Simplicity 1158 Hack #BERNINA
by Lucinda Follow

Yup, this dress started as a jumpsuit, like the original pattern.  Once I had the shorts attached to the bodice and tried the jumpsuit on, something just wasn’t right…maybe it was the proportions of the length of the shorts to the bodice, the fit – I’m not sure.  I loved how blouse-y the bodice was, and it reminded me of a dress I made a few years ago that had a similar bodice but with a slim fitting skirt.  After a little pattern hacking and taking it at the sides, I had a skirt pattern and got the exact look I hoped for.​
