Elysian Bodysuit by Friday Pattern Company

This project will forever be known as "the Lisa Frank bodysuit". I didn't see the connection until other people pointed it out, but I do now! And as a kid who was born in the 80's and lived through the 90's, obviously I love the reference. Ten year old me is so happy right now.

This is the Elysian Bodysuit from Friday Pattern Co. I made the whole bodysuit in one day, including pattern assembly. It's super fast and easy. I followed the size chart, making an XS in the bust and grading out to a M in the hips. The pattern is drafted for 5'6", I am 5'4", but I have a long torso. I made no changes to the length except that I shortened the crotch from the medium to the XS cut line. I also shortened the sleeve and didn't hem it.

There is a seam under the bust so you can color block, but I accidentally pattern-matched so well that it's hard to tell! This fabric is actually swim, from The Fabric Fairy! I bought it for my daughters and made two swimsuits (one was heartily rejected and has since be rehomed), you can see the suit that was accepted here.

Unlike other bodysuit's, the Elysian is meant to pull up and down through the neckline, so no tricky snap crotch to sew. Friday Pattern Co. does have a tutorial for that online if you want it though. If you don't have a bodysuit pattern in your arsenal yet, I can heartily recommend this one!

Have you hopped on the bodysuit train yet? You can see my Anouk Bodysuit here and my Madalynne Fenix Bodysuit blog post here. Will I stop at three bodysuits? 

I received this fabric for free as part of the Fabric Fairy promo team.
