McCall’s 7167 – Jumpsuit Review

I have a love-hate relationship with Jumpsuits. This pattern has been on my to do list for a very long time. Jumpsuits don’t always look good on me, but this one does and I love it! This is Mc Calls 7167 view D. I cut a size 6 for the bodice and a size 10 for the bottom. I added 1.5 inches to the back crotch depth, to avoid the evil wedgie. I also removed 2 inches from the length so I can wear it with flats or sandals.

The pattern comes together quite easy. The bodice is fully lined including the sleeves. I did a lot of hand sewing so it took me longer than I expected. The criss-cross back is really cute but I opted for view D because I wanted to wear it to church. Unfortunately, it didn’t make it out of my bedroom, because it was too cold and I didn’t want to wear a coat. DSC_0234
