Zadie Jumpsuit PDF

Paper Theory Patterns

£14.00

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 with so there is no need for buttons or a zip – making it quick and to easy 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.

Suggested fabric: 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) 115cm / 45″ wide fabrics 2.75m – 4.40m (3 yards – 4.8 yards). 150cm / 60″ wide fabrics 2.25m – 3.56m (2.46 yards – 3.9 yards). For option B (sleeveless) – reduce fabric quantity but 35cm/ 0.4 yards for all sizes.

Sizing: UK 6-28. Please see the size chart for more information. The files are separated into two size ranges 6-20 and 16-28. Sizes 16/18/20 overlap between both size ranges so you can still grade up or down easily if you are on the edge of a size range.

Notions: Matching thread.

    5 out of 5 Beautiful pattern - well written and drafted.

    KettleYarnCo.

    Finished my @papertheory #zadiejumpsuit wearable toile. This was my first wear and I’ve since made some further adjustments as the crotch felt a bit low on me, especially in the back. I made the 10 and am a 34″ bust and 39″ hip.

    For anyone who is interested I made the following adjustments to the pattern. I am a little over 5’4″ and took the rise up 2.5″, took the darts in at the back for a simple swayback adjustment, as well as scooped a bit out of the lower back. I squared out the crotch curve for my round 🍑. I drafted a facing for the opening as I felt the bias binding was going to be too fiddly for me and I also didn’t want to stretch that bias neckline.

    I brought the leg width in as felt they were a bit too wide for my frame.

    On the pattern for the next version I also took the back shoulder in about a cm on each side for my shorter shoulder width at back.

    I plan to add a hidden snap button at front join as it did tend to slide open on me and will also add belt loops at back to keep the belt at the waist. I think this will also keep it from sliding down at the back and creating ‘diaper butt’. 😋

    Then I feel it will be damn near perfect!!

    Really nicely drafted and well written instructions.

    A pattern I would recommend for many reasons. It’s bang on trend and comfortable garment. The pattern itself is well drafted with easy to follow instructions.
    I did make some changes . I went down in size to reduce the volume ( I cut the smallest size, size 6. I would normally cut an 8/10). This is still plenty big enough on me – whilst still maintaining the designed generous fit.
    I also reduced the bodice length ( a common adjustment for me on all patterns) and raised the crotch as suggested by many other bloggers Finally some length removed from the trouser legs too.( I am only 5 foot 2)

    My chosen fabric was a viscose linen in light ,I had 2 metres of this- slightly less than the stated requirement but just about squeezed the garment out of it

    When cutting out I didn’t follow the layouts, or the suggestion to cut single layered( not required in my humble opinion unless dealing with pattern placement on intricate fabric). I also placed the back piece on the fold to eliminate the seam here ( couldn’t work out why this was required)

    The final adjustment I decided to do was to follow online suggestions of replacing the bias binding around the front with a facing. I cut the facing from a contrast cotton fabric as I did not have enough of the main fabric

    The instructions to make up the jumpsuit were really clear, and assembly was quick and easy as there isn’t any close fitting required and no zips , buttons etc The design is also really unusual / different so well worth buying the pattern

    making pretty patterns

    I may not look to out of place if I were to meet up with the red arrows this summer! This my new red linen Zadie Jumpuit from Paper Theory Patterns.
    It was an impulse, must make asap ,that kept my awake the night before with excitement. Does anyone else suffer with SRI Syndrome!? Aka sewing related insomnia!
    In order to proceed with the project, the fabric was also a last-minute buy from my local fabric shop. There was a selection of linen, some more floppity than others. I chose this for its rich colour and the slight sheen and crispness of the linen. Most I had seen for inspiration on Instagram are made from linen or blends and so I was confident it would work.
    I made a size 11 by cutting the pattern pieces right between the 10 and 12 sizes, but as always with a new pattern wasn’t really sure what I should go for. There is finished measurements chart which is so useful if you can envisage what that looks like in your size! I often make clothes a bit too big and this was no exception. The bum turned out quite baggy and the crotch a bit too low, so I scooped out about 2 inches from under the crotch seam all the way up the back and on to the bodice, making a further pleat that I think blends in well as the there are two others either side. This also meant I took a bit off the waist. So next time I will size down.
    I didn’t have any bother putting it all together. The instructions are excellent. Very clear. I was a little confused what exactly was going to happen on the neck line as I read some had swapped binding for facing. Then I noted that the binding is fixed so that it is visible, not turned in, as I originally had assumed. Therefore, I felt that despite my fairly bulky fabric that it would work well. I also had concerns that I wouldn’t be neat enough, but I took it very slowly. I did not use the method given in the instructions. I sewed the binding right sides together with the front openings, and then after pressing, turned it in and top stitched from the right side, catching the binding underneath. It was so successful that I decided to finish the armholes in the same way.
    I will be making more, but I wont be wearing this to any air shows this summer!

    5 out of 5 The perfect summer jumpsuit

    themindfulsewist

    A fun and gratifying make, I love this jumpsuit.
    I sewed this in linen and it’s a dream to wear. This pattern has a lot of ease as is and my bust measurement put me into a larger size than my hips. I did size down 1 size which worked well but I felt it still was a bit large on my lower half. I removed more width along the inside leg by adding another inch to the seam allowance. I loved the end result!

    Quick to make and easy to wear. It’s like having secret pyjamas for the summer. I used linen look cotton from John Lewis and sewed a straight size 10 with no adjustments. It took under 5 hours from starting to cut out the fabric to wearing it and I don’t want to take it off!

    5 out of 5 Souk Zadie

    JudithRosalind

    Perfect match of fabric and pattern. This is my second version of the Zadie. The first was made from a dyed cotton sheet, made as a wearable toile. I learned that I needed to take two inches from the rise for my 5’2″ height. Other than that I made a size 14 with no other modifications for my 39/33/40 body.
    In my second version, pictured here, I went for the sleeveless version. The fabric is a glorious mid weight linen from Merchant and Mills, colour ‘Souk’. It was a very satisfying sew. I cheated with the tie belt by just folding and stitching, rather than turning inside out… the fabric is quite firm and I didn’t think it would turn very easily. I hand embroidered a label which I sewed on the outside back neck. Other than this it was very straight forward.
    First wear was to a 60th birthday party where I danced the night away with no gaping. The second wearing was to a Sew Scottish meet up afternoon tea…. plenty of room for cakes. The only issue is taking care with the ties on loo visits.

    5 out of 5 Linen Zadie Jumpsuit

    sewmanju

    I have not worn a jumpsuit for years but I LOVE this one. It feels very comfortable and chic. The wrap idea is so clever. Nothing to dislike as such, although I did omit the bias binding finish on the wrap edges and drafted a facing which I topstitched into place.
    Here’s a list of the modifications that I made:
    I cut a size 16 through the bust, shoulders and arms, and graded out over the hips.
    FYI I am 5’3″.
    I shortened the rise (above the crotch) by 2 inches, both front and back.
    I further shortened the legs and sleeves by 3 inches and used 1.5 inches for hemming.
    I added 3/8ths inch seam allowance to the bodice fronts, back neckline and front of pants, upto the drill hole, to facilitate attaching the facing that I drafted.
    My facings were drafted to be 1.5 inches deep, with 3/8ths inch used as seam allowance. I interfaced the facings.
    I did a 5/8ths inch full bust adjustment and closed the resulting bust dart and rotated into the waist pleat. (Used the method for a cut on/ kimono sleeve bodice from Fit for Real People).
    I did a 5/8ths inch full bum adjustment.
    I moved the waist tie position down by 1 inch (my hole through which the tie passes is in the waist seam).
    I added a snap at the bodice cross over point.

    5 out of 5 An upcycled wax print Zadie jumpsuit

    sewuthinkucan

    This is the first of many Zadie jumpsuits. I love Paper Theory patterns for their simplicity and ease of construction. The newest Zadie jumpsuit pattern doesn’t disappoint. It is well drafted and really quick to put together.
    I repurposed one of my mom’s wax print outfits to sew this Zadie. I sewed a size 10 overall with a 12 at the waist and didn’t do any modifications except for adding a facing and drafting some lantern sleeves.
    A gem of a pattern!

    5 out of 5 Trendy but comfy!

    Sarah Hyde

    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.
