New Pattern Release! The Farris Jumpsuit & Playsuit, A to F cups, sizes 6-34

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Chic and confident, fun and playful, the Farris Jumpsuit and Playsuit is perfect for any occasion, dressed up with statement earrings & heels, or played cool and casual with ballet flats or sneakers.

It's time to introduce the Farris Jumpsuit & Playsuit (or romper, if that's what you'd like to call it!), the next pattern in the Quincy/Mayberry mix'n'match sewing set.

Become your own designer by switching out tops and bottoms between all three patterns, creating an almost endless mix of perfect dresses, jumpsuits and playsuits to match your own taste and wardrobe needs.

Farris comes in both the Original and Curve size ranges, from 6 to 34 in A to cups, up to a hip size 159.5cm or 62 3/4".

AND there are two back pant patterns included in the JLH Curve pattern set - perfect if you find you need more room in the seat.

Pattern Details

With it's cute grown-on sleeves, gently V neckline and angled bust darts, Farris oozes confidence and playfulness, as well as a bit of sophistication thrown in for good measure.

Choose the short pant legs to make a fun playsuit/romper, or use the long, wide-legged pants to make the elegant jumpsuit option. Drafted for a height of 170cm/5'7", the pant falls straight down from the hip, with the short ending mid-thigh and the long leg falling to just above the ground - meaning you can wear flats confidently, knowing you won't end up dragging the back of your jumpsuit hem on the ground.

Comfort comes first, with Farris sporting the same drawstring waistline as her sisters, the Quincy & Mayberry dresses. Add in all-in-one pockets, and you've got the perfect pattern to play around with loud prints, soft colours and everything in between.

Dress Farris up with statement earrings, made in black linen or champagne coloured silk, or keep it cool and casual made in denim or rayon teamed with tennis shoes or ballet flats for the weekend.

The Farris Jumpsuit & Playsuit if perfect for wearing year-round as well! Layer up with long sleeves underneath (a Vielle or Ostara top work perfectly), and to make your playsuit winter-worthy, pop some colourful tights on underneath and throw a chunky cardigan on top for the perfect transitional garment.

Skill Level

Farris is designed for confident seamstresses looking to up-skill. Techniques covered include buttonholes, making an enclosed drawstring casing and sewing in bust darts.

I've also included bonus instructions for adding in a centre back invisible zip if you have wider/fuller shoulders, and need additional room to release the neckline in order to more easily take off your garment.


Farris includes both the Original and Curve size ranges. The Original includes sizes 6 to 24 with A to D cup bodices and the Curve includes sizes 16-34 with C to F cup bodices.

The E+F Curve bodices are shaped with two parallel side bust darts to smoothly shape the bust, while the A to D cup bodices (across both size ranges) are shaped with a single bust dart.

Due to the style of Farris, if your hip size is more than one size bigger than your waist, you should size up in the waist as well in order to fit the garment over your hips. Any additional waist ease will be cinched in with the drawstring closure.

The Curve pattern also includes two back pant options, Regular and Plus. If you generally find you need more room in the seam of your trousers, the Plus pant includes a higher back rise, a fuller curve over the buttocks and a longer crotch curve. More info is included in the pattern instructions.

PLUS, Extra Finished Garment Measurements included...

If you're worried about choosing a size, I've also included a whole bunch of additional Finished Garment Measurements. As well as the usual bust, waist and hips you'll find bicep circumference, to in-seam leg and crotch lengths to bodice length etc. Simply compare these measurements to a similar garment you already like the fit of (or one you know you'd like to alter) and you'll be surprised at how much for the hard stuff is already done.

You can read about the new sizing here.

What about the Quincy and Mayberry Dress patterns in the Curve sizes?

They will be here for early 2021 and I promise will be worth the wait. I did try to get them ready for a release a bit closer to the Farris pattern being ready, but alas, they deserve the time and attention to get them right, rather than being rushed out the door when they're not quite ready. They'll be here soon...

Fabric Options

The Farris Jumpsuit & Playsuit is suitable for a wide range of lightweight woven fabric with some drape.

Rayon, silks, crepes and other slinky fabric suit Farris perfectly - Tatenda is wearing the Curve playsuit option in rayon.

You can also choose any of your favourite fabrics from cotton lawn, voile and poplin to linen, chambray, denim and suitings, or even a pinwale corduroy (baby cord). I'm wearing the Original jumpsuit option in a light-weight denim.

As you can see in the samples, denim lends a much more structured appearance to the garment, even though it's a light-weight denim. Where as the rayon has a much smoother, more draped look.

Meet the Models

In the Meet the Models section on the Farris Jumpsuit & Playsuit listing, you can find model information like their measurements, the size and block (Original or Curve) they are wearing, as well as any pattern adjustments made to suit their individual bodies.
