It wraps around the body and fastens with a tie 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. More...

  • Denim Embroidered Border Print Chambray - At a sewing retreat last May, on of the attendees sported a Zadie Jumpsuit that used a border print fabric to colorblock the bodice and since then, I cannot get it out of my head. That's why, when given the opportunity, I chose this lovely embroidered chambray for the pattern. With embroidered flowers along the border and solid chambray in the center, this fabric opens up a whole host of possibilities in cutting. Put the floral on the pants hem for a boho feel or use the floral on the wrap bodice for an impactful colorblock look. Or even create floral sleeve while keeping the rest of the jumpsuit a solid blue. I can feel my creative juices flowing just thinking about it...
  • Black Double Crepe - Double crepe feels like a luxury fabric. Slinky, with good body, and a creped texture, it makes you think of high end dresses and expensive suits. And it's perfect for the draped look of the jumpsuit. If you're looking to make a dressier version of the jumpsuit, one that can be work appropriate or even frocktails appropriate, this is the fabric for you. Create your PBJ (Perfect Black Jumpsuit) and get a jumpsuit that will be as beautiful as you are.
  • Hunter Green Cupro Bengaline - Cupro, a form of viscose, has a lovely, dry hand that is soft but not sheer, making it ideal for this jumpsuit. The deep twill lines of the bengaline add great texture and a slight sheen to the fabric. And that green?! You make have noticed that I have a soft spot for deep, jewel-toned greens, and this hunter is no exception. It's rich and verdant and effortlessly elegant, and it will make for an equally elegant jumpsuit you'll want to wear all the time.
