Buy the Zadie Jumpsuit sewing pattern from Paper Theory Patterns. The Zadie Jumpsuit is a relaxed and easy to wear one piece that comes with the option of wide 3/4 length sleeves or sleeveless with a dropped shoulder. It wraps around the body and fastens with a tie so there is no need for buttons or a zip – making it quick and easy to sew, and quick and easy to get on and off. The legs are cut wide and skim above the ankle. There are deep slant pockets on the front, with small pleats at the waist on the front and back. The neck edge is finished with a bias binding. You will learn to make your own bias binding and apply it to the neckline. You will also learn how to create a slant trouser pocket. The rest of the techniques are standard straight stitching and hemming.

The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). Choose sizes 6 – 20 or sizes 16 – 28. What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: This pattern was designed especially for woven, medium weight fabrics like cotton and linen and would look great in fabric that has a draped quality like crepe, viscose twill or satin. It would also make up well in some heavier fabrics like drill and light weight denim. It is possible to make this in knit or stretch fabrics like jersey but the binding technique around the neck is tricky in a stretch fabric so be warned that would take the difficulty degree up a few notches.

Fabric requirements:

Option A (sleeves): 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 2.75 – 4.4 m (3 – 4.8 yd) // 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 2.25 – 3.56 m (2.46 – 3.9 yd).

Option B (sleeveless): Reduce fabric quantity by 35 cm (0.4 yd) for all sizes.

Sizing: UK 6 – 28 (approx. UK 6 – 30, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

The PDF files are separated into two size ranges (6 – 20 and 16 – 28). Both sets of files are included in your purchase. Sizes 16/18/20 overlap between the size ranges so you can still grade up or down easily if you are on the edge of a size range.

This pattern was drafted for a height of 5’7″ (170 cm) and C bust cup. There are lengthening and shortening lines included on the pattern. The pattern was sampled with models who had A, C and DD bust cups, and no fitting alterations were necessary for any of these bust cups. The model pictured is 5’10” with a 34D bust. She is wearing a size 12 with 2″ of length added to the legs at the hem. This was the only modification for her.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4/US letter print-at-home pattern (42 pages for sizes 6-20, 55 pages for sizes 16-28); A0 copy shop pattern (3 sheets for sizes 6-20, 3 sheets for sizes 16-28); US copy shop pattern (2 sheets for sizes 6-20, 3 sheets for sizes 16-28) // Layers: Yes (print-at-home only) // Projector file: No.
