Let The Sewing Begin

I’m approximately half way through with the jumpsuit and so far, I’m really happy with how it’s come together. After a quick test fit, I did have to make a few adjustments: mainly reducing the seam allowance at the waist and shoulder seams just to be sure that the jumpsuit didn’t cut my slightly long-waisted son in the crotch area. Otherwise, this seems to be fitting very well although he complained that it was ‘itchy’ (I’m not sure if this was the loose threads or the fabric itself). The biggest tip I can give you at this step: Make sure that you accurately transfer all the markings from your patter piece to your fabric. Areas such as the leg inserts require precise sewing so that it all comes together smoothly and evenly – being sure that your marks line up, etc. will definitely prevent (or at least reduce) any headaches!

Up tomorrow: inserting the invisible zipper…… without an invisible zipper foot!

    Dang, you are fast!!! I am still in the cutting stage of my daughter’s costume. She is panicking because her dance is this Friday…
