Anitra Jumpsuit Pattern Review – Style Sew Me Blog Tour

Anitra Jumpsuit Pattern Review

Hello everyone!  In today’s DIY blog post, I am honored to be joining a group of amazing seamstresses in sewing the new Anitra Jumpsuit by Eryn of Style Sew Me.  Eryn contacted me with an invitation to join the Blog Tour in showcasing her newest pattern, and I was happy to accept.  Check out my pattern review for the jumpsuit below.

I’m especially excited about this because Style Sew Me Patterns is an Indie Pattern Company, and I’m looking to sew more patterns from independent pattern designers this year.  If you missed my post about Indie Pattern Companies, you may see it HERE.  In that post I’ve included a list of more independent pattern designers.

Thank you, Eryn, for the opportunity to join the Blog Tour.  I love your jumpsuit.

Anitra Jumpsuit Pattern Review

Pattern Description:  Pull-on, loose-fitting jumpsuit with semi-wide neckline, elastic waist, gathered pant, side pockets, and wrap harem pant for ultimate comfort and style.

Pattern Sizing:  Available in sizes XS – 3X ( I cut size Medium)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  Yes, it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow?  Yes, the instructions were pretty straight forward.  However, if you’re a new beginner and need more guidance or are a visual learner, Eryn has a Sew-Along Video on her YouTube channel that shows you how to sew the jumpsuit from beginning to end.  It’s a very easy construction and can be sewn in just one day.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  I’m not really a fan of the harem-style pant, but when I saw Eryn wearing the jumpsuit on her pattern envelope, I was intrigued.  I like the simple construction, but most of all, I LOVE the comfort of the garment.

Fabric Used: I used a jersey knit from my stash that I picked up from the Michael Levine Loft.  I also think it looks amazing in the ITY fabric that Eryn used on the pattern envelope.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  I did not make any changes to the pattern.

Would you sew it again?  Would you recommend it to others?  I would consider sewing this one again with an ITY fabric.  I would definitely recommend it to others.

Conclusion:  I like the way the jumpsuit looks on me.  When my oldest son saw me wearing it he said, “Mom, that looks good.”  My sons usually tell me I look nice in my new outfits and it makes me smile.  They’re getting good practice for complimenting their wives in the future.

This is a nice, versatile piece and would be such a comfortable wear for a movie date or running errands around town, wearing flats of course.

    Love it Anita! I wasn’t sure about the harem-style pants either, but I think it was worth the try. You look very sophisticated! When I saw you in your hat, I alnost styled my with a hat to match mine. Maybe when I actually wear it I will. Kudos to you, you look fabulous!

    Hello. What does ITY stand for? I clicked the link but doesn’t say 😊

      Hi JC! It stands for Interlock Twist Yarn. It’s a method that’s used to create the fabric which gives it elasticity.

    Anita! Ur ROCKING this outfit 😍. Ur making me want to sew this. I’m terrified of sewing with knit but I think I’m gonna have to get past the fear and just do it.

      Yes DeAnna! Just DO it! It’s really not that difficult and knits are so comfortable.

        Do you have a YouTube tutorial on sewing knits that you recommend? I was looking for material and 2 way – 4 way stretch 😳 has me confused. Thx!

          Hi Deanna! I don’t have a particular YT tutorial on sewing knits that I can recommend. I would say just type in that title and see what comes up.

          Yes, the 2-way/4-way issue can be very confusing. There is some debate within the community too, so it’s hard to determine the difference. Here’s what I’ve learned:

          1-Way Stretch: Fabric stretches on the crosswise grain with no return
          2-Way Stretch: Fabric stretches on the crosswise grain and returns
          4-Way Stretch: Fabric stretches on the crosswise and lengthwise grain and returns

          All fabric has diagonal stretch, called the bias.

          I think the confusion is due to the fact that not all vendors define these terms in the same way. Some say that 2-Way & 4-Way are the same. Some fabric companies define the stretch type differently than the pattern companies. For example: if a pattern calls for a 2-Way Stretch fabric and you purchase a fabric that says 2-Way, but it stretches in both directions, you could have a problem in your finished garment based on the style that you’re sewing.

          To test your fabric, just pull it in both directions. Pull it in the crosswise and lengthwise directions. If you get stretch and return in both directions then it’s 4-Way Stretch. If one direction only, then it’s 2-Way Stretch. At least this is how I understand it. I hope this helps you to understand it better.

          You can also google the terms to see what others have to say about it.
