Cozy pajama jumpsuit perfect for testing in! Modelled after Chell's Portal 1 jumpsuit.
orange and white fleecel fabric (used about 11/2 yards of orange for myself, but I am short!)
orange and white thread
orange zipper (length depends on how long your torso is)
small rectangular scrap of cotton and iron on transfers (or an Aperture patch)
poster board or cardstock
references of Chell's Portal jumpsuit (I googled Portal jumpsuit and Chell to get some)
white bias tape or piping (optional for the details on the pockets and sleeve/back details. I just used strips of the white fleece)
Thank you so much for voting these into the Game Life and Fashion Contest Finalists! Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!
Step 1: Fitting the Jumpsuit
1. I used an old pair of footie pajamas to get a basic shape down. Since this is lounge wear, I wanted it to be pretty loose. You need to cut two pieces on the fold. To get the right length you will need to measure from your collar bone to past your knee to get an approximate size. It's better to err on the size of too big, since it's easier to resize it smaller.
2. Once you've cut out the basic shape for the jumpsuit, pin the tops of the shoulder seams and try them on. You'll want to keep fitting the jumpsuit on yourself to get your desired fit. Sew up the shoulder seams with the insides facing each other.
3. Sew the back seam part of the way down and try on the jumpsuit again. Pin the legs up to where the crotch of the jumpsuit will be. This is the best time to get the fit right.
