Ready for the tutorial on how to make this awesome Jumpsuit?? Scroll through the beautiful inspiration pics and then get fabric shopping!
My favorite places to get knit is Girl Charlee
and Fabric.com. I made the first jumpsuit from this this beautiful floral knit that is no longer available anywhere. AHH. But, I found this one that’s pretty similar
🙂 It’s a ponte de roma, which is a heavier knit. The first time I made it I followed this tutorial
Then, I had to make another one. Of course, right? This one I decided to make the arm holes smaller, keep the neckline rounded, and size it down a size to XS. I also connected them differently. The knit I used was a thin cotton knit and it is absolutely perfect for summer.
Kate’s mashup had you sew a casing for the waistband and I decided to sew the my favorite 2″ knit elastic into the waistband so there was no chance of slippage. This one fits PERFECTLY. I wanted to show you how to style it fancy AND casual so you can really see how versatile this jumpsuit is.
If you can believe, I’ve sold both jumpsuits off of me AND started making them for my friends. Emily from Lovely Deseret
picked a beautiful pink floral for hers:
