How to sew the Sunday Morning Jumper:
1- Pin and sew the two back pieces. Start at the top and sew towards the crotch, then open the seam allowance.
2- Pin the back of the garment to the front, sew the side seam on both sides, starting at the top with the armhole and going down to the bottom of the leg.
3- Once the side seams are closed, sew the front and back together at the crotch. Start at one side of the pant leg, over and around the crotch, then work your way back down the other pant leg.
4- To create basic straps, draw the pattern piece measuring 10″ long x 1.5″ wide (for size 4). With right sides together, sew this piece with a 3/8″ seam allowance, then trim the excess fabric without cutting the stitch line.
5- Use a buckle turner to turn the shoulder strap outwards.
*For adjustable straps, follow the illustration below and use the metal sliders to adjust the length and find the perfect fit.
6- To add pockets, first mark and iron the seam allowance around the pocket pieces. Before sewing them onto the garment, topstitch all around the pocket 1/4″ (from the raw edge) to keep the seam allowance in place.
7- Pin the pockets to the garment, then topstitch on the edges while leaving the top open.
8- Complete this project by finishing all the raw edges around the garment. Some options for this include sewing a rolled hem or using an overlock stitch around the edges and sewing the hem with a 1/2″ seam allowance.
From stitches to sewing, recognize and celebrate every little accomplishment along the way. These victories, no matter how small or subtle, advance your technical skills and contribute to your overall progress. Remember, success is about the journey, not the destination. Embracing the process, staying committed, and believing in your ability to overcome challenges will only strengthen you as a seamstress!
