When I saw a tester call for The Studio Jumpsuit & Dress from Sew Straight & Gather, I immediately loved it! I wasn’t convinced I could pull off a jumpsuit, so I sewed up both dress versions. My first dress was this beautiful purple maxi dress with pockets.
Next I made the shorter dress version. I used a solid on top and a beautiful floral print for the skirt portion. This dress is very fitted, and as the pattern states it really is “comfortable and classy”.
After seeing all the beautiful jumpsuit versions that the other testers made, I think I will need to make a jumpsuit too! You can see some inspiration photos on the Sew Straight & Gather blog.
Modifications: I added small darts at the bust to get the perfect fit at the bodice.
Recommendations: Your fabric needs to have good recovery due to the fitted nature of the pattern.
Fabric: The floral fabric is from Girl Charlee.
