Thanks Marcelo Jacob!!

In order to thank and honor the great fashion designer Marcelo Jacob who shared with us his 60's Jumpsuit Pattern I decided it would be nice to make a challenge showing what you come up with using his basic pattern. It's so easy and fashionable I immediatly looked for the right material and worked all day on it. The pattern fits Barbie's body perfectly well. For Fashion Royalty dolls you might need to lower the pants crutch because FR's torso tends to be a bit longer, you might need to lenghten the pants about 1 inch, too. I modified the pattern on the neckline and made bigger hems to make it more 70's style. Hope you like it and join the challenge to thank Marcelo Jacob for this kind gift.

    Hey Nilsa! I think you did a wonderful job. Marcelo's pattern turned out to be timeless. It can be 60's, 70's, 80's or even modern. I loved the accesories!!!

    Here is my creation. Not happy with the fabric . I wanted one with small print but didn't have any in my stack so this was the one that I used.

    Backdrop is the front of the barbie Surprise House.

     

    My outfit doesn't do justice to the pattern, sorry Marcelo, but...the doll now matches the house, lol.

  • Heres another view of the dolls, with out the design board.  This was so much fun! Thanks so much for the lovely pattern, Marcelo!

  • Loved the jumpsuit so much I did it twice: Once in a fun pink cotton print,  and once in a  purple silk crepe.  I like the Cotton print better.  I used a nice quilters' cotton that I had in my "stash."  The silk crepe was a leftover scrap from a theater costume I had done years and years ago. (I have a hard time throwing things out!) That fabric was difficult to work with, it wanted to crawl, and resulted in a wonky neckline.  I love the drape of it though.
