Amy Jumpsuit Pattern
Fabric and Supplies
Drapey wovens such as rayon challis, tencel, silk, and viscose will create a soft, swishy effect.
Crisp, lightweight wovens like double gauze, linen, and lawn will provide a more structured silhouette.

Just before school let out for the summer, I downloaded, printed, and taped the pattern for the Amy jumpsuit. It was the first time I had ever printed out a pattern before, but it worked beautifully. I made the short version and wore it several times. I altered the shoulder straps so that I could tie them in a square knot at the top of each shoulder. This allowed for any needed adjustment. Loved the finished product! (I am on the far right.)
I cannot wait to make this in every color.
This is the second closed core pattern I made and again the instructions and sizing were great.
I made mine in a flowery viscose and love the way it flows. Perfect for summer!
Amazing pattern! Easy to understand for a beginner and really versatile.
I was scared about making my first lining and using a zipper, but the instructions and graphics were clear and concise
I've made one with rayon challis and linen and will probably make another one soon!
Pattern works up pretty easily, and is supremely comfy to wear. In addition to a regular version of this, I also made a version using the shirred top "hack" from the Closet Core blog, and I also used the waist down section of the pattern to make myself a supremely comfy pair of wide leg elastic waist capris. I constantly get compliments when I wear the items I made from this pattern. My only wish is that they had a D cup version as well so I didn't have to do a FBA. But I got through it with the help of a few blogs. This pattern easily becomes a wardrobe staple.
I bought a jumpsuit from retail four years ago on a whim. I have been mostly nomadic so I have to fit my entire wardrobe in a 35 liter backpack so I am very picky about what makes the cut. When my jumpsuit wore out after four years of heavy rotation I was panicked that I would never find something so versatile again. Then I found the Amy pattern. Spending several months in one place with a sewing machine I made three different versions of Amy, and feel confident I have my source for magical jumpsuits of the future. My third version has already been to three continents and four countries.
The pattern is easy, sews up quick, takes alterations with ease. I had from take in the middle seam as the shoulder straps have a tendency to slide off when I sit. I took in the legs a bit just to cut down on bulk (for fitting in my backpack) but kept them roomy enough to not change the shape I love. My chest to hip ratio made it so I never needed to install a zipper, even when I took in the center seam. I am still adjusting strap length and width for optimal stay-upness.
This pattern will serve my jumpsuit addiction for years to come.
