New York, New Yo...
A jumpsuit is an entire outfit-in-one and is full of room for one’s own interpretation. We created our own variation of a burda style magazine jumpsuit pattern and altered it to our liking by eliminating the cuffs and gathers at the ankle and widened the legs for a more free-spirited look.
This design calls for a 2-way stretch fabric so we went with a comparable peach hued silk knit. There are no closures to insert but a tie at the waist, so slipping into this outfit is as easy as pie. Which look do you prefer, cinched and gathered at the ankle or a flowing bell bottom?
150 cm (59 in) wide stretch jersey: 2.25 – 2.25 – 2.25 – 2.30 – 2.40 m (2 5/8 yds).
Vilene/Pellon Bias Tape. Elastic, 1 cm (3/8 in) wide: 0.70 – 0.75 – 0.80 – 0.85 – 0.90 m (7/8 – 7/8 – 7/8 – 1 – 1 yd).
