Description

One of those things I’ve been sewing for others the last few months. This one was a request for my little sister based on my own jumpsuit but less beach vacation-like and more everyday-like. This meant less flamboyant fabric, longer legs and some short sleeves.

Since the pattern is in petite sizes, I adjusted it to make it regular. Other than that the variations from the original are very few, basically just adding the short sleeves and cutting out the inner waistband in a non-stretchy woven lining fabric to keep the waist at the waist.

I love how this turned out, I would’ve happily worn it myself. And I think the fabric is really cool. I like the embroidery effect of this print.

Photos of the happy sister modelling it are taken in picturesque Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia.

    I’ve been meaning to make one for such a long time now but always something else came first. LOVE this version and judging by the lovely photos, so does your sister!!! As she should, it is fantastic, great fabric and I agree about the sleeves, makes it more “all the time” wearable :-))

    I love jumpsuits and I love this one. The sleeves look great and what lovely fabric. I initially loved this pattern but discarded it because of the back but now i will look at it again x

      Thanks Mary! The back was a bit of an issue for me too, but it drapes really nicely, so I live with it and use a tube top or tank top under

    Very nice indeed, Maria. The sleeves look great and make it look completely different to everyone else’s. I’m thinking of making this again some time soon! :)
