Ankara Jumpsuit with Versatility Fabric Elastic


So I made this Ankara Jumpsuit with Versatility Fabric Elastic last week and of course rocked it to work. Let me say I looked awesome in it and it was extremely easy to make.I used the following Measurements

1) Back – 16

2) Neck – 4

3) Sleeve length/circumference  – 18/10

4) Upper bust length/ circumference- 8/40

5) Bust- length / circumference-11/42

6) Under Bust length/circumference 15/38

7) Waist length/circumference -18/36

8) Hip length/circumference -22/44

9) Thigh circumference – 22

10) knee circumference- 16

11 ) full length/ circumference  – 50/10

Step 1.

I started with my back bodice. My bust circumference is 42.i divided the 42 into 2 for my front and back bodice.42 ÷ 2 = 21

For the back block, I have 21 inches plus 2.5 for zip and when cutting I have 23.5 on fold by my half length or waist length.

half length or waist length is 18.when cutting I cut 19 for seam on the shoulder and waist joining.

So from the above picture I placed my fabric on fold and cut out 23.5 by 19 for my back.

at this stage I cut out the desired neck line as well as sleeve.also I mark out my dart leg.

My finished cut looks like this.

Steps 2

I cut out my front bodice. Sorry I forgot to take the picture while I was working but not to worry on another tutorial I will explain that in at the end I have there the regular 3 piece cut for the front. I also had adequate seam allowance too.

Step 3

The trousers

My full length for this design is 50.already I have 18 inches for my bodice. 50 – 18 = 32

So my trousers and bad length should fall between that 32inch

To cut my trouser I folded my fabric into 4.

My hip is 44. That 44 ÷ 4 = 11

Then I added 3 inch to each 11 for side seams = 13 in 4 folds (eg 2 for the front block 2 for the back block)

In the above picture I have I have

13 ×4 by 30 inches length plus 1 inch for the seam on the waist and the leg so I can add my 2inch band.

Next, I measure out 3 by  14 for my crotch depth. See picture below.

Here is how I mark it out.see picture above. at this stage I cut it out

Here is what it looks like when I spread all the cuts out for the front block.

Here is the breast pad I added to the bust area for support.

At this stage I added the sleeve….and I was considering making it as a cold shoulder design but I later changed my mind and went for the regular sleeve.

Step 4

I sewed all the pieces together not forgetting my bands at the sleeve and leg area. I didn’t want it heavy so I did not line it at all. I added the zip at the back and finished the neckline with piping.

The day I rocked it. I was wondering what shoe I should wear on it. Until I finally agreed on the all stars and it turned out to be a stunner. I know this because everywhere I went to that day people kept commending the design. ?
