I finally finished my playsuit, just in time for the end of summer! I used McCall’s 6331 I actually wanted to make a matching skirt to make it a vintage inspired playsuit ensemble. I switched out the zipper closure in the pattern for bound buttonholes.
The blue and white polka dot fabric was super shear so I underlined the whole thing with lightweight white cotton. the bodice is additionally lined with a solid blue cotton that matches the polka dots, causing the overturned pieces on the bodice to contrast.
I think I can still wear my playsuit as long as it is still warm out (which it is).
