Poppy Playsuit Goes Long


I haven’t had a chance to make myself a Poppy Playsuit yet and as the sample lives at the shop I thought it was about time I made myself one.

The only problem is I am not a big fan of my bare legs. So I decided to make a long version!

I used my Ultimate Trousers as a starting point, laying them over the top of the short pieces of the playsuit. It didn’t help massively as the crotch seams are different shapes and the playsuit is a lot looser but it gave me something to work with.

I wanted the long playsuit legs to be relatively wide but not quite as wide as the shorts so I narrowed them a bit. I also needed to raise the crotch a little as it made my legs look really short! Next time I will raise it even further I think as I still think it isn’t quite right.


Overall I am chuffed with it. It is the coolest thing to wear on a hot summer’s day, feels like you’re wearing nothing. And how nice it is to be in something unfitted for a change.

Are you guys interested in making the longer version? Thinking I might add it as an option to the class and then when we get round to releasing the pattern it will also be included then. Would love to hear your thoughts….
