Neale jumpsuit Hack Kit

Making clothing you love to wear is about having the ability to tailor garments to fit your body, your preferences and your needs. This is why, for Issue 2 of Curated by ITF, we are sharing the foundations of patternmaking with you.

For this issue of Curated by ITF, you will receive the Neale jumpsuit Hack Kit. This is a jam-packed resource that will get you started with information about patternmaking tools and some of the most used patternmaking techniques. Then, the skills are applied to four different pattern hacks, so you can give all your new skills a go and gain some confidence by working through the patterns. The hacks have been designed so that no matter what your patternmaking experience is, there will be something for you. More details about each individual hack can be found below.

One of the challenges of pattern hacking is that you no longer have instructions for how to make the garment. We've solved this problem by including a construction resource, that goes through everything from working out fabric yardage, order of construction for the hacks and then does a deep dive into specific dressmaking techniques.

Please note: This listing does not include access to the Neale jumpsuit pattern. You will receive the Neale jumpsuit Hack Kit, which provides instructions and supporting tutorials to create 4 new patterns, all from the Neale jumpsuit pattern. If you would like to purchase the Neale jumpsuit pattern, be sure to pick up Issue 1 of Curated by ITF.

Please note: This product can only be purchased by Current Curated by ITF subscribers. If you would like to sign-up you can do so here.

Neale jumpsuit with straight neckline

The Neale jumpsuit with straight neckline has the same fit as the original Neale jumpsuit. The neckline is changed for a different look and feel. Due to the design, the zip is moved to the centre back seam, removing the need for a shoulder opening. The jumpsuit has bust darts, narrow straps, in-seam pockets and an all-in-one facing to create a clean finish on the neckline and armholes.

The optional belt pattern piece can be used from the original pattern to change the silhouette of the jumpsuit.

Skills you will learn

  • Altering the neckline of a pattern
  • Drafting a new facing

Neale elastic waist pants
