Alexa jumpsuit or playsuit sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons

ALEXA JUMPSUIT OR PLAYSUIT - DIGITAL

Regular price £11.50

MAKE YOUR OWN JUMPSUIT OR PLAYSUIT

With modern details and a flattering shape, you’ll feel as cool as a cucumber in this jumpsuit or playsuit. Alexa has a button-front bodice with curved V-neckline and subtle forward shoulder seam, blousy waist cinched in with an external waist channel and tie, choice of jumpsuit or playsuit lengths, with easy fitting peg-style trousers on the jumpsuit version.

Add the optional pleated flap pockets and rolled sleeve tabs for a utility look, or leave them off if you want your fabric to do the talking. Whether you wear it for work, rest or play, you’ll feel proud as punch in your homemade Alexa jumpsuit or playsuit!

Like all Tilly and the Buttons patterns, Alexa comes with jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

If you want to add pockets to the Alexa jumpsuit or playsuit, you can use our free in-seam pocket pattern piece with instructions!
