Virtual Sewalong: Peppermint Jumpsuit or Playsuit - 4 May to 23 June

Are you going?

6 people going



Let's do some fun summer sewing! Here is a choice of 2 free patterns created for Peppermint magazine by Into the Folds.

You should be able to find many blogger reviews for these online. When I had a quick look I saw a few for the jumpsuit by bloggers of different shapes / sizes, it seems popular. Also lots on instagram under #peppermintjumpsuit #peppermintplaysuit

As on their sizing they have put A, B, C rather than 8, 10, 12, etc I'm not sure what regular sizes they correspond with. I have included the size charts in the photo album - seems to be a wide range (from 30 to 51 inch bust).

Make 1 or both styles. I'm planning on making the blue one either as shown in the photo or shorter. If you're not sure that you would wear a jumpsuit / playsuit out and about (although don't knock it until you try it...) they would still be great for lounging around in at home.

Due to limitations in the meetup software this needs to be given date / times to set up the "event" but the idea is to start making and posting to this "event" any time from Sat 4th May with the target to finish by Sun 23rd June.

Looking forward to see everyone's version!


Issue 35 Jumpsuit pattern and instructions:
* Note: the jumpsuit pattern is bit paper hungry (50 pages) but there are some pages that only have the belt / sash that you could not print and just measure up some fabric separately or use an existing belt. You can see the pattern pages layout in the instructions file

Issue 40 Playsuit pattern and instructions:


*** NOTE:
For those that are new to the group - anything put in as a virtual sewalong doesn't mean that we all log in "somewhere" and do "something" at the time of the placeholder event. We are just working around the way the meetup software is set up by adding it as an event.

There is set time period (see elsewhere in this summary for specific dates) when everyone will work on their own project at home and add comments / photos of their ideas / progress / finished product. The end date of this is a deadline rather than a meeting. You can still add photos after it has moved to past events if you are running late with your project.
