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: Two Luxury Linen Dresses to Transition from Summer to Fall

Hello Sewing Friends! I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista projects with you all, as these dresses were so nice to sew up. And they are just perfect for this time of year as summer transitions in to Fall here in the Midwest.   I chose 2 gorgeous linen fabrics to work with this month. I have to say, these are two of the loveliest linen fabrics I have ever worked with in my decades of sewing. These 100% Italian Linen fabrics are so unique and just an amazing quality.    The pattern I chose was one that I picked up during a Fabric Mart Fabrics pattern sale. I don’t sew a lot with Indie patterns and so when I saw the sale, I took advantage and stocked up so I could try out a few brands. This Wildwood Wrap Dress from Sew House Seven pattern company has been on my to-sew list for months and I knew these linen fabrics would be perfect for the design.  I started out with this gorgeous solid linen as my wearable muslin. Since it was a new to me pattern company, I knew I needed to test t

Made By A Fabricista: Silky Prints for a Tropical Vacation

Hello again!   I want to share with you my latest project using silky prints. My family had been planning to go to the Virgin Islands for a vacation. For this trip I wanted loose-fitting outfits. When the summer Vogue patterns were released, I fell in love with the vintage Vogue V1886 caftan. It is ankle length and the sleeves fell elegantly to the hemline, hitting the arm slightly above the elbows. It has a scooped back, which would make it comfortable in hot weather. There are side panels, but no seams. I could wear this relaxing under an umbrella during the day or for an evening stroll to enjoy the breeze on the beach. FM’s polyester lightweight charmeuse silky prints caught my eye. Even though I swore I would never again sew slippery fabrics, the coastal mountain print on the fabric (SKU UQA7666r) was hard to resist.  The moonstone blue/berry pink/medium blue/taupe were cool relaxing colors. While looking at the first fabric, I saw another silky print (SKU UQA7667r) that was ha

Made By A Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Hannah - Full Bust Adjustment

When I first started sewing I quickly realized the size I was cutting out in shirts and dresses wasn’t fitting my shoulders.  Why you may ask? I was only measuring according to my bust measurement which made my tops too big in the shoulders. After some research and asking in Facebook groups I learned I needed to do a Full Bust Adjustment on all of my patterns.  I watched tons of videos and read books on how to do a FBA and I found one way that continues to be my favorite way to this fit adjustment.  The pivot and slide method has become my go to for every FBA I do.  In this video I walk you through the steps to help you get the right fit for your bust area.
