The Jennifer Jumpsuit: The on-trend Summer staple.

The Jennifer Jumpsuit: The on-trend Summer staple.
This pattern has 4 pieces: front bodice, back bodice, front trouser and back trouser.  There is also an option to have a fully lined bodice which I didn't use at this time. The  jumpsuit came together very quickly in less than an hour.
Attaching the zips, binding neckline and sleeve edges were a breeze and instructions can be found on page 114-115; 120-121.

The Christie Circle Skirt: A simple sew with amazing results!
As a circle skirt lover, one thing I have come to realise is really important is waiting for the hem to drop.

Knowing how to measure yourself accurately is key to a well-fitting garment.  For best results, ask a friend to help or take your measurements whilst looking in a full-length mirror. Wear the undergarments you would normally wear under clothes and use a flexible tape measure.  When measuring, hold the measuring tape so that it's comfortably snug but not tight. Remember to jot down your body measurements on a piece of paper for reference.
