jumpsuit pattern

jumpsuit sewing pattern, Simplicity 7619You know you are adding a little awesomeness to your day when you finally get to use this pattern. I don’t have the original outer package with the colored picture because my friend Leann laminated it and made it into a journal, (and sold it at a craft fair somewhere) but she was clever enough to save all the original (and in this case uncut) patterns from the books she made and give them to me- yeah!
I’ve had my eye on this pattern in particular for years now. How could I possibly incorporate a jumpsuit into my life? When my 10 year old said he wanted to be a clown I knew right away where to look.

silk scarvesIn the spirit of frugal costuming we decided to use a bag full of fancy scarves my mother-in-law gave to me instead of the Salvation Army (thank you) to make up the costume. It’s turning out great, and since this clown in particular knows how to ride a unicycle and is learning to juggle as we speak- I think it’s going to be a hit.
Can you say part-time job- 10 year old clown for hire: birthday parties, social events or family reunions perhaps?!  Look at the finished costume here or here for all the kid costumes this year.
