There are up to 45 pages for the jumpsuit, 34 pages for the dress or 61 pages for both options, to print, trim and tape together depending or you could get the included A0 copy printed for you by a copy shop or similar if you prefer. As always with Itch to Stitch patterns, the Anza pattern has very detailed size & measurement charts, print & cutting layout guides and are fully illustrated throughout with very professional drafting and finishing options, including full details on blending between sizes and lengthening/shortening to get your best fit.
The pattern pieces themselves have layers and all sizes have a different line colour and style so however you're printing, it will be super easy to assemble and cut. It requires between 2.5-3.4 metres (2.75-3.75 yards) for the jumpsuit and 1.9-2.4 metres (2.2-2.6 yards) for the dress of 54" wide light to medium weight woven fabric with no stretch. You'll also need a small amount of suitable weight fusible woven interfacing, some 6mm elastic for the waists and 25mm wide elastic if choosing gathered hems on the jumpsuit, and a length of cording or self fabric rouleau for the waist drawstring.
Dress - for this I used the same medium weight outdoorsy water repellant poly/poly blend as I used for my Tierras muslin. It has little drape and a bit of body as can be seen in the creases and folds in the photos. It was also a nightmare to iron with the fabric melting before the creases came out! I used eyelets instead of buttonholes for the drawstring openings at the waist and invisibly hand stitched the neck facing to the dress rather than machine sewing it down.
Jumpsuit - this is made in a lightweight drapey 100% cotton lawn. I did the buttonholes at the waist for the drawstring for this one as I was concerned my preferred eyelets would be too heavy for the light fabric. I also made the drawcord using the rouleau method rather than the double fold described in the pattern as I really wanted to keep the lightweight drapey qualities from the lawn fabric. Despite the fabric for this being thinner and more natural than the dress, I was actually warmer in the jumpsuit for the photos which I was really surprised at.
