Trendy but comfy!

A review of Paper Theory Patterns Zadie Jumpsuit

Reviewed by Sarah Hyde on 12th March, 2019

Loved making this pattern. It’s my first Paper Theory pattern and I really enjoyed making the Zadie jumpsuit. I made a size 20 (UK) for reference my measurements are bust 44″, waist 39″, hips 45″ (5 ft 8″ tall)and I would describe myself as an apple shape from the front. I made no changes to the pattern as it was my first from this pattern maker. I would usually have to extend the bodice and adjust the rise on a jumpsuit but I don’t feel the need to do either for this one, the relaxed fit and style mean its less challenging to fit than other jumpsuit patterns.
The instructions for this pattern were spot on and the pictures all accurate. Although I would describe myself as an advanced beginner/ intermediate, I think a beginner would be able to sew this pattern providing you are comfortable making and using bias-binding. I used a sandwashed tencel twill from The Fabric rooms in grey.
I downloaded and put together the pdf version and it went together easily and at 42 pages wasn’t a long process.
I love the fit and that this has no closures other than a wrap top, I would happily wear this dressed up to go out or for a more relaxed day.
