Green Knotted Bodysuit

Anytime Burda releases a swimsuit, jumpsuit, or bodysuit, I just HAVE to make it! So when I saw this pattern in the June 2018 issue, I knew it had to be my June Mash Up!

I didn’t alter too much on the pattern, I only omitted the over/under lap for the snaps, as I hate the discomfort of the snaps more than having to entirely remove my suit. For the edges I also didn’t add any allowances as I left them raw to reduce visible panty lines on the legs. My fabric was this beautiful ribbed green jersey, and it was super soft and silky – making my bodysuit like a second skin.

Check out my tutorial posts below to see how I made it:

Part 2

For the sizing, I actually cut and sewed this bodysuit in the size 36 as my jersey was super stretchy. I usually always sew size 38, but for this suit the size smaller was perfect.

    Love it! Do you think it would be an option to move the snaps a little bit more to the front – so they’re out of the more sensitive area? Given the amounts of tea I drink, I think I really need the version with snaps haha

      Haha!! I’m sure you could to that. Or use more, smaller snaps.
