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.

Final thoughts: This pattern is worth every second put in it to create. The instructions were very easy to follow. I will definitely make this again, at least one more time.
