Fishprint Playsuit - Ultimate Member Model Challenge

I had to sew a summer jumpsuit as well ;) I found this fun fabric on our trip to Singapore and I just had to buy it even though I didn’t know what to use it for.. For the facings and smockwaist I’ve used shiny satin, and I think it was a good choice. The playsuit is perfect for my niece Ingrid :-)

Material Notes

Cotton and satin.




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual

    awww, so cute! the print reminds me of Japanese yukata (kimono) print and making it as a playsuit is such a perfect idea because it’s like a modernized & simplified kimono. ;) very well done!

    Looks both full of life and original: the flower print for the sportive jumpsuit looks winsome. Nice job with many ideas.

      I wonder where I saw… I surely thought they are flowers on the all the pictures except the last one… I’m sorry for my abcent-mindness… feel awkward indeed… Probably their tails hypnotizied me too much… At least I didn’t see the blossoming trees which are a lot around

    Cute, Ellen! I had to look at the close up pics to appreciate it was a fish print, haha – when I first looked I thought, oh such a pretty floral print! Hope you are having a lovely holiday :)
