    Ooh I’m not sure I’m a jumpsuit kind of person… Is Amanda (Sew Deputy) sewing two? I notice she appears twice in the list!

      Sorry Beth, not sure why I got that impression. I will take you off the list – albeit with a tear in my eye

      • Beth May 4, 2015 at 10:43 pm

        I’m not in the list! Another Beth is though! Haha. Confusing! I’m debating if I will be able to make one time-wise!

    Quite frankly I’m scared! No idea how I’m going to make this work, but let the research commence…

    i’d like to sign up please 🙂

    Although jumpsuits are not my ‘thing’, I’ll definitely watch-along! Enjoy!

    • Chris May 5, 2015 at 9:51 pm Reply

      And who knows, you might get so inspired you want to sew along as well. After all, many of us are reluctant jumpsuit novices 🙂

    This is hilarious, I love reading all the reluctant jumpsuit makers comments! The worst thing is that I now have pattern ideas in my head…can I make one from Lycra?

    • Chris May 5, 2015 at 9:47 pm Reply

      You can most certainly do that! Does that mean I can count you in? Team Lycra is yours for the taking!

      • berrold May 7, 2015 at 10:31 pm

        Why not! It’ll give me a reason to actually blog my sewing, I’ve been bad recently.

      • Chris May 7, 2015 at 11:30 pm

        You’re on the list! Excellent to have you aboard.

  7. Hannah Ackroyd May 5, 2015 at 9:05 am Reply

    Ooh this looks so much fun! Although I have never worn a jumpsuit in my life! Let me hunt around for patterns, if i find one that takes my fancy I’m definitely in! x

    • Chris May 5, 2015 at 9:47 pm Reply

      Hannah, that would be ace! Let me know once you are ready.

      • Hannah Ackroyd May 5, 2015 at 10:36 pm

        Tell you what, count me in! I like a challenge and since I’m also losing weight I have the challenge of making it and the challenge of losing some weight to wear it! I haven’t definitely decided on a pattern yet but I have found a few ideas. Is the idea to make the jumpsuit for June or throughout June? Sorry for the stupid question, I’ve probably overlooked it somewhere! x

      • Chris May 5, 2015 at 10:39 pm

        Fantastic Hannah. Do you know what: We haven’t really thougth about the timing question, so I’d say it’s sewing throughout June. So it’s basically two months – lots of time for inspiration!

      • Hannah Ackroyd May 5, 2015 at 10:53 pm

        Fab, thanks! It’s actually he fabric shopping part that is going to hold me up! The other half is away so it will be a couple of weekend before I can get out to get anything! Although I think I may have a pattern in mind so that is a start! x

  8. Helena May 6, 2015 at 12:48 am Reply

    I will! I already had one planned, so it will be perfect. Let’s jump into June!

    • Chris May 6, 2015 at 6:43 am Reply

      Yey! I will update the list as soon as I get a chance!

  9. Miranda May 7, 2015 at 4:17 pm Reply

    Man, I really want to be a jumpsuit person but they seem so scary…yet so comfortable…yet scary! Someone hold me.

    • Chris May 7, 2015 at 11:24 pm Reply

      Miranda, you know you want to, don’t you. Will I just put you on the list and out of your misery? 😉

      • Miranda May 7, 2015 at 11:56 pm

        I feel like I should just so I can tell my grandchildren some day about the incredible jumpsuit caper 😀

    Count me in! I’ve already played with a playsuit in May, which I can’t wait to share with the blogosphere very soon, and the pattern has a long trouser version, which is just screaming “Make me!!” So can’t say no, especially since my lovely Sewing bee buddies and friends, Amanda and Neela have also joined, let’s make it a 3 bee challenge :D!

    • Chris May 12, 2015 at 3:06 pm Reply

      Alex , your wish is my command! How could anyone say no to a 3 bee challenge 🙂
