226/telio-repetto-faux-sequin-stretch-knit-gold-black)
Black fabric is stretch crepe from Joann (https://www.joann.com/stretch-crepe-knit-fabric--black-solid/15515133.html).
Faux croc vinyl is from Hobby Lobby (similar: https://www.hobbylobby.com/Clearance/Clearance---Fabric-Sewing/Clearance---Home-Decor-Fabric-Trims/Mocha-Croc-Fabric/p/80639934)
Below Zero Top – I chopped the sleeve to make it ¾ length. No other mods.
Campfire Pants – no mods.
Tie Me Up Belt – no mods.
Note: because I sized up the top my jumpsuit did not require a zipper. Make sure you’re using fabric with the recommended amount of stretch, and you may be able to avoid adding a zipper, too. I recommend making a muslin if you are not sure.
Measure your natural waist (approximately 2 inches above your belly button), then subtract 1 inch. This is the length of elastic you will cut.
