Jumping into spring and summer
That's enough pics son.....
Ok! Ok! One more if you insist ;-)
It's a bit big on me; I'll just take the elastic in...
So here is my big waist elastic adjustment that was made to this pattern;
~Because I added a front lining to the top it required a little bit of working to get the elastic to be smooth and hide the seams.
Threading my elastic through the top casting.
I next finished the seam edge to join the front and facing together so it could be sewn to the pants waist of the jumpsuit.
Once the waist seams are attached I trimmed the inside excessive fabric to remove some bulk from the waistline. And top stitched it flat.
I decided to top stitch the seams on both the top and bottom of the waist seam to insure it would lay flat and have less bulk. I ran into a bulking waist with the read jumpsuit I made using this same pattern. Not this time!
Finishing up stitching down waist casing but leaving an opening to thread through the elastic.
Finished interior waist band b for elastic is added.
Strapless wide leg jumpsuit
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Super easy. Since I've already made this one I just glanced at it to get my bearings with the top.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how simple and quick this pattern comes together
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I combined the side seams and took out some of the with through the hips and trimmed the enter tight seam. I also added a lining to the top front for extra coverage. Also sewed the waist elastic flat against the bodice top.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yup. I'm probably gonna make it again with a woven type of fabric. I will size it down.
Love how easy this pattern is and how quickly it comes together. It's a great pattern
