I made a jumpsuit! A Holly Jumpsuit! I went with the version 2 of the jumpsuit, the one with the bias cut bodice, spaghetti straps and a slight cowl at the neckline. I love the high-waisted trousers. It has the right amount of snug making for a flattering silhouette. And the wide legs make it comfy and effortless.
I used a peachskin fabric to make this jumpsuit even comfier! It’s incredibly soft and I love its slightly brushed texture. However, working with peachskin wasn’t my favourite part of this project. It frayed quite a lot and I found it difficult to press. But the result is beautiful, and I particularly love how it drapes.
This is the second By Hand London pattern that I’ve sewn for myself, the other being my Anna dress. I am so impressed with how well both patterns fit. Apart from shortening the trousers, I didn’t change anything on my Holly Jumpsuit and I love the fit. Thanks By Hand London!
On an accessory note, I dyed the silk scarf to match the jumpsuit. I took a silk dyeing class here in Madison last week where we used Spectra bleeding papers to create beautiful watercoloring effects on silk. I had the jumpsuit in mind at the time, so I went for a scarf with vibrant colours that could compliment the garment. It ended up looking cute with the jumpsuit so it made it into the photoshoot! 🙂
Thanks for looking!
