I actually made this jumpsuit months ago to wear to the cocktail party/fashion show portion of the annual Mimi G sewing conference this year. i bought the fabric specifically for this even longer ago than that because I thought it would be a great dress up option.
This jumpsuit went together so quickly and I can definitely see myself making it again. It’s definitely a good one to try for those a bit apprehensive about the jumpsuit. I used an ITY for this version but it can also easily be made using a ponte or double knit.
Pattern Description: MISSES’ ROMPER AND JUMPSUITS: Loose-fitting romper and jumpsuits have raised neckline, mock wrap, gathered, blouson bodice, front band extending to back neckline, elasticized waist, and side pockets. B, C and D: tapered.
Pattern Sizing: Combinations: A5(6-8-10-12-14), E5(14-16-18-20-22)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Definitely!
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions for this one are pretty straight forward and simple to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the style and fit of the pattern and there are sleeveless and short options as well. I also like that the instructions include a snap for the cross over top. I often add one to this style to keep the top from flopping open but it’s nice that they included it in the pattern instructions for newbies.
Fabric Used: ITY Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made no design changes or alterations
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? There are no current plans but I could see myself making this again.
Conclusion: A great, on trend pattern, easy and great for beginners.
