Low Back Olive Sewalong - Part 1 - Prep Work & Darts

Low Back Olive Sewalong - Part 1 - Prep Work & Darts

I am so happy to have been able to re-vamp the Olive Jumpsuit over these past few months. It was a closet favorite of mine last year, and I am so excited to be able to sew along with you as you create your very own Olive Jumpsuit (or Romper)!

For this sewalong, I'll be doing the following:

1) I will be doing it over the course of 6-7 days (depending on which version we are tackling), releasing one new part per day. That way, none of us feels super rushed...

Bra Friendly Olive Sewalong - Part 5 - Attaching the Optional Waist Ties

Alright, so we have gotten out bodice all put together. We have attached it to our pants (or shorts!) and can see the end of the tunnel for this project! We are nearly there- YAY!

Today, we are going to work on attaching our tie casings and threading our waist ties through them. Yet another step closer to achieving this wardrobe staple! Of course, you totally have the option to omit the tie casing if you'd like. The Olive can be super cute in that oversized-sort-of-fashion. Kind of like how I styled mine below (I just didn't tighten my ties!)
