Sew and Tell: Jumpsuit

First off, I apologize for these bad pictures. Hubby and I switched rooms with the boys and am struggling to find a new good spot to take my pics. Please make believe the pile on the floor is not there.  

Anyway...Here's a little sew and tell. This is a jumpsuit I made two weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I love jumpsuits because, like I said in one of my facebook statuses, they are like super-hero, must have attire for on-the-go moms like myself. Especially an -on the go-mom of an extremely active sensory needy child. When I am out with my little one, you don't know how many times I have to swing him, bend down to pick him up, hold him, etc. It's so good to know that I have a one piece garment preventing anyone from seeing my undies as I bend or my boobies as I lean forward (I always wear a camisole under anything that might pose a challenge like a criss-cross or  v-neck.  

Here is it without any accessories. 

Here, it's paired with necklace, bracelet and belt. 

I used a compilation of two patterns, the top is from McCalls 6083 and the bottom is Simplicity 2187.

It's made from wool jersey which a friend of mine gave me. It's really warm. I intended to add sleeves but didn't have enough fabric

Do you like jumpsuits? Let me know what you think.
