By Hand London


Buy the Holly Jumpsuit, Trousers and Shorts sewing pattern from By Hand London. Holly is a fantastically versatile jumpsuit with figure flattering high-waisted, snug on the butt, wide in the leg trousers and a side seam zipper. Variations include a button-down bodice with a scoop neck and short sleeves with a turned up cuff, or a strappy, bias cut bodice with a slight cowl at the neckline – we’re talking disco vibes!

    5 out of 5 Dream 70s Disco Jumpsuit!


    I made the full-length jumpsuit version of the Holly Jumpsuit. I searched through loads of jumpsuit patterns for woven fabrics before finally settling on this one and I’m glad I found it! I made a few adjustments to it, including a different bodice front (cowl necks don’t flatter me). I also adjusted the crotch depth because I am petite. Otherwise, it sewed up to my measurements perfectly. I added silk lining and it came together very easily. The construction only took me a couple of hours and I appreciated the clear instructions. All in all an easy make with no headaches, no groaning, no picking at stitches. I have another in the works already – but a bit more mellow than my original. 🙂 I am also looking forward to making a pants-only version.
