Sew Over It Poppy Playsuit

Hello peeps!

At last some sewing I can blog about without being top secret…. You’ll soon know what I’ve been up too!

Now, I originally cut this out back in August but other duties kept getting in the way of sewing and the kiddies were off School which doesn’t help concentration levels! ?

This was a freebie pattern from Issue 16 of Simply Sewing Magazine but Sew Over It has released this pattern in their shop with the option of full length pants if shorts aren’t your thing!


I was a little bit hesitant to try something new as I’ve never even tried a Playsuit! So I thought I would bite the bullet and just go for it and also it was my 1st Sew Over It pattern! Going through my stash, I couldn’t believe I haven’t used the ever so gorgeous Art Gallery Paparounes Crimson Jersey! Thankfully I just had enough at 2m!

Withhaving a good read of the sizing and instructions, I’d thought it’d be best to make up the 12-14 according to measurements.  So with the paper pattern pieces cut out and starting to pin and cut the fabric, who shows up and thinks ‘no mummy you must love me!’ But he is a handsome moggy!


Now this is a real quick easy make especially if your using jersey like I have as no need to finish the seams! Boom! Then to draw the waist in its just elastic and using the bodice and short seam allowance for the casing!

I didn’t put in the huge turn up hems like it shows in the instructions as I wasn’t keen on the amount of thigh on show! So I just made smaller ones on the legs and sleeves and to be honest I quite prefer the smaller hem.

With the nice sunshine out I thought I may as well look the part with the sandals and Sunnys! I was worried that it would fit right with myself being short! But you know what, I didn’t need to make any major adjustments just the smaller hems!

So go on peeps go and take yourself out of your comfort zone you may be really pleased you did like I have!
