Make a DIY jumpsuit

Cut out your fabric

Lay your fabric down flat and then fold it over so the right sides are touching. Fold your jeans in half and lay them over the fabric, along the fold. Your legs should be beside each other and folded to your desired length. Use some tailor’s chalk to trace the outline of the jeans. When you reach the waistband of the jeans, extend the length until your chest. (To find this measurement, measure the length from your waist to your chest and transfer it over to the fabric). Cut out your fabric with a quarter-inch seam allowance.

Build the body

With your first two pieces cut out, use them to cut out two more pieces. You now have a front and back piece for each leg. Place your fabric’s right sides together and pin from the crotch to the top. Sew the pinned areas using a zigzag stitch. Place your two sewn pieces together, right sides together, and pin. Sew using a zigzag stitch.

Attach the elastic 

Measure your chest and then cut your elastic to fit. Sew the short edges together to form a circle. Turn your elastic band over to the wrong side and then pin all around the top edge (the pin on the inside of the jumpsuit, touching the fabric). Make sure to align the side seam of the elastic with the side seam of the jumpsuit. Sew with a zigzag stitch, as close to the edge as possible (from the inside). To finish, topstitch the elastic to help it lay flat.
