Here is my latest make, another D&D Sirocco jumpsuit! The first one quickly became my favourite garment this summer, I could wear it every day! So comfy, so nursing friendly, and makes me feel chic and put together, what’s not to love! I made this one in a lightweight scuba from my beloved @globetex. I think this fabric is just perfect for it, even better than the first one I used (quilted double knit). The fabric had a darker border along one selvedge, about 25cm wide, so I decided to use it as an accent for the neckband, waistband, as well as sleeves and legs. The pieces had to be cut on the cross grain, but since this scuba has a similar stretch both ways, it wasn’t an issue. The change that I made from my first one was to finish the sleeves and the legs with a turned up cuff. I really like the cuffs! I like how the darker print gives a subtle contrast. I did have a challenge while cutting the fabric, since it seemed that the horizontal lines were not printed perfectly perpendicularly to the selvedge, so my dilemma was “do I stick to the selvedge and have a garment with crooked lines, or do I disregard the selvedge and cut so that the lines run perfectly across the body”. I chose the latter, again because the fabric is a knit with similar stretch both ways; I’d never do that with a woven! Even thought the print is pretty psychedelic, it still has thicker yellow lines that stand out, so I tried to match them across the legs on all sides as well as the bodice (maybe a bit of an overkill for some people, but I really love matching my prints 😂🤷🏻‍♀️). Now I have two favourite jumpsuits and I’m really looking forward to making one for fall with a longer sleeve! ❤️ #ddsirocco #deeranddoe #ilovesewing #sewingismytherapy #sewingisfun #sewcialists #montrealsews #memadeeveryday #memadewardrobe #handmadefashion #memade #isew #indiesewing #makersgonnamake #sewinglove #handmadestyle #deeranddoepatterns #handmadewardrobe #люблюшить #шьюсама #isew #imadethis #шьюсамасебе #canadasews #jeportecequejecouds #handmadefashion #sewistsofinstagram #globetex #globetexfabrics #rimmasews
