Pleats And Thank You Jumpsuit Virtual Workshop

Pleated at the shoulder, relaxed throughout the body, this jumpsuit has got you covered through all activities during your day.

Shoulder pads lift this pattern into a sophisticated, modern wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down. Featuring a classic crew neck and a long keyhole opening at the center back, this sweet pattern is a joy to sew and wear. Ready to sew the perfect jumpsuit? Don’t mind if I do, Pleats And Thank You.
