Boiler suits and coveralls are still going strong, and for good reason! They are some of the most practical, utilitarian, and comfortable workwear inspired pieces one can wear year round. We’ve seen them on the runway and in magazines, worn by fashion-forward celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Rihanna, and Victoria Beckham, to name a few. If you’re wanting to make your very own boiler suit, look no further than our Heath Jumpsuit Free Sewing Pattern. It’s a great place to start! Using fabric from our Mood Exclusive Metro Collection, we wanted to redux the Heath Jumpsuit by adding long sleeves. I also think this would look amazing with the addition of cargo pockets on the pant legs!

How to add long sleeves:
1. Measure from the top of your shoulder to the point where you want the sleeve to sit. Add half an inch for the shoulder seam allowance.
2. Tape a piece of pattern making paper onto the original sleeve.
3. With the measurement from step 1, mark the new length of your sleeve, starting from the uppermost point of the shoulder, going straight down to where the new cuff will be located. Using that new measurement, draw a line that’s parallel to the old cuff edge.
4. Use a ruler to extend the existing inner seam lines all the way down to the new hem.
5. On the line you drew in step 3, fold the paper under.
6. Cut out the new pattern.
7. Unfold the paper, and draw a new line that’s 1 ½” below the fold.
8. Cut the excess off.
9. Sew the sleeve!
I just printed your pattern 100% scaling A4 but something doesn’t work :/ can you please explain how to print it on A4 not us letter ?
Hi there! Did the square not measure 2×2 inches? Our patterns are formatted for both A4 & US Letter sizes, so this may be a printer settings issue. When you print the pattern, make sure you are printing to “actual size”, not scaled. Hopefully this helps! 🙂
I love this jumpsuit
