De manière globale, le montage du patron est facile mais ce modèle nécessite une minutie de tous les instants même si le tutoriel est bien détaillé tant en explications et schémas. J’ai fait quelques pauses entre chaque étape afin de me garder des plages de concentration maximum ;)))) Alterner des pièces techniques avec des pièces plus basiques c’est la garantie de prendre du plaisir même sur les modèles les plus compliqués ;)))
Donc après plusieurs tentatives, je me suis limitée à la parmenture col devant et réalisé des ourlets sur le dos et les manches.
Astuce : J’ai préféré utiliser un élastique de 3 cm de largeur au bout duquel j’ai cousu 10 cm de biais afin de créer des liens ajustables à la taille.
After making my first Delphi Alexandria jumpsuit based on two « favorite » patterns by Named, I found that the structure of the jumpsuit by La Maison Victor was interesting to work and well cut through the pockets and back yoke.
I chose this silky crepe viscose staple fiber for its printed Flowers by Bennytex (I love I took it as red) and for its ideal fluidity for the pattern ;)))

It is true that I use quite a few patterns from La Maison Victor but it must be said that the latest models have me interested for their cuts, their modernity and especially some offer several options to keep or not. This last point I liked so I chose to make the back in one piece because the gathers and zip were too over print. Moreover, the « Mix up » principle speaks to me because it is the opportunity to combine 2 patterns and get a different model, that I made with Delphi Alexandria jumsuit.
Overall, mounting the pattern is easy, but this model requires meticulous at all times even if the tutorial is well detailed in both explanations and diagrams. I did some pauses between each step to keep me maximum concentration ranges;)))) Alternate technical parts with more basic pieces is guaranteed to take pleasure even on the most complicated models;) ))
The combination of top and pants needs to be accurate so that the seam of the trousers corresponds with zip top opening;)))
Another important step: after making the tunnel, tube in which I inserted the elastic of 3cm wide, it is essential to experiment so that it is well positioned and bent at the waist.
Last step that I found most challenging is laying facings front / back of the necks indeed before corresponded to reverse back. So after several attempts, I limited to the front collar and cuffs made on the back and sleeves.
Final stage: the collar, I preferred to use one hook (instead of buttons) to secure the top of the neck and over the zipper.
In conclusion, this jumpsuit is well cut and offers many options. Besides as you may have noticed, I have chosen other for ease of movement … This is the advantage of « Do it yourself »;)))))
Tip: I preferred to use an elastic 3 cm in width at which I sewed 10 cm diagonally to create adjustable bias at the waist.
