I recently purchased this jumpsuit to wear to a Hollywood party with my husband.
I thought it was flattering, fun, and that I wouldn’t be dressed like anyone else.
My husband was not into it. He said it was cute, but he liked a dress I already had better. Such a diplomat.
I acquiesced. I was going to be meeting his people after all, and there would be press there…blah, blah, blah.
So now I’m wondering if I should return it. Will I wear it somewhere else before jumpsuits are back out of style? Will I really feel comfortable wearing it, or will I be self conscious? (I did buy some Spanx to wear under it!) The fabric is pretty slinky and I am not model-thin.
By Hand London has this Holly Jumpsuit pattern.
Should I instead make this in a more forgiving fabric to satisfy my jumpsuit curiosity? Maybe in a chambray with a belt?
Look how cute this version is, made by Lizzy at Sewbusylizzy.com!
What are your thoughts? Have you or would you wear a jumpsuit? Has anyone made the Holly?
