Colourful Burda Jumpsuit

Port Of Spain, T...






I instantly fell in love with the jumpsuit pattern recently posted by Burdastyle. It was not difficult to make, it fits well and it looks pretty much like the one in the picture. I think I went a bit wild with the fabric choice but I still like the overall look of it. Challenge: mattching up those zig-zags perfectly. Oh, I did a tutorial on attaching the biased binding as trim with a fabric facing. Project blogged about here

Material Notes

2 3/4 yards lightweight synthetic fabric, 3/4 "satin biased binding




Garment Type

    This is fabulous! I’ve just downloaded the pattern but don’t recognize the sizing…what measurement does the size refer to?

      Sorry for the delay. Here is the link to the size charts. The pattern is tall though but it probably will work well regardless. Can’t wait to see it!

      Thanks! Mostly I pinned the fabric before I layed the pattern on it. I matched where I layed the fabric for the top pocket pattern tand for top pants pattern before I cut.

    I only today bought the magazine but you are already wearing the outfit! Perfect choice of design and colours for you! Very, very nice.

    Very chic! Please share your technique to line up seams on such a print if you have time. My prints are always skewed a little.

    Thank you!

    It is great and I think fabric you used was also very good idea.
