Jump on the Sew Your Own Jumpsuit Trend

Ann Siegle

Jumpsuits are hot! Whether you want something for summer or for fall/winter, a knit jumpsuit that is easy to get in and out of should be high on your list of things to sew. They’re easy to wear and in knit fabrics, are as comfortable as loungewear.

The summer version of the jumpsuit features a blouson bandeau top which is very forgiving and easy to wear, with wide legs. You can also make this with skinny legs and even jogger style cuff or elastic at hem.

Fall-to-winter V-neck Jumpsuit with wide or skinny legs

From graceful dolman sleeves, to a wrap front and your choice of skinny, jogger skinny, or cropped wide leg variations, the Christine Jonson Jumpsuit is made from two super-easy to sew sewing patterns that have endless versatility both together and separate (bonus, you can make a jumpsuit attached or separate!)

You’ll need two patterns: the Christine Jonson Wrap Top 212 and the Christine Jonson Tapered & Wide Leg Pant 824. The top, you’ll construct nearly 100% of the way, except for the bottom hem. You can decide if you want the notched ‘peplum’ look to the front of the top or if you want it to be ‘tucked in’ to the elastic waist casing of the pants part of the jumpsuit.

Your leg choices also vary: The Taper and Wide Leg pant offer both options. The no-side-seam pant is easy for making jumpsuits (and pants) out of. The Wide Leg version is tapered slightly at the hem. To make a wide, full, palazzo style leg, simply chalk on your fabric from the knee point of the pattern to hem straight down. To keep the leg the same shape, but wear it cropped (a very on-trend look), crop the pant just below the widest point on your calf. To make joggers, use the Taper leg version and add a double row of casings and thread elastic through them. Don’t make the elastic too snug, just enough to cinch the hem but not grab your calf.

Summer jumpsuit with wide or skinny legs:

Crafting a strapless bandeau jumpsuit with wide or skinny legs is easy using the same Christine Jonson pant pattern and an easy to draw bandeau top. Choose wide full length or cropped or skinny leg, or even skinny jogger style elastic hems.

The instructions, designed by Ann Siegle (Christine Jonson’s Customer Experience guru), are linked here. You’ll need the Taper & Wide Leg pants sewing pattern for the pants. The Wide Leg version is tapered slightly at the hem out of the envelope. To make a wide, full, palazzo style leg, simply chalk on your fabric from the knee point of the pattern to hem straight down.

To keep the leg the same shape, but wear it cropped (a very on-trend look), crop the pant just below the widest point on your calf. To make joggers, use the Taper leg version and add a double row of casings and thread elastic through them. Don’t make the elastic too snug, just enough to cinch the hem but not grab your calf. You can also create a cuff (like a sleeve cuff) for your jogger style.
