Minerva Crafts Blog: A Chambray Jumpsuit

For my Minerva Crafts Blog Project this month, I decided to make a Jumpsuit,  and used this Indigo Chambray. It’s the first jumpsuit I’ve made that feels like my style and look forward to making more jumpsuits in the future.  It has these huge pockets in the front, which make it functional, but you just put it on that’s your whole outfit done. It was my first time working with Chambray and it’s easy to work with and feels great to wear.



Pattern: Simplicity K8610
Fabric: Indigo Chambray
Notions: Invisible zip.
Modifications: Heaps, I added a turn up cuff on the trousers, ditched the detachable straps, I tapered the trousers and left out the bodice band.
Fit: Requires a lot of fitting so make a toile
Difficulty: Relatively straight forward, the gathered trousers don’t require much fitting at the waist
Watch out for: Size, I used the garment measurements to decide what pattern to cut and still needed to take a lot in
Make Again?: Probably not, but definitely want to make more jumpsuits in the future.
