Now this pattern M6083 has been on deck for awhile. I was a little afraid to tackle it because I wasn't sure how it would fair on me and the fact that it is a jump suit. But it turned out pretty nice and I received plenty of comments at the event I wore it to.

Pattern Description: Jumpsuits that have side front pockets, elastic casings and stitched hem.

Pattern Sizing: (14-20) I chose the size 20

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes, I think so.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really liked the outcome of the pattern. I did not like all the altering I had to do to the pattern.

Fabric Used: Poly knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I had to alter the waist and hips, crotch, and added 1 1/2' to the bodice lenght. I also used 1/2" and 3/8" seam allowance in different areas throughout the garment.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this patten again and I also recommend it.

Conclusion: I was very happy with the end result of this pattern.

I have not worn this jumpsuit in a year.  I decided to wear it to a comedy show.  Since my weight loss I had to do some alterations to it.  I altered the front cross area and the crotch area.  This is how my alterations turned out and what it looks like now on me.

Nice job! I made this one a while back, View A. It has since then been acquired by my sister. I promise, I need to lock my house down when my sister's visit!

I'm making this for the first time and am searching for everyone' sinput on the pattern. It looks great on you both before and after the weight loss!

Congrats on your hard work!

You look great in both before and after! I'm plus size and was hesitating about trying this pattern but you've just convinced me to give it a go!
