Whitney from Sew Whit: Indigo Separates Hack

 When I found out the Indigo was the feature pattern of the month over at Project Run and Play I was super excited to try it! Rompers/Jumpsuits are all the rage right now and I love the look! The one issue I have is they are a bit tricky for bathroom breaks. So I decided to hack the Indigo so we could have the look of the romper with the ease of separates.

With minimal modifications I created 3 different looks with one pattern. I used a light/medium weight Olive Green Rib knit from my stash. Perfect for fall.

For the top I lengthened the bodice to be long enough to be a tuck in tee and then raised and rounded the neckline. I banded the neckline and cuffed the long sleeves.

For the pants I knew I wanted to do a paper bag waist. I compared the length of the pattern to an existing pair of pants and conveniently, because of the high waist on the pattern I didn't have to add anything. I cut the pattern without any alterations and then folded down 2.25" stitch near the edge of the folded length and leave an opening for a casing. then stitch again 1" from the top of the fold all the way around. I added 1" elastic and stitched up the casing.

And there we have it! The pieces can be worn separate or together for a romper look. Join us over in the facebook group for the Indigo Sew Along. You can grab your pattern over here. Its $3 off with a discount code in the newsletter. Enter your make for a free pattern!
