Top 10 Jumpsuits to Sew for Spring
Jumpsuits have secured their place in many makers’ wardrobes as they are a rather clever garment to own. A jumpsuit is an entire outfit.

We hope you find your pattern match and join the jumpsuit brigade!

If you are fairly new to sewing and fancy sewing your own jumpsuit, the Friday Pattern Company Avenir Jumpsuit is an excellent choice. With billowy sleeves and wide legs, it’s almost as comfortable as pyjamas… that looks great worn out to dinner!

I made one for Christmas Day and I can vouch that it was super comfy, but I felt dressed up enough for the occasion!
