Anitra jumpsuit pattern created by Erin Shields of Style Sew Me. I recently completed the blog tour for the Keira jumpsuit created by Shari Williams of My Daily Threadz. That went over really well. S0, I thought, why not. I love supporting other's endeavors. But, I must say, this pattern did give me pause when I first saw it. I thought,"what have I gotten myself into". I never imagined myself wearing anything harem-like. What's the old adage, "Don't knock it until you try it". "Well, what the hay, let's do this", I said to self. So, me and self did it. I knew right off what fabric I wanted to use. It's a beautifully printed jersey knit that I received from one of my wonderful sew sisters, Michelle Simmons. She gifted it to me back in February when two more of my wonderful sew sisters organized a "Gift to Alethia" campaign to show their appreciation for me. Every time I think about the all the gracious acts of kindness I receive, it makes my heart all warm and fuzzy (sniff-sniff). I need to do a blog post about that. Hmmm, why haven't I already? ( Scratches head)
As for sizing, like any other pattern, there is a sizing chart. OAN, let me not forget to mention that this pattern is sized from XS to 3 XL. So, may can wear this cool and comfy jumpsuit. My sizes were all over the place, medium for the top and large for the waist and hips. I decided to make the jumpsuit in the sizes dictated rather than trying to make adjustments oustside of the ones I mentioned earlier. I doing so, once I finished the jumpsuit I found that there was still a lot of room both top and bottom. It runs big. I think the small would actually be perfect.
As I said earlier, I never would have imagined myself in anything harem-like. But, I think it's rather cute. I think I will LOVE it with the right fit.
The Anitra jumpsuit can be dressed up or down. Check out the many versions of this from the others on this blog tour.
Thank you Erin for inviting me to join the tour! Much success on the sell of this pattern.
To the rest of the ladies of the our, you all look fabulous!!!
Until; next time, remember, you are blessed to be a blessing!
Love you to life,
