Pairing the right fabric with the right pattern is an art. An art that one gets better at as you sew more garments and understand how fabrics behave.
The Cotton is light enough to show off the drape with the wide legs of the jumpsuit. The fabric also have enough structure to maintain the beautiful neckline in this pattern.
Choosing a size and modifications
I recommend choosing your size according to your bust and then grading up or down for the hips.
Looking through the size charts and the finished garment measurements, I chose to cut out a straight size 6.
One of the most common modifications that I make when sewing any bottoms is to shorten the rise. I have a short torso and also petite on top so I always have to make these adjustments to make garments fit just right.
The pattern is also drafted for someone who is 5”7″. I therefore decreased the pattern length by 3″ to fit my height.
I first shortened the rise by 1 inch and then reduced the length of the jumpsuit at the legs by 2″. I am mostly happy with how it turned out, but in retrospect, I would shorten the rise only by 0.5″ next time.
Sewing the Jumpsuit
Sewing the jumpsuit was pretty quick. There is very few pattern pieces to sew together. The neckline is finished with a facing and there are in-seam pockets.
There is also an invisible zipper on the side which makes this pattern great for beginners who want to learn new techniques.
