Forrest Jumpsuit - Daring Denim Update

Posted on October 28, 2020 by Shavonne Cruz

The Forrest Jumpsuit pattern has quickly become one of my all-time favorites! Patterns that have detailed construction and clean lines are always great for hacking. To change up this pattern, I added an easy zip front and convenient front patch pockets. Best of all, it’s made from Mood Fabrics' beautiful Indigo Cotton Dobby Denim! This medium-weight denim is durable and works great for this utility-style ensemble. The chic puff sleeves and belted waist make styling a breeze. Rock your jumpsuit with heels or with sneakers for a more casual look. Cotton twill or cotton canvas would work great as an alternative option. You could even try your hand with faux leather for a stunning look!

As always, I would suggest that you make a muslin to determine your size and the best fit for you. For my jumpsuit, I cut a size 8/10. Keep in mind that this denim is very sturdy, but does not have stretch. I pre-washed my fabric before cutting to preshrink and check for colorfastness. If you desire a more relaxed fit, I would suggest going up 1 size, and make adjustments accordingly.
