I have a jumpsuit on my 2018 Make Nine list, a copy of this Madewell one. Before I cut into the good Kaufman twill (in that brick brown that’s sold out everywhere) I wanted to check the pattern. So I got a duvet cover at IKEA during their January sale, cut apart the front and back, and used one piece to make a wearable muslin.
This was fast and easy and fit pretty well with minimal tweaks. The waist has an elastic casing as drafted; I tried it with the blousing but thought it made it look dated, so I ended up just folding the casing over on itself and topstitching it like it was an intentional waist detail. It works!
When I make it in the “real” fabric I’ll have to figure out how to do a swayback adjustment, but otherwise I think this is a good fit. Jumpsuits are so comfortable, guys–you’re covered up and look fashionable but it feels like you’re not even wearing pants. Yay loose clothing!
Cool! It turned out great and beautiful pattern matching! I made a similar denim jumpsuit out of almost an identical 80’s pattern and I love it!
It looks fantastic! Gotta love one-piece dressing.
