I get Rachel Zoe’s daily email. I can never afford any of her suggested fashion items but it can be inspirational for sewing. She also lists a parallel item for less $$. The other day she featured a silk jumpsuit by Derek Lam.
I love the colour and the wide-leg trousers. Would I pay $3750 for it? Umm, no. The parallel garment is from Victoria’s Secret and is $88.
It reminded me of Vogue’s jumpsuit pattern, Vogue 1249.
I wasn’t 100% sure about it until I saw Erica B’s version. Hawt, right? Wowza! It looks so good with her skintone. Here are some other jumpsuits.
The last one, with skirt and then without, is Stella McCartney and is suggested for your wedding day. Oh, yes it is.
Anyway, I’m tempted to try a jumpsuit on somewhere first, before I go to the effort of making one and then hating it. Have you tried this look? Or it’s sister, the romper?
