Well Hello Keira !!!!

I could go on and on about the Keira Jumpsuit, from the Nina Ramel pattern collection, and I will  for a bit ( wink).
First of all, let me say a huge THANK YOU  to Shari Williams of  My Daily Threadz , the creator of this swanky little number. At least that's the way it made me  feel, LOL! So serious though, this jumpsuit is EVERYTHING! it is so fabulously easy to put together.
Let me start from the beginning. I love the idea of keying in your measurements and having a PDF pattern printed out specific to my own measurements. After reading earlier reviews of this pattern, I made adjustments to mine thinking that I would need the same adjustments. However, after stitching this garment together, which was suppose to be ( or can still be considered my "wearable muslin"), I ended up reversing the adjustments for an almost perfect fit.  I say almost, because when I reversed the adjustments, I lost the 2" that I added on to the length. But, hey, it is still wonderful. The length does not cancel out this greatness!
The fabric I chose to use  is a scuba knit that I believe I purchased from  fabric.com. I actually used the same fabric that I just used for my active wear challenge. It was only gonna be my test garment. But, whoa baby, I loved it so much I rocked it the surprise 80th birthday party my Mary Kay Senior Director gave to her husband.
I received so many compliments and was very proud to say that it was a Nina Ramel jumpsuit.

Modifications: 

  • Closed the neckline a bit.

  6. Oh, Oh, Oooohhh! I LOVE your version of this jumpsuit! OMGosh, that BLUE! You look so fabulous and the fit is spot on. I love that you raised the neckline, because I would have done the same thing. After seeing your version, I can't wait to give it a try when she releases the pattern again. I can totally see why you got so many compliments. That jumpsuit is on fire, girl! Oooo Weee!!!
