You do not have to choose between style and comfort. Carlotta jumpsuit and playsuit have a wrap front bodice and a wide elasticated waist and drawstring, which defines an otherwise relaxed fit. Variation A, which is a jumpsuit features dropped shoulders and relaxed fit sleeves and pants that are slightly tapered on the hem. Variation B, which is a playsuit, features a dropped armhole which is slightly elasticated and has a mid-thigh length hem, perfect for the warm days of summer. Due to the stretch fabric, elasticated waist and wrap neckline, it is easy to get in and out of without additional fastenings or ties. Carlotta is a versatile jumpsuit for casual wear at home, out running errands or an evening out, depending on your fabric choice.
Light to medium weight stretch fabrics with a drape is ideal for this pattern. Choose fabrics that stretch four ways (at least 20%) and also have a good recovery. Stretch velour, velvet, jersey types, ribbing are some examples. You might need additional stretch lining fabric for the pocket and waistband facing if the main fabric you chose is thick or has a nap, which can create bulk when layered.
Intermediate. Working with foldover or clear elastic to finish the edges and waistband elastic tunnel can be challenging for beginners.
Measurements and Seam allowances:
This pattern includes measurements in Metric and Imperial systems in all files. Seam allowances are 1cm (3/8") for all seams unless marked otherwise on the pattern for the particular seam or hem.
*This is a digital product, and you will download 4 files after purchasing:
- Instruction file (Fabric recommendation, size and garment measurements chart, pattern and cutting layout, step-by-step sewing instructions, lengthening/sortening recommendations) (16 pages)
- Patterns for A0 and copy shop printing (2 page)
- Assembling map for A4-US letter files. This file helps you to put together home printed pages quickly and efficiently. (1 page-doesn't need printing)
Patterns for home A4 and US Letter printing. Pages are numbered and letter coded across the rows and columns, making it very easy to tape them together. (52 pages)
Both pattern files are layered, meaning you can print just the size you need, or all sizes nested together. Leave the layers named 'Grid' and 'Signs and Texts' visible, when you are printing 1 size only. All sizes are also colour coded, making it easy to differentiate the sizes if you print them nested together or get it printed in a copy shop. For deselecting the sizes you don't want to print, open the pattern PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader (free)
*Print ACTUAL SIZE, auto-rotation of the page enabled on your printer settings. Test by printing the 1st page only, to make sure you are printing in the correct scale. There is a test square to measure on the first page.

Hi, I am Nafisa. I am a Technical Designer and a Garment Engineer by day. I have 10+ years of experience working alongside high-end fashion designers creating their collections and red carpet ensembles. Many people who have work experience like me, end up having their own luxury fashion label at some point. But this was never a goal for me. I dreamed of helping other people to achieve their creative potential, rather than buying ready-made clothes I would make. And I decided to bring the aesthetic level, fit quality and finesse of the industry to the home sewers.
I love seeing your take on my pattern designs; whether it is a fabric choice or a hack.
I feel rewarded when I am a part of your journey of adding another favourite piece to your wardrobe, or your loved ones. Let's get to know each other better @capsule.patterns
