Summer Jumpsuit with Alex of My Sew Bliss - Raspberry Creek Fabrics

Hi friends! This is Alex from My Sew Bliss! I’m so excited to share my bright and comfortable jumpsuit with you all today! I love color and getting dressed up but that can only be done so much while being at home with my two young boys. Usually the only “dressing up” I do is reserved for Sunday church. Most days I’m in leggings and a T-shirt or jeans and a simple top, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love making and wearing fun outfits when I can!

In early March I was able to attend one of my favorite blogging conferences, Alt Summit. Not only is this such a great place to learn and make new friends but I also find it to be the perfect time to make all the fun outfits I dream of wearing but have no reason to make. I love the trend of jumpsuits but rarely find myself wanting to wear one to the grocery store, so Alt Summit was the perfect time for me jump on the trend.

Raspberry Creek Fabrics always has an amazing collection of fabrics to help me make all my fashion wishes come true and this jumpsuit was no difference. I knew I wanted something light weight and with good drape but wasn’t sure on anything else. I usually gravitate towards print but when I saw this coral rayon challis I knew it was the perfect statement fabric without being too over the top!

I chose to use the collaboration pattern between Chalk and Notch and Ensemble Patterns for the Orchid dress and Parasol trouser patterns. I had seen this pattern a lot on social media and was looking for the perfect occasion to make it and wear it. Alt Summit was definitely the perfect occasion for this and it was so fun to wear from class to class. The light weight rayon challis was a dream for the warm sunshine and kept me so comfortable all day long, it felt like I was wearing pajamas most of the time!

I’ll be wearing this jumpsuit all summer long and sharing lots more over on my blog, My Sew Bliss. I hope you will stop by, happy sewing friends!

I think we both know that when it comes to adorable fabrics for kiddos, Raspberry Creek Fabrics is beyond compare. It’s totally easy to make coordinating pieces or capsule wardrobes, their prints are AH-dorable, and the CLUB cotton jersey and French terry are great bases for kiddos. I think sewing for the kids in your life is absolutely lovely — I try to do it as often as I can. But here are a few reasons why you might consider sewing for yourself and with RCF fabrics, too. I’m also including one of my favorite “grown-up” makes that shows that RCF really does have fabric options for everyone, kids and adults alike.
