I'm somewhat new to sewing, but I feel like I'm ready to take on a real task: a playsuit. I've been looking all over for a pattern, but I can't find anything that looks like this:


I love how it's high-waisted and doesn't have elastic at the hip, like most rompers do. HELP???  Roll Eyes

How about combining a couple of patterns? There's this pair of shorts from Thunderlily on BurdaStyle:


I think it's a flat waistband because the notions include an 8 to 10 inch zipper.

You can combine it with a cute top like Anna or Afternoon Tea:


Anna has a front zip, Afternoon Tea has a back zip, so you'll have to finagle both your top and bottom to get the zipper in the same seam. That will eliminate the need for an elastic waistband.

All three patterns are one-size, so you'll have to do some measuring and redrafting to get them to fit perfectly. It's not REALLY hard if you are persistent and measure very carefully. Don't be afraid to screw up! That's how you learn to avoid mistakes in the future Cheesy Just go slow and make a trial-run in a crappy fabric like a second-hand bed sheet.

You can do it!
