DIY Faux jumpsuit

Lately I’ve been obsessed with wrap everything! If something has a potential to add a wrap, you can best believe a wrap will be added.  When I saw this fabric on Moodfabrics.com, I was familiar with this particular composition and thought It would make a great lightweight dress but decided right before I cut it, a wrap top was needed.  This is truly the most simple top you will ever make.  I figured a pair of high waisted pants would give this a jumpsuit look with the option to later wear separates.

The top was made by cutting 1 piece of fabric 150″x 11.5″ and 2 pieces of fabric 45″ x 11.5″.  Attach each 45″ piece to the ends of the 150″ piece which will give you a 240″ wrap which is plenty long.  I finished the edges by folding them under 1″ twice and stitching along the perimeter.  This will leave you with a finished width of 7.5″

The pants were made using the same pattern used here with the following alterations:

-Added 2″ to the width of the waistband

-Removed 2″ from the length

    I absolutely love this! I remember when you started sewing and my gosh each piece gets more impeccable (at least for my taste). I am going to learn how to sew sooner than later. I love the carefree, streamlined style.
