Oh guys! What can I say about this pattern? Everything you ever wanted from a garment it's combined in this pattern! It's chic, it's comfortable, it's flattering, it's just THE ULTIMATE summer garment! This is Closet Case Files newest release, named after this inspiring lady!
The Sallie Jumpsuit & Maxi-dress is a super comfortable and easy to make sewing pattern. Heather's inspiration came from the 70's fashion, in particular the swinging, sexy, Studio 54 Halston and Yves St. Laurent years. With Bianca Jagger in mind she designed a modern take on the jumpsuit, devastatingly chic and easy to wear! Designed for knits, it features no closure which makes it a breeze to slip in and out of. The pattern comes with two top variations, a v-neck, kimono sleeve tee or a strappy tank, and three bottom variations, wide leg pants, culottes or a maxi skirt! Did I mention it also features pockets? What else could you wish for?
I just fell really hard for this pattern! It was around midnight and I was chilling in my living room ready to call it a night, when I got the email for Sallie's release! It was love at first sight! I instantly bought the pattern and a fabric shop trip was on my to do list the next day!
I cut the kimono sleeve tee with wide leg pants variations in a size 10 without any modifications and I couldn't be happier with the fit of this! I used a black bamboo knit and 1 cm elastic for the waist. The pattern is a breeze to put together. It took me an afternoon to construct this and I wore it the same night!
What I love about this pattern is how easily you can dress it up or down. Here I paired it with my Stan Smiths for a casual look, but I could as easy see this paired with heels for a night out! Check out Heather's post with inspiration on how to style your Sallie! I can see many more variations on Sallie coming! Stay tuned!
