Tips for sewing with chiffon

  • Use weights instead of pins when cutting. This will keep your fabric in place and stop it from shifting. It will also eliminate any marks left behind from pins.
  • Cut one layer at a time to ensure accurate cutting.
  • Add a new needle to your machine so it can go through the fabric cleanly.
  • Avoid back stitching at the beginning and end of stitches, instead leave enough thread to hand tie knots.
  • Finish your seams professionally with french seams. They create a beautiful and clean finish on your seams.

The jumpsuit is back, and we couldn’t be more excited! With so many different styles to choose from, we will have you ready for just about any occasion. The jumpsuit was originally known as the siren suit, worn for utility purposes and practicality during World War II. We certainly have come a long way from that!

Summer 2019 brings on the trend of more utilitarian jumpsuits and this pattern matches that! With a front zipper and different pocket options, you can really go as utilitarian as you wish. But the princess seams make it easy to maintain femininity also.
