Jumpsuit Pattern-Stein

There was a jumpsuit, on ebay, that I really liked - but didn't want to buy it knowing I could make it. In order to do that, I had to Frankenstein two patterns together, which I like to call Pattern-stein. 

For this specific pattern-stein, I collaborated a children's harem pants pattern, by Burda, with a McCall's women's dress pattern. I have used the pants pattern before, on Lil' Miss, here

We went to the Simi Valley Days Fair. I'm gonna be honest. I really don't like the fair. The rides terrify me, like they are going to fall apart. The food, well, I can't even eat it so that doesn't matter. Everything just seems grimy. But, Lil' Miss wanted to go and ride the Ferris wheel. And I figured I could get some colorful pictures. $30 later, two birds with one stone. 

One thing you can count on in Simi Valley, is that there will always be a breeze. ALWAYS. An unnecessary breeze. My hair is always in my face. 

I was trying to hide my extra baby weight with this suit, but maybe it actually makes me look wider. Lame. Oh, well, it's comfy. And I made exactly what I wanted.

You look great! I don't know what you're talking about when you mention baby weight. I don't see any!
