Diva Behavior: Plus Size DIY Jacket Dress




I told you guys that I have been sewing up a storm didn't I? Between work, school and family time, you can find me in my sewing studio, hunched down over my cutting table or my Juki (which I am so delighted with!)

This DIY project was for a wrap dress but after sewing, I decided that I prefer it as a jacket. Which is a win win for me because i get to multitask this piece.

I used Vogue patterns V8992 for this jacket and I made absolutely no alterations. I made it exactly as directed and i cut a size 24. Looking back, I should have cut a 22 for a more fitted look but I also kinda like how this came out. 

My bodycon midi dress was also a self drafted DIY which I made using a stretch matte jersey which I lined with the same fabric for some cellulite support and I absolutely love! The fit is as perfect as I always wanted my bodycon dresses to fit. 

Since sewing is a time consuming task, I always tend to stay away from basics that I can just easily buy, but some basics are so worth the effort.
