Simple Jumpsuit Tutorial

Hopefully you will have seen my idea for the basic jumpsuit, if not, here is a reminder.


I am going to show you how I made it, and of course the final thing.


1.Measure, mark and cut the fabric.

2. Sew darts. Because my waist dart is much bigger than usual, I used pinking shears to snip away the excess, leaving a 1.5cm seam allowance. This is helpful for pressing flat the dart.

3. Sew back bodice and leg panels together matching the darts.


4. Sew 2inches at the centre front seam of the front trouser panels.

5. Sew the front bodice to the front trousers.


6. Sew in the zip to the back panels.


7. Sew the should seams together.

8. Sew the side seams of the full jumpsuit together.


9. Sew the inside leg seams of the jumpsuit together.


10. Sew the crotch seam together from bottom of 2inch stitching to base of the zip.


11. Sew the neckline, sleeve opening and trouser hem down.

I am pleased with the overall jumpsuit, but there was a little bagging around the front crotch area, but that can easily be fixed, by stitching the inseams with a greater seam allowance.

If I were to make them again, I think I’d go for a more tailored leg trouser than a skinny leg trouser, maybe with pleats instead of darts at the waist, at the moment it looks more like a boiler suit, but that’s okay, into the dressing up box it goes!
