I finally finished my playsuit, just in time for the end of summer! I used McCall’s 6331
I actually wanted to make a matching skirt to make it a vintage inspired playsuit ensemble.
I switched out the zipper closure in the pattern for bound buttonholes.

The blue and white polka dot fabric was super shear so I underlined the whole thing with lightweight white cotton. the bodice is additionally lined with a solid blue cotton that matches the polka dots, causing the overturned pieces on the bodice to contrast.

I think I can still wear my playsuit as long as it is still warm out (which it is).

Way more info about the making of this and this on my blog, Belle Clara
