How To Style And Wear Your Playsuit Pattern
Amidst the name different playsuits patterns, a wrap bodice with V-neckline is the most universally-flattering silhouette of them all - plus, they require zero mental energy to style. The Kylie pattern will effortlessly accentuate the waist and bust, while also helping enhance your curves due to the ultra-slimming effect of the waist.
For a nighttime affair, you can style your favorite playsuit with a pair of lace-u heels (or, even better, this year's trendiest platform heels), add two rows of layer-able, dainty necklaces and opt for your favorite chain bag.
For effortlessly chic, casual ensembles, style the Wrap Playsuit with a pair of sneakers and a saddle or bucket bag. If you are ready to embrace trends, opt for statement-colored loafers or almost-flat mules instead.

How To Make A Play Suit
A lot of love went into making this sewing pattern. I wanted it to be a pattern that not only you would love but one I'd be happy creating for myself. It is one of my favorite patterns to date and one I wish to sew again soon in different variations. Here are the supplies needed for this project:
- Your Kylie Playsuit Pattern
- Preffered fabric
- Color matching thread
- Sewing machine
- 2 small buttons
- fusible interlining for collar
- 1 cm wide elastic
- fusible interlining tape
- 3 cm for hem
- 1 cm for the rest of the seams
There are lots of different fabric to choose from when it comes to making you new item. Consider Light weight or medium weight woven fabrics, suitable for playsuits such as tencel twill, linen, double gauze, satin, cotton etc. For example, our sample is made of rayon
How much fabric do you need for your diy jumpsuit pattern?
Below is a chart that gives you the amount of fabric required for your size, based on a useful width of fabric between 140 and 150 centimeters. If you are using a different width or pattern, adjust the placement of pieces so that the finished garment will fit correctly to your available width.
You know how annoying it is to put all your time and effort into making a beautiful garment, only to have it shrink in the wash. The good news is that there's an easy way to avoid this problem!
Most fabrics have a heat recommendation printed on their care label or bolt. To test for contraction, simply iron your fabric at its maximum heat recommendation before cutting it.
