Bodysuit dress sewing pattern

yellow bodsuit

I’m doing a rogue release prior to the collection I’m designing right now.  This pattern has been a popular request for a while so I’m happy to say I finally got it done for you all!

It’s a basic bodysuit dress with a long sleeve and short sleeve option.  I didn’t choose the typical envelope neck because the skirt adds interest and I didn’t want it to look too busy.

That’s why I decided to do the single shoulder snap opening.  I love the final look and love that I can pair it with pants underneath!

    Great design! Which pattern was used for the pants? 🙂

    • It’s a new one that I’m working on. A harem pant with no ankle cuffs 🙂

    Ok, I started sewing this bodysuit and it seems that following the pattern instructions for the shoulder seams (snaps on one shouolder), you end up with one shoulder shorter than the other. I hope this will make sence….It seems like cutting off the 1/2″ on the back, sewing the stabilizer on both front and back peices, then turning and top stitching – they are the same length as the other shoulder when seamed 1/4″, but you have to overlap to apply snaps, which makes that side shorter ????
    Normal shoulder has 1/4″ seam – takes 1/2″ off length
    Snap shoulder has 1/2′ cut off back, stabilizers sewn on at 1/4′ and turned under, but then need to be overlapped – stabilizers sewn at 1/4″ and turned takes the 1/2″ off length….where do you get the length for the overlap for snaps ???

      Oh brother, I think I just figured it out!! The instructions go from cutting the 1/2″ off to putting the stabilizers on (I kept working on that side)…..not on the side you cut off you dope!
