How to Create a Facing for the Zadie Jumpsuit or Dress- Mini Tutorial
**Disclaimer All thoughts are my own and not endorsed by Paper Theory. I can not guarantee your facing will turn out or the measurements will be precise for your jumpsuit or dress. I only made the facing for the dress portion and can not guarantee the jumpsuit facing will work. I suggest creating a muslin first! These are my own experiences that I am sharing with you! Feel free to add or change anything to your liking.
I am sharing with you a simple way to create your own facing pattern pieces for the Zadie Jumpsuit/Dress. As stated above I only made the facing for the dress not the jumpsuit. Some steps will need to be modified for the jumpsuit and I can not guarantee it will work, because I haven’t tired it! However, I added that step in and you can give it a try for your self. I will be showing you only how to create the facing pattern pieces, and will only briefly discus how to attach it to the bodice.
The facing gives the garment a different look than the bias binding, I also think it provides a little more structure because I fused mine with mid weight interfacing. There is no right or wrong way, its simply out of preference. Sometimes I dislike facing because it flops around inside the garment, unless hand stitched in place or top stitched down completely. I went ahead and top stitched mine down on the dress, and like how it looks- and absolutely no flopping around! Lets get started!
