All About the Sky Jumpsuit



Build Your Wardrobe with the Sky Jumpsuit

This jumpsuit is a feminine, sleek, and classy project to start your sewing for a new year. Use your favorite woven fabric, like linen or lightweight denim, or pick a special fabric, like silk noil or rayon suiting, to sew an elegant piece for 2019.

Sky features a v-neck finished with a facing, with bust and waist darts for shaping, side seam pockets that are secured at the waistline, and sleeves that hit mid-bicep. The waist ties wrap around 1 1/2 times, the hem hits 2” above the ankle, and the jumpsuit is finished with a center back invisible zipper with a keyhole closure.



Ionna is wearing a size 16 Sky jumpsuit with 1” added at the waist, 3” added at the hip, and 2 1/2” added for length. She is 5’10” and her measurements are 43 1/2”, 37 3/4”, and 49”.
