how to sew… the jumpsuit #119 of burda 6/15: pattern

IMG_0714Heyhey,

I noticed lots of bloggers talk about something with jumpsuits in june, so this project really seems to be fitting. This week starting with the pattern, next week I will do the cutting.  I already can’t wait to wear it, also because I will use a nice fabric I designed myself…

 

IMG_0752 I started with copying out the pattern and adding seam allowance. I usually use 1cm seam allowance, but since the sides of the top-parts are open edges in the end, its more like a hem, so I did 1.5cm. Same with that little facing piece for the top corner of the triangle

IMG_0753the pattern requires a seam in the centre front, which I do not like, and since the back has a side parts I decided to do a middle part and 2 side parts in the front instead

IMG_0754I started by drawing a straight line for the centre front

IMG_0755then I did draw a line in the middle of the part

IMG_0756then took the mm from the centre front split them in 2 and drew them next to the new line

IMG_0757for now I did add seam allowance all around, besides the centre front which will be cut in fold… I get back to this later

IMG_0758because I going to cut the middle part of the front in fold I wanted to do the same with the back, so I straightened the centre back then added seam allowance all around, but not to the centre back

IMG_0759when I cut the front parts from the paper, I cut the new seam as well

IMG_0761then taped the parts onto another paper and added seam allowance

IMG_0763the top parts

IMG_0765the pant parts where only printed with the top parts on the pattern sheet, with measurements how much longer each line should get. I already added 2 cm to that numbers, even though this is a tall size, the normal measurement would not be long enough for high heels.

IMG_0766then I added seam allowance and 8cm hem allowance, just in case, so I could make it even longer if needed

IMG_0767the finished pant parts with the pockets.

I am so looking forward to sewing this… I just cant wait. If you have any questions about the pattern or my changes to it, do not hesitate to ask!

keep sewing and smiling

      • It’s was a combination…Téresa from Navy Blue Threads said she hadn’t never made one and then Ali from Thimberlina got on board and told me and next thing Chris had made us a badge and everything!!! It’s been good fun, so make sure you add yours!! 😉

      • what a great story, I just love it when people work together. I will definitely go over there and check it out and hope I get mine finished within June, since I split it up into tutorials it sometimes takes a little longer to finish.

  2. I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO CUT JUMPSUITS PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW TO TAKE MEASURMENT AND OF WHICH PARTS AND HOW CAN WEAR WITHOUT ZIP. PLEASE HELP ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.ESPECILLY FROM HIP AND FRONT FITTING HOW I CAN AND HOW MUCH IS NEEDED HOW MUCH CLOTH REQUIRED .THANKYOU

    • Do you mean, you want to construct your own pattern for a jumpsuit? In that case you need to construct a top and a pant, add a few cm in between for movement.
      Besides the usual measurements like bust, waist and hip, for jumpsuits you need the U-measurement, which is from the waist centre front over your crotch to the waist centre back.
      There are only 2 ways to make a jumpsuit without a zipper, first: the top has to be loose and wide enough to go over the hips, second: you use a stretch fabric.
      If you measure from your shoulder to your wished length you have your needed fabric if the jumpsuit is sleeveless and your small enough or the fabric wide enough. If the fabric is not that wide, you should take that twice, plus 0.5 metres for sleeves.
      I hope I could help a little, write back if you have another question.
