Now we get to share what turned out to be one of our favorite patterns from the Project Lounge Library collection, the Journal Jumpsuit. We sewed up two versions of this fun little pattern for our contributions to the Project Lounge Library lookbook.
Special thanks to Kalli June Photography for the beautiful photography of my kids in this post.
The first version of the Journal Jumpsuit that we sewed was for our Never Leaving Neverland “story.” Baby was slated to play the part of one of the lost boys, and he needed a cherubic outfit for the role. To tell you the truth, we didn’t think we were going to like this pattern very much…it just didn’t seem to be our style. And then we put in on Baby, and immediately had a Journal Jumpsuit crush!
The Journal Jumpsuit pattern can be sewn in 16 sizes from newborn to 14. The Journal Jumpsuit is every kids dream of easy one piece dressing! Slip into this jumpsuit through the neckline – either a lower back neckline, or a henley-style placket with or without hood. There are ankle, knee, or shortie length options. Additionally, optional kangaroo pocket or square patch pockets at the side seam can be added.
We sewed Baby an ankle version with a hood and kangaroo pocket. This organic cotton jersey fabric is Arctic Fox in Pebble from the Tundra line of fabrics at Hawthorne Supply Co. It is super soft and will last a very long time. For the contrasting hood/placket binding, armhole binding and ankle cuffs, we used some olive green rayon jersey from our stash. The two little wood buttons add just the right statement to this jumpsuit!
The other Journal Jumpsuit we sewed was for our Ode to Eric Carle layout. Baby again received the most adorable jumpsuit! We used some waffle knit from our stash to sew this one, and it’s the most comfortable little thing ever! We just had to add the Read, Read, Read, Read, Read graphic to the front in ALLLLLLL different colors! Because owe wanted the graphic to be very large, we left off the kangaroo pocket this time. We still did the hooded version in ankle length. We’ll definitely be sewing more of these!
