Notes This is the 2nd muslim I make for this pattern. Unfortunately don’t seem to get the right fit, decided to make it culottes length this time. This is the first time I encounter a pattern with many problems, the Upper back pieces don’t match correctly, had to alter to make them fit, also there is a problem at the crotch , the pants pull and are tight in the crotch area both in front and in the back of the pants. I also made the upper part of the suit longer to give it more ease at the waist, but don’t seem to help much. Don’t think that I will make this again.

    You’re welcome! And thanks for your comment Monique, I tried fixing it couple times, but is a shame is not wearable.

  • Monique Rozendal

    Thank you for your comments with this pattern. I had the same problems with the back upper part and the fit.
    But you made -dispite the problems- a beautiful jumpsuit. It's really lovely!

  • Astrid Herrera

    Thank you for the tip Bodil :) will try making a different jumpsuit soon

  • Astrid Herrera

    Yes, I agree with you Désirée. Luckily i didn't use my good fabric on this one :)

  • Astrid Herrera

    Thank you Maria, I'll take that into account next time when choosing a pattern. I'd definitely recommend choosing a different pattern to avoid all the many adjustments needed on this one!

    When giving body measurements for jumpsuits, one is missing, and that is the circumference shoulder - crotch - shoulder.

    il est vrai qu'il y des fois il vaut mieux faire un brouillon avec un vieux drap pour etre sure que tout va bien

    The patterns that don't give all the extra "optional" measurements (Sewist) cannot offer the same great fit as the usual Lekala system. This style looks lovely, but I haven't tried it for this reason, I have narrow shoulders, large boobs, a long torso and short limbs - so I suspect I would have exactly the same problem with this as you have found.
    I like the combination of colours you have chosen for this, such a pity about the fit.
