Girl’s Back to School Easy Sewing Pattern: One Piece Jumpers Ginny Jumper and Penny Playtime

Girls Sewing Pattern

Introducing our two one piece jumpsuits for Girl’s sizes 5 to 12!  

These are intermediate patterns requiring very few notions.  They are intermediate for the fabric type which is sometimes difficult to work with.

For easiest sewing, try mid-weight stable double knits, like double ponte and some of the scuba knits made in a blend of poly/spandex, which will make it easier to work with.  Stay away from fabrics that fray.   Cotton interlock is very good and also organic cotton stable jerseys.  Spandex up to 5% will add some body to the fabric and keep it easy to work with.

The fabric requirements are under 2 yards and you can use the same fabric for the neck and armhole bias.  Alternatively, new sewists may like to purchase a matching bias tape for ease but it is difficult to find matching bias tape.  Try Etsy to see if they have some deals, or Amazon for premade.

Advanced sewists might try making their own from our pattern pieces.  It is not as easy as it looks to make and fit the bias tape, but we have videos on how to make and sew on the French bias tape on our paid site.

A light weight fabric of about 3-5oz is required because of the cuffs on the Penny Playtime Pattern.  Too heavy a fabric makes the gathering on the cuffs extremely difficult to join and to fit in the sewing machine.

Make sure you have a detachable arm surface, so that you can fit the cuff/leg combination around the arm to stitch a straight line.  If you do not have this ability on your machine, do not add the cuffs, but instead elongate the pant and sew a nice hem instead.

Hi! My name is Molly McGuire, and my number one passion is sewing. In fact, I've dedicated my entire life to it. When I was a little girl, I used to love watching my grandma work on her sewing machine. She could make anything. She made all the clothes for the entire family, and it was so amazing! Today, I continue my grandma's legacy by making clothes for our extended family and teaching proper sewing techniques to our students. I get a great deal of satisfaction from teaching others. Once again, thank you for visiting my blog and please feel free to reach out to me! I would love to hear from you! Enjoy! Molly
