DC Nights: Ankara Jumpsuit

What I Wore: Ankara Jumpsuit 
McCall's Pattern 6969

Hi Everyone! I wanted to quickly give a review about this fabulous ankara jumpsuit I made. I actually made it about a week or two ago but didn't have anywhere to wear it to, until this weekend. Ola "#thebae" and I went to DC to celebrate one of my friends' birthday. After the birthday dinner, at SEI, Ola and I decided to take a stroll at the National Mall. I love walking at the National Mall at night, it's pretty quiet and peaceful. My friends and I used to hang out there a lot when I lived in NoVA. So I was super excited to share that experience with Ola.

Ok back to the jumpsuit.. It is semi-fitted with a front button closure. It has elastic at the waist and lower edge. I cut out a size XS of view C. It was pretty easy to make and the directions were pretty straight forward. My favorite part of the jumpsuit was having the elastic at the hem of the pants. It made the whole outfit look super hip. 

Fabric Used: Ankara

Pattern Alteration: I didn't change anything on the pattern, but after I put on the jumpsuit, I didn't like the look with the top button closed. So I opened it and fold both sides over to make a lapel. the way, I made my jumpsuit using the Juki Excite HZL-G210
