This blog post I wrote as part of the Minerva Maker Team – the fabric was provided to me free of charge in return for the blog post.
Sometimes you see a fabric and know instantly what to make with it – that was what happened with this fabric from Minerva Crafts. It’s a stunning floral cotton jersey with a black background and fuchsia pink flowers all over it. I just love the contrast in this print, the colours are so vivid and bright! So… perfect for a jumpsuit you might say?!
That’s what I thought anyway, jumpsuits are storming the sewing nation this year and the latest release by Deer & Doe does not disappoint – the Sirocco Jumpsuit. It’s a mock wrap jersey jumpsuit pattern with pleats at the front and back bodice and front leg waist seam, and darts at the back leg waist seam. It has slanted front pockets too which tie in nicely with the pleats and the legs taper toward the ankle. It is also finished with a wide neckband and short sleeves.
