Mara Jade black bodysuit pattern


Recommended Posts

Hello folx! I am reaching out to see if anyone has a pattern for Mara Jade's black bodysuit and would like to share any reviews on how hard it was to make! Finding patterns and altering them has always been challenging for me.

I made my Mara bodysuit! It was not super difficult but it is really going to depend on how comfortable you are with altering. Maybe ask someone in your garrison to assist? I based my template off of the McCall's M7217, if you look at that pattern you may think I'm crazy because the front is split down the middle and has princess seams...but it worked out after moving around some of the seams. I transferred the pattern to a heavy paper, taping the center front pieces together, the leg pieces to the coordinating side-front/ side-back pieces, and the side-back to center-backs. Putting the main parts of the bodysuit together was simple but I struggled with getting the diamond shape on the front to sit right. I ended up attaching the diamond with piping like an applique. The other stuff is pretty simple but if you have any specific questions feel free to reach out!

Here is a good reference for the method I used.
