ZADIE JUMPSUIT • Pattern
By PAPER THEORY, the Zadie Jumpsuit is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Zadie Jumpsuit is a relaxed and easy to wear one piece that comes with the option of wide 3/4 length sleeves, or sleeveless with a dropped shoulder. It wraps around the body and fastens with a tie so there is no need for buttons or a zip - making it quick and to easy sew, and quick and easy to get on and off.
The legs are cut wide and skim above the ankle. There are deep slant pockets on the front, with small pleats at the waist on the front and back. The neck edge is finished with a bias binding.
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including sizes 6-28. The files are separated into two size ranges 6-20 and 16-28. Both size ranges are included with your purchase.
Sizing and finished garment measurements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: This pattern was designed especially for woven, medium weight fabrics like cotton and linen and would look great in fabric that has a draped quality like crepe, viscose twill or satin. It would also make up well in some heavier fabrics like drill and light weight denim. It is possible to make this in Knit or stretch fabrics like Jersey but the binding technique around the neck is tricky in a stretch fabric so be warned that would take the difficulty degree up a few notches.

Trims required: Matching thread.
