Yes, Julie was skin and bones so that part of my reality didn't cloud my sewing judgement.
This fabric is another piece that I picked up from Pitt Trading last year. I liked the colours in this knit so it was always going to be a challenge to match the print, keep the style simple without becoming a clown suit.
I've used a thick black elastic piece to join the top to the skirt. This is definitely going to be a day dress when we on holidays in the tropics. The gathers at the top of the jumpsuit were easier for me to pleat, so I did 9 pleats per side. You can't tell when you look closely, but it made the shoulder line sit nicely.
