Forty ’til 40 //Simplicity 8635

Hey Family….It’s the beginning of June and officially summer time!!  Even though in South Florida it always seems like it’s summer time. Here is look #9 of 40 of my favorite looks.  I  absolutely love a great jumpsuit and this one is on the top of my list….

When I saw this pattern, I knew it was a MUST HAVE in my wardrobe. It’s perfect for the Ft Lauderdale heat! I made view C and added 3 inches in length to the hem.



I used this amazing mustard floral jersey knit from LA Finch Fabrics. The fabric is so soft to the skin it’s unbelievable. I love the way it drapes and flows.  I knew this fabric was a winner when my 16 year old daughter said “Mom, you made that?” I said yes.  She said “Ohhh YESSSS!!! Please make me one just like that…with the same fabric!!”


Now, do you see those pockets? OMG…I love pockets. Honestly, I usually don’t put anything in my pockets, but to know that they are there is satisfying.


The open back string detail sold me on this jumpsuit. I can adjust it as loose or tight as I want.



As much as I love the open back, I knew I couldn’t wear a bra with it.  So I added bra cups to my jumpsuit.  Not only does it give me the lift I wish I had naturally, but I don’t have to wear a bra and that’s ALWAYS a plus in my eyes…lol

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did. I can’t wait to see you again.


Much love and many blessings!

  1. Tisa, I am head over hills for this look! Just blew me AWAY! Then to read about the details just made it so much better. Pockets!!! YEEESSS!!! You added bra cups??? Okay, now I can make this, because the bra issue is real. LOL! Love the length. You did a fabulous job and it looks so amazing on you. Great fit!


  2. First of all, the fabric drew me in. But, I love this jumpsuit for the same reasons you do, 1. It’s a jumpsuit; 2. It strings up the back (very sexy); 3. It has pockets, and 4. I LOVE the fact you added bra cups, that sealed the deal for me.
    Let me just say, I was floored when you said your fabric is a jersey knit…who knew! That’d even more special.
    I absolutely looooove it, and I want one!
    You look fantastic as always.
    Oh, also, I noticed you said you added a fw inches to the length. How tall are you? I normally have to add length to my pants as well. I’m 5’7.5 ( gotta get that half in there) LOL!


    1. Thank you Alethia…I appreciate you so much!! I see you love jumpsuits just as much as I do…lol Yes, I usually always have to add length to my pants. The last time I checked I’m 5’7 in height, but I believe I’m 5’7 1/2 as well…lol


  3. Wow. Your jumpsuit looks so good. I love the fabric, and the back of the jumpsuit really is a nice surprise. Great job.
