thanks to Amanda of Sew Deputy – Dressmaking I learned that the thing about jumpsuits and June is #jumpintojune. Which sounds like a wonderful idea, I will definitely check back to see the other great jumpsuits that get sewn. If I finish this one still in June I will also take part… so lets see.
So anyway, if you just joining now, I blogged about this pattern here. The fabric I am using is one of my own designs printed on spoonflowers basic combed cotton, 4 yards of it, because its only 42” wide. You can order your own here, I also have it in other color options.
I started cutting the front parts, since the stripes are not that wide apart from each other, I only tried to match it in the centre front and back, so I would not make cutting more difficult then necessary.
after I cut the waist parts, that I matched up with the lines
and I cut them from fusible interlining, I used Vliselina G405
I cut each part in at the seam allowance of the top, so I would always be sure, which way I need to sew them together later and do not turn one upside down by mistake then I ironed the fusible interlining on, sadly I did not take a picture where you could see it then I cut the top parts and cut into the seam allowance at the markings
the waist part will be lined with the fabric to give it more stability, but it wont be seen, so I decided no need to match up the lines and just cut it the way it would fit on the fabric
then I cut the back part of the pants, as said above only matching up the centre back.
I just had to take a picture of my fabric 😉
to copy the darts on the fabric I used carbon paper, folded in the middle, with the coloring side outsidethen I placed in between both layers, which worked since my wrong sides are facing each other
then I took one of those pointy wheels and rolled it over the darts. Does anyone know what those pointy wheel things are called in english?
looks like this then I did the same with the front pant part
last I cut the pockets, not caring about the grain line
I was just trying to save as much fabric as possible, because I would love to make a fitting hat 😉my jumpsuit in pieces
