When I saw this fabric I just had to have it! I purchased it from When I look at fabric, I automatically begin thinking about what I can make with it. This particular fabric is stretchy and very colorful. It reminds me of the tropics and a nice vacation so I named my creation "Tropicana". I wanted something comfortable and easy to make so I freestyled this jumpsuit. The materials used were 2 yards of fabric, a sewing, machine, clips (for clipping the pieces together), elastic, a rotary cutter, and a serger. 

For the top, I took my chest measurements and doubled it. I created one big rectangle for that piece. The bottoms were created by tracing a pair of my favorite skinny jeans. Instead of using elastic for the cuffs, I measured my ankles and cut two strips of the scrap fabric to insert in the ankles of the pants. I plan to add pockets to the next one that I make. I wore nude sandals and a gold necklace for the final photo.

I'd love to hear from you! What are your thoughts? How would you dress up this jumper?
