Another Body

Here's another version of the Hot Patterns Bodysuit. This one is the V neck version. I like this shape better on me, but found the "V" neck pulls a bit at the center - it's a mock wrap, and where the two pieces join, there is some wearing strain. It hasn't stopped me from wearing this, however.

I tell myself, "Well, it's no worse than a lot of ready to wear". And because I made it, the sleeves are long enough, unlike most ready-to-wear. (Did I mention that I had to lengthen the sleeves three inches? Well, I did. And that, by the way, is why I started sewing back in the 1980s - to get clothing that had sleeves and legs long enough!)

You have really been on a roll! I am sure that these are getting a workout in your wardrobe and make dressing in the morning easier.

What a great looking body suit! I've never used Hot Patterns, but now I'm thinking it's time. Your suits are inspiring and look so comfortable.
