Transform the Iris Wrap Pants into a Jumpsuit!
Have you seen that amazing jumpsuit yet? The one where you slip the bodice over your head and then tie and wrap the pants around your body? Yeah! That’s the one. 5 out of 4 Patterns recently released the Iris Wrap Shorts, Capris and Pants, and I could NOT get it out of my head to make them into that jumpsuit. So I did! I took photos of the process and now you can do it too.
What you will need:
Iris Wrap Shorts, Capris, and Pants Pattern
Key West Bikini, Tankini, and Dress Pattern
Woven fabric (or a knit if you wish) for your size of Iris Pants
1/2-1 yard of KNIT fabric with at least 25% horizontal stretch for the bodice portion.
And of course, the instructions! You can find the instructions in this handy downloadable PDF!

Hi there, I am a newbie sewist so please forgive the ignorant question! Would this work with other tank/tankini tops too e.g. the new Peggy tankini? I am not keen on the lace up/open back of the Key West but LOVE this idea!

I would think no because the back isn’t open. Maybe Rachelle will reply!

I’m quite sure you could hack different styles to fit, but the thing to remember is that the pants have no side seams so your top cannot either. You also need to be able to step into it like any other jumpsuit, so the neckline needs to be stretchy enough to accommodate that. I hope that makes sense!
