Top 10 Jumpsuit Sewing Patterns
Jumpsuits have really taken off within the indie sewing world over the last few years. There are some fantastic jumpsuit sewing patterns out there to try but we thought we’d do a roundup of the most popular ones of the site. I’m sure there are a couple of patterns in here that you own already as well as some new exciting shapes to discover and make part of your autumn sewing plans.
I felt we had to start with this the Zadie Jumpsuit, this pattern has reached cult status within the sewing community and for good reason. I’m sure a lot of you have made it already and for those that haven’t now is your moment. The wrap style jumpsuit doesn’t have any fastenings and the wide cut on the leg means it’s easier to fit. There are two sleeve options so you can wear it in winter too. It’s a shape the looks good on most body types and in you don’t believe me a quick skirt through the hashtag on Instagram should fill you with inspiration. As they say the proof is in the making, and the numbers don’t lie!

The Shelby dress and romper has been another popular pattern, when I first saw the images I didn’t realise that it was a jumpsuit… some might call it the secret jumpsuit. The pattern features princess seams, a button down front and really wide legs. There are two length options so it’s perfect for all seasons.

This is probably the newest jumpsuit pattern featured and it’s the Blanca flight suit from Closet Core patterns. This boiler suit pattern comes with loads of customisable options so you can really make it your own. You can choose between a wide leg and a straight leg option that can be changed to suit your needs. There is a zip down the front, optional patch pockets on the bodice and leg. The fabric will be the really transformative choice when making this and you can see the difference between denim and linen.

The V-Neck jumpsuit from The Assembly Line is a fantastic option if you are looking for something a little looser. It’s designed to be a relaxed fit and has an optional belt if you did want it cinched in. There is a dropped crotch and a slightly tapered leg. We love this as an autumnal option.

The Yanta overalls from Helen’s Closet has been hugely popular within the sewing community. It’s a perfect option if you are newish to dressmaking as the pattern is a relaxed fit and a pretty simple construction. There is a seam up the centre front of the overalls and there are optional patch pockets on the front and back. I really love the little dart at the front and back (next to the waistline) this add shaping and can easily be adjusted if you needed to. If you need anymore encouragement then check out some amazing makes on Instagram.

The Kielo wrap dress has been a cult classic within the indie sewing world for some time and Named Clothing have just rereleased the pattern with an expanded size range as well as a new jumpsuit variation! We love the shape of this and thought it would be something you would all love too. For those who haven’t discovered this pattern yet then you are in for a treat. The dress is actually made up on a handful of patterns pieces and really simple to construct, and we are please yo say the same can be said of the jumpsuit. The pattern has a seam up the centre front and back, and a wide cut on the trousers making it easier to fit. The ties at the waist adds the shaping and can tied as you wish.

The Sirocco jumpsuit is a fantastic jersey pattern with no fastenings so you literally just pull it on. It needs to be made in a medium weight jersey with a good recovery. The pattern features a mock wrap front, pleats at the front of the pattern on the bodice and the leg and can be made in a short version too.

The jazz jumpsuit and dress e-book has to be one of the best value pattern books, there are a whopping 82 variations you can make with is pattern. A lot of the pieces are interchangeable so you really can create the outfit you like. Having made the jumpsuit version myself I really love this pattern, and the sleeve variation is lovely on this pattern..

The Vogue 9075 can be made as a dress or jumpsuit. The legs on this are really wide and you can be mistaken for wearing a dress. I even managed to get away with is as a bridesmaid’s dress. The pattern has a bodice with princess seams, cap sleeves and pleats at the waist. The only alteration I made was not to stitch down the pleats as instructed and would recommend the same if you were planning on making it.
