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 Philippa Pinafore Dress: Stylish and oh so versatile!

The Philippa Pinafore Dress: Stylish and oh so versatile!

This pattern is marked a three star difficulty (most of the other garments are two stars) and there definitely were some new techniques for me. I’d never done a half elasticated waist before, it was quite fiddly and a bit different from elastic all the way round, because you don’t pull the elastic through a channel, you insert it from the long side. It felt a bit counterintuitive and was a bit fiddly, but it worked a treat! It’s so nice to have it fitted at the back waist but still have a nice clean flat front. Definitely more half elasticated waists in my future!
