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.
