Summer is finally here! If you don’t live in the southern hemisphere. what I love most about this time of the year, is the amount of sewing inspiration everywhere; on the highstreet, Pinterest and of course other people’s makes on Instagram. I have decided to come up with a series of posts I have called ‘sewing for summer’. I will be focusing on an individual piece of clothing and sharing with you my tried and tested patterns. So today’s focus will be jumpsuits and rompers.

I will be sharing with you four of the jumpsuits patterns I have sewed up and love. I will also show you their lines drawings, the special features and of course the pictures of my makes.

Sunday Romper by Love Notions

The Sunday romper pattern by Love Notions is a newly released pattern which I had the pleasure to test. I can not tell you how much I love it and it comes with 5 variations. I have sewed up the romper and the knee-length version already.

  • Size range: 0-32
  • Variations: 5 which include 3 pants lengths options- shorts, cropped & full length and 2 skirt lengths – knee & full length
  • Features: Dolman & tank bodice options
  • Fabric: Light to medium weight knits such as rayon/viscose jersey, cotton jersey, modal and cupro
  • Skill level: Confident beginner
  • Bonus: Full Bust pattern pieces included
  • Format: PDF

I have reviewed this pattern on both here on the blog and over on my Youtube channel if you would like to read or watch it.

Sirocco Jumpsuit by Deer and Doe Patterns

The Sirocco jumpsuit is mock-wrap knit jumpsuit with short set-in sleeves and pleated pants. It is greatly loved in the sewing community. I have made the jumpsuit version already and I have another one planned out.

  • Size range: 34 to 46 (printed) and 34 to 52 (PDF)
  • Versions: Two – Version A has tapered legs, version B is a romper.
  • Features: Mock -wrap and short set-in sleeves.
  • Fabric: Jersey fabric

I have reviewed the sirocco jumpsuit in a blog post over here and over on my Youtube channel here.

New Look 6446

The New Look 6446 is one from the big 4 which is a favourite of many. We both know that getting the right fitting with the big 4 patterns it is not the easiest thing. But once you get it right, you are sure to sew it up more than once. And I have made this pattern twice already.

New Look 6446
  • Size range: 6-18 (UK), 2-14(US) & 34-46(EU)
  • Variations: 4 which include a jumpsuit, a playsuit, a knee-length dress and a maxi.
  • Features: Sleeveless and squared neckline.
  • Fabric: Woven fabrics such as cotton, chambray, lawn, linen, corduroy, denim
  • Skill level: Intermediate
  • Availability: Paper

Zadie jumpsuit by Paper Theory Patterns

The Zadie jumpsuit is relaxed and easy to wear jumpsuit. It wraps around the body with just strings with no need for zips or buttons. Which is a win for any sewist who would rather skip those steps. I made the sleeveless version in a tie and dye Ankara / African wax print fabric.

Zadie Jumpsuit
  • Size range: 6 -28
  • Versions: 2 included; sleeveless with dropped shoulders and 3/4 sleeves.
  • Features: Wrap which fastens with ties and wide legs.
  • Fabrics: Woven fabrics such as cotton, linen
  • Skill level: Advanced beginner
  • Format: PDF

I share my review of the Zadie jumpsuit in this video over on my Youtube channel.

I love all the jumpsuits I have made and they all offer unlimited possibilities. They can all be dressed up or down which is greatly determined by the fabric you choose. Have you made any of the patterns show before? If not, which one would you like to have a go at making?

Thanks for stopping by. xx
