The Jesse Jumpsuit cut is relaxed but not oversized. The torso is cut to finish just above the hip with the elasticated waistband pulling it up to sit on your waist. The overall rise is elongated with the back rise slightly more baggy than fitted, leaving enough room for the fabric to skim the hips and thighs.

Construction techniques: Welt pocket, french seam side pockets, collar with neck facing, full sleeve, elasticated waistband, mock fell seams, topstitching details and optional zip fastening.
Suitable fabrics: When choosing your fabric for the Jesse Jumpsuit you need to consider a few things. It should be very comfortable and breathable to wear as it covers your whole body (not itchy or scratchy). It’s a nice idea to choose natural fibres to allow your body to breath and the shape of this pattern benefits from having a fabric that is soft and supple with a bit of drape.
Suitable fabrics include light/medium denim, light/medium twill, light weight canvas, needlecord, wool suiting, linen (beware as linen will crease heavily).
Fabric requirements: Our lay-plans are always done on a single layer of fabric to reduce wastage.
Materials list: Self fabric, fabric for pocket bags & binding - a 40cm strip of lightweight cotton (any width of fabric), 4 x buttons (around 1.5/2cm)or 3 x buttons (around 1.5/2cm) and 16-18cm zip, elastic (roughly 3cm wide), thread in a colour of your choice and about 80cm of good quality fusing
