Playsuit Project - Complete!


It's finished! And it turned out great! It did require fractionally more technical skill than initially anticipated: Perhaps because the skirt of my shirtdress wasn't voluminous enough, it turned out that just snipping and sewing as per the original tutorial wouldn't be enough. We (and by 'we' I mean Joanna) took material out of the surprisingly generous seam allowances and - after several experiments involving safety-pinning the fabric together in a variety of permutations - made a gusset.


I expect she will post more sewing information on her blog. Meanwhile, I'm going to get on with packing for Thailand! Can't wait to wear my playsuit to the beach!

  1. oh, it turned out beautifully! I tried to make on the other day with an old dress but it was a disaster. I think there was something wrong with the original dress though, so I will try again! That one turned out great!

  3. I think it looks great! That's really the perfect pattern for it. I'd love the see how your sister created the gusset, I think if only I had that skill my homemade playsuits would be complete!
