Yea, it’s another week another month , thanking God for the new month. Oh, did you watch the Super Bowl XLIX last weekend ? It was one of my best. Well since my favorite team (Vikings) didn’t make it to the playoff not to talk of the super bowl I decided to just sit down and watch it anyways. LOL I would have been on my feet watching if my team made it. 🙂
So, along the game after the halftime show by Katy Perry which was just okay compared to Bruno Mar’s awesome last year performance. I think Missy Elliot stole the show from Katy last weekend with her featured performance, loved it.
Back to my story, I decided to do a wager with some friends after the half time vouching for the Seattle – Seahawks. With 2 min to the end of the game and the Seahawks in the lead, I was all cocky already going around collecting my bills and then < **boom** > game change with a turnover throw at 1.47 min to go. What in the world. With 2 face palms I just walked right out of the room. It was too embarrassing. 🙁 So the New England – Patriots won 28-24. What a game. 🙂
I used S1355 as guide for the jumpsuit below and also reviewed it. I wish I bought more of the print.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it ? I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern ? The pattern is very simple with no difficulty at all.
Pattern alterations or any design you made ? I used the bodice of the dress in view C and the pants in View A. I added up to 5″ to the pant and also I widen the pant from the knee to the hem by adding 1.5″ to each sides of the pant on both front and back pattern.
Would you sew it again ? Yes I will sew it again in a different length. Maybe the view D and B
Would you recommend it to others? Yes I recommend it. Very good for beginners.
