Alternative Recommended Fabrics:
Note: All seams are ⅜’’ aside from the hem and waistline, which are further explained in the instructions below.
Note: Use a stretch stitch on all seams except hems and straps.
1. Print, tape, and cut out pattern pieces.
2. Pin pattern pieces to fabric and cut.
3. Notch all your notches that are indicated on your patterns.
4. Pin the center front pant legs together.
5. Pin the center back sections together and stitch at ⅜’’.
6. Pin and sew the pockets to the front of your pants.
7. Fold the pockets back and pin them in place.
8. Pin the bottom of the pocket and sew a regular stitch seam there at ⅜’’. Keep the top pocket pinned.
9. Pin the front bodice to the front pant at the waistline. Sew at ⅞’’.
10. Fold the hem to the top of the bodice down ⅜’’ stitch using a wide stitch, about 3.5 – 4.
11. Pin the back bodice to the back pant at the waistline. Sew at ⅞’’ and press open.
12. Once the seams are pressed open on the front and the back pieces, pin along the seam line and sew ½’’ on both sides.
13. Measure half of your waist and cut four strips of ¼’’ elastic to half of your measurement. Make sure the elastic isn’t too tight; it will snap.
14. Thread the elastic through both tunnels and put a pin on both sides. Make sure your elastic isn’t twisted after threading it. Once you have checked for the twist, do a stay stitch of the ends of the elastic. The same process goes for the front and the back pieces.
15. Fold your tab pieces with right sides together, stitch, trim, and flip.
16. Fold the top edge of the back bodice down ⅜’’ and pin. Fold the tabs in half and pin them where the notches are located. Stitch across the back using a wide stitch length.
17. Pin strap piece to front bodice starting at the end of the armscye. Stitch at ⅜’’.
18. Fold strap in ⅜’’ on both sides. Pin and stitch.
19. Pin front and back together matching waistline seams and crotch seams. Sew the sides and then the crotch.
20. Lastly turn up the hem ½’’ and stitch.
I have a problem to dawnlowd this pattern
Hi, Ouahida! Sorry about that – the download should be working fine now. 🙂
Such a beautiful pattern! Would it still work with a loose woven fabric? Or should I stick to knits and jerseys?
Hi, Ash! I haven’t tried it with any wovens, but I think it could still work if you add a zipper somewhere. You may want to size up once or twice too to account for the lack of stretch. Be sure to test it with a muslin first!
I have a flowing baby blue rayon fabric that I’d like to use for this, but it doesn’t really stretch. Do you think I could get away with adding a zipper to the back and replacing the elastic with a cute drawstring?
Hi, Sophie! I think that’s definitely possible, but you may want to size up once or twice to add more ease for the lack of stretch. I’d test it out with a muslin first!
Bonjour Cette combinaison est superbe
Merci pour le patron
Hello, I printed the 1st page with the test square and the square is about 1/8inch short on all sides. What do I have to do to get it to 2 inches?
Hi, Mary! You’ll need to play around with your printer settings a bit. If it’s printing at 100% scale right now and it’s too small, you can try increasing the percentage until the square is accurate to 2″. 🙂
Is ITY a suitable fabric for this pattern
Yes, ITY would be great for this pattern! 🙂
How many yards of material are needed for the size 20 or how do I determine how much I need to get the right amount? Also, if I were to use a non stretch fabric, would I need a zipper, or just size up how would that work?
Hi, Gen! You can check out the ‘Shop this Look’ widget for sizing/yardage info. 🙂 And this pattern is made for fabrics with a generous stretch, so I can’t say for sure how it’d translate to a woven. You’ll likely want to add some sort of closure though!
Approximately, how much material would I need for a size 18, if I made this pattern into upper thigh length (pretty short) shorts instead of pants? Any guestimate? Thank you.
Good afternoon! I think you’d probably be okay with 2 yards for that, but 2.5 may be a safer bet if you’re going to be pattern matching. 🙂
I actually bought that exact color jersey to make a jumpsuit a few months back. The pattern I used was super basic (yet oh so comfortable), but I might have to make this version. The only thing I might try to change in my next attempt is the material used for the shoulder straps, as on mine they’ve stretched a bit over time.
Can I ask how the back ties together? Does it relate to the tab pieces? Sorry – I’ve downloaded the pattern and want to understand it before I start to cut! Thanks
Hi Helen! The front ties are threaded through the tabs on the back bodice, and then tied into a bow. 😀
I’ve made two of these using bed sheets with no stretch. I sized up two sizes as was advised by the op and they fit great! I did bunch up the neckline though cause it looked a bit frumpy but I am pleased with the results 🙂
This is a beautiful pattern. I just finished making my first out of a bamboo jersey and am already planning a color for the second. I am very happy with the results.
Hi. Could I used a silk/ satin for this and hack it into a cowl neck dress or topic? Should I size up two sizes?
Good morning! Yes, absolutely sewable in a lightweight satin – that’d be gorgeous. I do recommend sizing up at least twice. It may be a good idea to make a mock-up in muslin or a cheaper but similar fabric to your satin before committing with your final fabric. 🙂
This is a fabulous pattern! One question though, before I cut the fabric, do I have to draw a one inch allowance around the pattern? Or do I pin the pattern on top of the fabric and cut as is?
Hi, Miki! The seam allowance noted on the pattern is already included for you. 🙂
Made this with a travelers type knit fabric ifeim my stash (wine color). I am 5’10 so made 4″ longer in the legs and 3/4″ longer in the bodice. Size 12. I am not a small lady so i dont usually go sleeveless but wore it last night to a wine dinner and felt fab. I got a lot of complements. Thanks!
This is around the level of instruction I need. More is better!
Can’t wait to try this out.
I have an inherited fabric stash and lots of fabric that I’m not sure what it is. Do you have any tips on fabric-identifying?
Gracias por permitirme bajar este patrón. Es mi primera vez .
Would you say a confident beginner could do this? I’m looking for something a little complicated but still possible for a new sewer to make
Hi Brie, if you’ve sewn with stretch fabric before I think a confident beginner could do it!
Great! Thanks for the help
Hello, the download link in the email I got isn’t working 🙁
