#McCalls 7099

So I “jumped” on the jumpsuit bandwagon, LOL!  This is a giant leap outside of my comfort zone.  I’m pretty sure that the last time I wore jumpsuits was in Kindergarten, LOL.

I didn’t get a decent back view shot, the dog kept needing attention. 

Thinking about making a jumpsuit?  Try this pattern!  It’s not difficult…at all.  The inseam pockets are great.  I cut my usual size 12, made no adjustments.  The fabric is some sort of poly jersey from Joann, and it’s hot and it doesn’t breathe.  When I attached the neck band, I started at the center back and sewed down each side while stretching it slightly.  This made the band about 3/4” longer at the bottom front which I later cut off.  It’s keeping closed pretty well, even without the bust snap (I’ve not sewn it in yet).  I’m pondering a different waistband treatment.  Instructions call for a simple elastic casing, but I’m thinking maybe a drawstring of some sort for the next piece.  Try this in a nice silk jersey, or maybe a rayon blend.  If you use a woven, make sure you widen the pants at the bottom so you can pull these over your foot.  They’re quite narrow, as you can see.  Feeling the disco vibe!

  1. Fabulous! Love the colour. Amazing how comfy these jumpsuits are, isn’t it?

  2. That looks great! I had to laugh about “last time in kindergarten” – just my thoughts when I made mine up. But I’m a lot happier with the whole concept of jumpsuits than I thought I would be. I bet you are going to get a lot of wear out of yours, at least when it’s cool enough.

  3. There’s a linkup party over at Said & Done for #jumpingintojune. Hope you’ll join in!
