I have a very good feeling about this:
|Closet Case Files - Nettie Skirt and Body Suit|
Fun fact: Heather Lou, the designer of this fab pattern, lives in Montreal (on the Plateau, if her outside pics are anything to go by). Nothing screams Mtl more than a body suit. Peeps, it's the ultimate layer. And it's non-negotiably chic, as the Mtl ladies must be.
Look, I'm the original body-suit (aka body, for those of you living in the UK!) wearer. I freakin' love the long, sleek line.
Why does the body suit flatter?
- It maximizes length of waist and minimizes waist bulk.
- It creates the sense of waist curve, even on straight frames.
- It's sleek.
- It's an excellent layering piece.
- It's so disco - in the best way!
Because I have a summer's worth of projects lined up (post coming soon), I don't think I can queue this quickly, but I'm watching for all of your versions and feedback and posts. And I do imagine it's going to be a late summer weekend project for me. I can see this becoming a staple.
So, whatcha think?
