Pleats And Thank You Jumpsuit Virtual Workshop – Live Recordings

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.
