Sewing Fashion Trends: Jumpsuits

I've always loved the jumpsuit ever since I was a teenager, when I owned a denim one and seen as the jumpsuit has been gaining momentum for the last few seasons I'm dying to own another one or two.

Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
