Made by a Fabricista: Sirocco Jumpsuit

Good day everyone, here we are already deep in July unbelievable! And here I am again with yet another Fabricista make to share with you.

Before we get into any details let’s take a minute and talk about this fabric, it’s a Deep Scarlet Liverpool Knit, I cannot begin to explain the color it was even more beautiful than expected when I received my parcel and I was thrilled. Beautiful two way stretch, believe it or not it has an amazing drape and feels so good against the skin. I have seen the texture of the fabric on makes, read the description and always wanted to work with it. Now that I have, I can see what the big whoop around it was all about!

For this make I chose the Sirocco Jumpsuit from Deer and Doe Patterns, I had my eye on it for a while and this Liverpool was a perfect match. While I was very excited about this make and how nice it came I am not as excited about the fit. I made a toile with a knit fabric nonetheless when I cut my real fabric the bodice is too short for my taste which makes it tad uncomfortable, beside this hurdle in my journey the pants fit perfectly and the fabric feels like second skin. 


To create some contrast I used the wrong side of the fabric for the neckband and the waistband, it has kind of a luster to it and I like it. Because the fabric is so soft I double the waistband to reinforce it that was a great choice. I shared some behind the seams pics for a close up look.



This is a fairly easy make, I will definitely make this jumpsuit again with a few adjustments of course and if you have not worked with a Liverpool knit yet, trust me, you need to do so now.

Thank you for reading, until next time.

  1. The color is fabulous on you! You look great. If you have any scraps left, could you make the waistband wider to give you a little more length? It would be a pain but may be worth it for comfort....

    1. Hi Sue, thank you so much! that is a great idea, a wider band might be the solution to my problem :-)

  2. Your idea to add the contrast using the flip side is genius. Works a charm! Very nice creation, looks super comfy, and so sorry you feel at the end you needed another bit of length for the torso. I see what you mean, but still, great job with this fabric, and yes, a beauty of a color, too.

Made By A Fabricista: Date Night looks for Valentine's Day

Happy New Year! I am excited to be back blogging in 2023 with Fabric Mart.  Over the past few weeks, I spent quite some time reflecting on what truly brings me joy and a personalized form of self-care. Sewing was on the top of the list and I truly enjoy making my own clothing.  During the winter break, I wanted to create some basic looks that I can jazz up for a wedding or rock on date night.  When I read Johanna’s  blogpost and came across the Vogue 1835 pattern that she made last month, I saw endless possibilities with the pattern.  I knew it was perfect to hack to make a mini, midi or maxi dress and a staple pattern to have. My original plan with the lycra foil printed knit ( here ) fabric was to make a formal infinity wrap dress that I saw on instagram.  I will be attending a formal event later this month and felt it was perfect. Knowing that I would only wear the infinity wrap dress once or twice per year, I decided to make separates that I can dress up or down and maximize the w

Made By A Fabricista: Sewing Toward Spring

Hello, all! I find it positively lovely to be back on the Fabric Mart blog in 2023 sharing more sewing projects.  This round I wanted to create an outfit to ease me back into spring. As I shiver and type this, imagining nicer weather is a very uplifting thought! But for now I’m stuck with chilly (and gusty!) weather that makes taking photographs more of a challenge. When I began working on this project, I was still swirling with holiday sewing, and while I usually have my sewing projects planned down to the T in advance, this time I was much more up in the air and just had the most cursory of ideas, so I kind of put together a little kit for myself to work with. If nothing else, seeing a beautiful little stack of fabrics and notions is very motivating.  Have you been in a constant swooning state over all the incredible Liberty of London wovens that have swept through the New Arrivals? I've, for one, have felt practically breathless poring through the huge assortment and adding a f

Made by a Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Marty - Let's Make Some Activewear!

Do you ever see a fabric, and it reminds you of a fabric in your stash, so you just have to combine the two and like... annoy the world? Now I'm not saying that these colors are horrible together, but I definitely feel like a high visibility vest while wearing them. The neon orange and hot pink are just that striking of a combination. And I still can't get over the pocket detail I did on the color-blocked pair. Along with everyone else I set a New Years goal to be more healthy. To improve my relationship with food, my body, and the world around me. And these leggings bring me so much joy. Not, go run a marathon in July joy. But maybe some Yoga and outdoor adventures in August kind of joy. From beginning to end, figuring out these legging patterns has been a lot of fun. Before this, it had been almost a decade since I had worked this seriously with knit, and I think I need to do more, to be honest. I apologize for the awkward photos. I just finished a cross-country move and am s
