Sewing pattern tutorial: the Cosmopolitan playsuit/dress

Combining an ultra comfortable cut and a very elaborate construction, the Cosmopolitan sewing pattern allows you to sew a playsuit or a dress that has a unique look and lots of pretty details:

  • Pleats and inserts that will gently redefine the silhouette, playing on volumes and proportions, and pockets for style and comfort when worn

  • A very flattering V-shaped front and back neckline, with 2 neckline depths to wear your Cosmopolitan alone (the small neckline version is bra compatible), with a small top, or over a swimsuit

  • The possibility of sewing a dress or playsuit

  • Impeccable finishes as the bust is fully lined, and the invisible zip is neatly finished.

The beautiful Cosmopolitan will be precious in tweed or jacquard, all fabrics in a medium-weight like gabardine, elegant and timeless in tailored wool.

The technical points covered in this free step-by-step sewing video are to:

  • Sew classic and hollow darts

  • Sew hidden pockets into a yoke

  • Lining a bust

  • Sew an invisible zip

  • Assemble shorts and add them to the playsuit

Happy sewing!
