Mommy and Daughter Jumpsuits - Home & Family


To create the shape of the pattern use craft paper and a pair of sweatpants. Hold sweat pants to your body and measure the distance from the waist line to the neck. Fold sweat pants in half and trace their shape onto craft paper. Add the top half using the measurements you took from the waist line to the neck. Once you have the shape fold your fabric in fours and pin pattern onto fabric along the fold.

1) Cut pattern out of material

2) Take pins out and you should have two matching pieces of material

3) On one piece of material cut off a portion at the top to create an open back (OPTIONAL)

4) In front, fold down one inch to create casing for strap and pin in place (and later sew along the line)

5) Pin both pieces of material together along the edges

6) Sew around edges

7) Take pins out and turn inside out

8) Press open all seams with an iron so it lays flat

9) Feed drawstring through drawstring casing to create straps
