Our super quick to make Jump Up Suit is designed for two-way stretch fabric. It is sleeveless with a fitted bodice and wide legs. It looks great on its own or over a fitted tee shirt, shirt or blouse. The neckline is an unusual square with a nip at the front and vee at the back. No need for a zip – just shimmy in and join the party. Fun fact – a ‘Jump Up’ is an impromptu Caribbean get together, with some beers, barbecue and music – we can’t think of a better outfit for such an event!

FIT
Close-fitting through the bust, waist and hips with wide straight legs from the hip down. The vertical darts from bust to hip can be easily adjusted to make a looser or tighter silhouette.

VARIATIONS
It would be easy to change the neckline, just remember it's your only point of entry and exit! Cut off at calf or thigh to make culottes or a summer playsuit. Jazz it up for cocktail hour with a fancy belt.

LEVEL
Easy peasy – if you’ve never made an all-in-one before this is a great place to start. This was a first jumpsuit for many of our testers and we have since christened it ‘The Jumpsuit Converter’! Just make sure you choose a nice stretchy fabric with a bit of weight to it. If you have an overlocker/serger now is the time to use it.

FABRIC
It is essential to use a stretch knit fabric for this design, preferably one with two-way stretch, meaning it stretches both lengthwise and widthwise. Look for one with some weight to it that won’t lose its shape easily – test it with your fist it should spring back into shape. A medium weight cotton, wool or man-made fibre jersey knit or rib would be perfect, some lycra content will help to retain the stretch. A Ponte de Roma would be an excellent choice as it's a stable knit that's easy to sew.

Based on fabric at least 140cm/55" wide you will need: sizes 6, 8, 10 – 1.6 metres/1 3/4 yards; sizes 12, 14, 16 – 2.5 metres/ 2 3/4 yards; sizes 18, 20, 22 – 3.1 metres/ 3 1/2 yards
