M6083 Grey Black Jumper

I made this jumper using a cotton fabric from the Michael Levine bulk store and McCalls pattern M6083, view D. I made a few adjustments along the way. First off, because I'm rather tall with a long torso, so I added 2 5/8 inch to the length of the bodice and 2 3/8 inch to the length of the shorts (not to the hem). It was a little tricky to get the waist situated in the right place but I fortunately had cut enough extra length to make it work.

The other big change I made from the pattern was I added a zipper at the side waist. This jumper is not easy to put on and the zipper really helps give extra wiggle room. Overall, it was really easy to make and came together quickly. I really like the pockets in the front.
