Sewn: Paper Theory Zadie Jumpsuit
|Sewn shown seated - too bad my eyes are closed!
I decided to use a facing to finish the front opening, just to see if I preferred it over the binding used in the pattern. I had to piece the facing as it is such a dramatic S shape, but I'm happy with the result. I like how the binding looks, but I appreciate the stability the facing provides. Even though I stay stitched the front opening before handling the pieces, they did stretch a bit, and using the facing as a guide to steam them back into the correct length was helpful. And I found it gave a neater finish where the waist ties are attached. Speaking of ties, I cut a strip the entire length of my fabric, so they are about 6" longer than drafted.
