The jumpsuit turned out really cute, I love the pockets. I did have to make some adjustments to the pattern however. The bodice and pants didn't line up, side seam to side seam, so I had to decrease the width of the front pleat to make them fit. Also if you are going to surge the bottom of the pant legs for hemming, I would recommend this be done before the inseam is sewed. I also finished the inside of the bodice by sewing the top to the bottoms by the outer bodice only, leaving the lining free, press the seam allowance up toward the bodice, then turn the bottom of the lining up 1/4 inch and hand stitch along the waistline on the inside. All in all I'm quite pleased with the overall design of the jumpsuit.
This is a very cute outfit. I did have some difficulty with getting the seams to line up when attaching the bodice to the bottom. I made an adjustment to the pleats by making them a little narrower. The jumpsuit fits the Our Generation Doll quite well.
I also had problems with the strap length and the top back piece does say cut one of fabric and one of lining. You do need to cut 2 or you only have one side of the back. I made the overalls in navy baby corduroy and they are adorable. I will try again but will add length to the straps.
perfect pattern, thank you !
