Kwik Sew 3678
Jumpsuit jacket and pants. I made view A.
I cut the size medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very much so!!! No disappointments here.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how easy it was to assemble the jacket and pants. The pattern pieces fit together perfectly! I love how most of it was constructed on my serger. It really doesn't take more than a day to put both pieces together. There's only 11 steps for the jacket and 8 for the pants. Super easy!
A stretch polyester velour in navy.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
*I omitted the pants pocket
*I added clear elastic to stabilize the jacket shoulders
*I used stay tape to stabilize the zipper.
*I added 3" to the hem.
*I used my coverstitch machine to finish the jacket edge and the pants and sleeve hems.
*Future alteration: Next time I make it I'll be sure remove at least 1" to 1.5" from the crotch length and taper the pants legs from the hips to the hem. When I make this alteration I'll add more to the hem to compensate.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, yes, and yes! I have some stretch black velour that I plan to use with this pattern.
This is a stylish and comfortable jumpsuit. A nice addition to any wardrobe:)
