Sirocco Jumpsuit

I purchased the Sirocco Jumpsuit a few days after Deer and Doe released their recent collection. I have a rule that I only buy a new pattern if I’m going to make it immediately. Since Deer and Doe patterns are drafted with someone with my body shape and bust size I thought it would be a good purchase.Β

When the pattern was released I’d been thinking I’d need a comfortable and stylish aeroplane outfit for our European adventure. I don’t like wearing sweatpants and T-shirts in public so this felt like the perfect balance between the two. I was worried that a tiny aeroplane toilet might be an issue but the garment can be taken on and off easily.Β

This pattern is designed to be made in a knit fabric and has no closures. You simply pull it on and off. I used Ponte for mine and made it in size 42.

I made no changes to the pattern however I changed the construction order. I basically ignored the instructions – I used the notches as my guide. As it’s a knit pattern I set the sleeves in flat before sewing up the side seams. I avoid setting in sleeves in the round where I can. I added woven stay tape to the shoulder seams which I do for all knit garments. The hems were sewn on my Coverstitch.

I love this pattern it’s a comfy and modern jumpsuit which is more stylish than sweatpants. I can’t recommend it enough! I’m planning to use the bodice section of the pattern for the top of a dress or as a top with a wrap tie. I could also see this pattern made as separates if jumpsuits aren’t your thing!

    I love this on you, it looks great! I’ve been tempted by this pattern but haven’t made the leap yet. Do you think it could work for a breastfeeding mama without hacking?

    1. Thank you! It’s super comfortable and yes I think it would be great for breastfeeding! It’s easy to pull the front to the side – you might need to make sure you have stretchy enough fabric.

    1. Thank you so much! ❀️ I’m wearing it a lot at the moment. It’s winter in NZ so it’s the perfect comfort lounging outfit. I’m planning to make another one soon!
