Jumpsuit repro with a slight twist

Added Aug 15, 2013

by metropolitan...

Atlanta , Georgi...






The real scenario (I don’t make this stuff up):
Client sees jumpsuit in a magazine, text’s a pic (2nd photo) to me and asks, “can you make this…exactly?”
Well here it is. I had some blue ribbed fabric on hand that was a little too short for the pant length, so I added a black horizontal stripe to make up the diff, hence the twist.

Material Notes

Poly/rayon/ spandex jersey




Garment Type


Construction and partial pattern

    Looks way better on your client than the model.

      Thanks Ellen. That’s my client in the photo, but I’ll pass on the compliment.

    It’s great! I want to make something like this! It will be a nice idea for refashioning as well and I have some pants very tight!
