Summer wrap playsuit

The Sierra jumpsuit also comes with the option to make it in a playsuit which is allowing me to continue my jumpsuit obsession into the summer.
I made up size Small using my measurements. The top it fully lined and instead of finishing it with bias binding I used a decorative stitch. The construction of the wrap with the tie does need some careful reading but the pattern illustrations really help.
Fitting the playsuit is not possible as the side seams are the final seams to come together. After pinning I found that I didn’t need to include the zip at all.
There was a little gaping around the arm holes so I’ve had to adjust them slightly but still they don’t fit fully snug.

Jumpsuit of dreams!

I had to buy this pattern as soon as I saw it - I fell in love with the wrap front and tapered legs! I made my version in a beautiful green peachskin fabric which was lovely to sew with but didn't like a hot iron so needed a pressing cloth.

It wasn't too difficult to sew, probably not for a total beginner but for someone reasonably confident looking to develop their skills. The instructions were clear and the pattern was presented in a lovely way with attention to detail. I graded a size out in the hips (XS at bust and waist to an S at hips) which is a fairly standard adjustment for me. There was a small amount of gaping at the armpit so I took a small wedge out there which fixed the problem. I also wanted a more fitted leg look so added an extra cm to the seam allowance on the inside leg. I think next time I would shorten the straps by an inch but this needs to be done earlier in the process and I wasn't too fussy about it.

I now have the green jumpsuit of my dreams - classy and comfortable. I'm going to make the short version for my next holiday!

Needlecord jumpsuit

As soon as I saw the Sierra jumpsuit by Papercut Patterns I knew I had found the perfect jumpsuit for me. I’d flirted with the idea of dungarees for a while but hadn’t found a pattern that I thought would suit me. However, the Sierra with its tie waistband and v neckline were definite selling points.

I ordered the pdf pattern, printed it at home and stuck it together myself. I warn you, this is not a process for the faint of heart. I wish I’d taken a pic of the stack of A4 paper waiting to be cut as it even looked intimidating!

The construction at points feels like fabric origami, but the instructions plus the diagrams are really clear so I didn’t make any mistakes! I would advise taking your time through sewing the bodice together to make sure you sew the right bits together. I attempted to hand sew the facing to the front, but it wasn’t turning out how I hoped, so I stitched in the ditch and was satisfied with the result.

I used fabric with a bit of stretch and would again. My jumpsuit is super comfortable, and I don’t worry about it ripping when I bend over, which was my only fear when I embarked on this project.

Based on my measurements I made a Medium size, but I’ve found it too wide. I can take the jumpsuit on and off without using the zipper! It is nice and roomy though and the tie waist helps tuck it in. I think if/when I make a playsuit for the summer, I will make it a size smaller and do a full bust adjustment on the bodice.

As I have short legs the trousers are hemmed at regular rather than cropped length, which is my preferred length. If you have an inseam longer than 30” and want a full length trouser you will need to add length.

Upcycled Sierra Jumpsuit

Overall, this was a challenging but satisfying make.

I made this using a bedsheet I thrifted from Goodwill for $4! It was plenty of fabric to make a size medium.
I did not have to make any obvious adjustments, but I may make it in a size smaller next time to achieve a sleeker fit. Even the length was good on me, and I'm 5' 4".
One issue that I encountered was mixing up the lining and main bodice pieces, mostly because I used the same bedsheet fabric for both the main garment and the lining! I also had some trouble with the pocket insertion because it varied a little bit from other patterns with pockets.

Nonetheless, I love the garment! Super pleased with how it turned out, and I love the casual look of the jumpsuit.
