The Baja Blue Single-Shoulder Stretch Crepe Jumpsuit
When you find a great fabric you love, you buy it multiple times! That’s what I did with this amazing Theory Baja Blue Stretch Crepe, which is unfortunately sold out. I bought this fabric last year and made this great dress and it immediately sold out then. If Mood restocks this one, you should grab it. But until then, here are some selections that I think would be great (Ralph Lauren Evening Blue Stretch Crepe, Deep Wisteria Stretch Polyester Crepe and Italian Stretch Polyester Crepe Fabric).
It’s no secret that I love a jumpsuit. And I always like for my fabric to have some “give” when I create one. This is McCall’s 7632.
I cut the bodice in a size 12, grading to a 14 at the waist. I also added an inch to the length. The bodice is self-lined and that’s a necessity because of the way it ties at the shoulder.
If I’d gone with another view, I could’ve used lining fabric and just made sure to underline really well.
I cut the pants in a size 14 and graded to a 16 at the hip. I added an inch to the crotch length. I liked the length of the pants from the envelope. When ever I wear culottes, I like for them to be the length of a midi skirt/dress.
This fabric cuts, sews and presses so well, not to mention how comfortable it. I love when a woven feels like a jersey, but with a more polished look. So this one is another winner!
