I am thrilled to be sharing my newest pattern, the Rory Jumpsuit, with you guys. I am releasing it today as a pdf, but the printed patterns are in the works and I will be selling those as well as soon as they are in stock. (Check my Instagram account for updates on that.)

The Rory has four views, so lots of options depending on your preference. There are shorts versions with an approximated 3 inch inseam and also tapered pants options that hit just above the ankle. In either the pants or shorts versions you can choose to do a sleeveless jumpsuit that is finished with bias tape, or an extended sleeve with a sleeve band.

The jumpsuit has a relaxed princess seam on both the front and back which not only makes it super easy for fit adjustments if necessary, but it also gives you the option to add 3/4″ D ring ties into the seams to accentuate the waistline.

Patch pockets are also added into the princess seams with topstitching that mimics the rest of the jumpsuit.

As with all of my women’s patterns, the Rory is drafted for someone who is 5’5″ tall, but there are two sets of markings to help with adjustments if necessary.

My favorite fabric to use for this pattern is definitely linen or linen blends because the texture and look of linen pairs so nicely with this style and for wearing in the hot summer months. But really any medium weight woven fabric is great. I have used silk noil, rayon challis, and chambrays with great success.

I will be having a sewalong with the Rory very soon for those who want a little extra help. I will be talking fabric and notions later this week, but actual sewing starts next Monday, June 4th and extends through the week. I also have two really great hacks planned right after that which I am dying to show you.

I hope you love it!

    Oh, my! This is so great! And in linen or a linen blend like Essex. Perfect. Can’t wait to sew this one. Congratulations on another great pattern.

      thanks beth! I love it in Essex because the rayon keeps the linen from being too scratchy or wrinkly.

    Wow, I can’t believe I just found out about this. Ugh!
    Will you be helping out with fit? I can do a princess seam FBA, but the added dread is it’s a one piece. What am I going to do with my swayback, big bubble butt, small waist, oddly square/broad shoulders that would make a linebacker blush?
    I’m thinking about using a stretch woven to cut back on fit, but I’d love drape. I want to use a tencel so badly, but they never stretch.
    I do have a stretch double crepe! Hmmm…

    I know I’m late to the game here, but I am also interested in how to do an FBA. I fit in a size 12 everywhere except the bust, I need an additional 2.5 inches there. I’ve been trying to do a princess seam fba but then blending it to the waist doesn’t look good. Of course this is the first fba I’m trying. If you are still reading the comments on this post please help.
