    Wow! Would love to see the back I have a jumpsuit I designed for a fashion show on May 22 with an open back. Here’s the pic of mine with pattern draft.

    Great job! I really wanna make a playsuit for the summer, but I’m not really sure how to draft the pattern. Any good advise? :-)

      I just kind of went at it, you can work with a basic bodice block minus the darts (although I did add small horizontal darts to the bust that serve virtually no purpose) for the front, basic sleeves and basic shorts. Just make sure the bodice will meet the shorts at the dropwaist with a little bit of overhang. I made a casing around the back side of the shorts and slid elastic through that and through the seam allowance casing in the front (since mine has an open back which unfortunately I don’t have pictures of)
      Sorry if that was confusing lol but hope it helps!
