A Bodysuit (Sponsored Post)


Somehow I managed to develop a love for bodysuits this year. I’ve been making them as there’s no tomorrow. That’s how I ended up making one when I chose what to make for the Minerva Blogger Network for December.

Sewing Summary:

Pattern: Simplicity 8789 – Misses’ bodysuit blouses with a knit bottom feature a snap-crotch closure, front and sleeve variations, and gathers to give you that perfect tucked-in look.

Sizing: US XS-XL, European XP – XG or French TP- TG

Fabric: 1.3 m oriental fish print cotton poplin and 0.5 m back jersey

Notions: 6 buttons, 2 snaps, 1.2 m elastic (1cm wide), interfacing,

Modifications: I made view D and cut a US size Small. I shortened the sleeves by 5 cm. I used a different method to finish off the panties opening – Closet Case’s method used on Nettie bodysuit.

Disclaimer: I was sent the supplies free of charge in exchange for an honest review. The opinions in the post are my own and not influenced in any way by Minerva and/or the manufacturers.
