Do you remember this Polyvore set I created?
I sold myself on the absolute necessity for a simple black jumpsuit in my wardrobe. Curse you Polyvore!
This black jumpsuit is made out of stretch polyester and weighs quite a bit. A cotton jersey would have been a much better choice for the fabric. Beggars and non-sewers can’t be choosers though so I bought it anyhow (on sale).
I altered this jumpsuit by taking it in drastically on the top and then ruching the shoulders a bit to open up the neckline.
You can see in these shots the first time I wore it and styled it with the brown how the neckline was too closed for my tastes. It made me look shorter.
Finally I styled it like this…
I think we have a winner.
It can only be warn on cooler days though and when I don’t need to move too fast, otherwise this kimono catches on everything within a three foot radius.
What do you think about the idea of a black jumpsuit? Could you see yourself wearing one?
