This fabric is so joyful! I love all the colours! It has a teal base with floral details in pink, yellow, green and blue; absolutely wonderful! It’s a medium weight, so not too flimsy or clingy but still soft and very comfortable to wear. I think it would be perfect for making all sorts of things. Perhaps a lovely wrap dress, a Tilly Buttons Coco tunic, a pretty tshirt such as the Astrid top by Emporia Patterns or maybe even a pencil skirt like the Elemental Skirt from Sew House Seven.
I decided to make the new Nasima Jumpsuit by Sew Over It. When I first started planning the jumpsuit I had wanted to use a plain fabric, but when I spotted this glorious cotton knit on Felicity Fabrics website, I simply could not resist it!
After hearing others feedback on the jumpsuit, I decided to lengthen the bodice by 3″, as I’m slightly longer in the body. I’m so glad I did, as it has a nice blousy finish when worn with a belt.
The leg is designed to be full length, but I prefer it rolled up to mid calf length. It gives a more casual look I think.
To give the outfit a little vintage twist, I’ve styled it with a wide pink cinch belt and a pink nylon neckscarf. If you are a newbie to vintage styling and are looking to add a touch of it to your outfits, then accessories like these are great for a quick fix! You could also try some lucite jewellery (Splendette and Bow & Crossbones are a couple of good places to start) and head scarves or turbans are perfect vintage accessories too! Finally, don’t forget to finish it all off with winged eye liner and red lipstick!! You’ll be good to go!
Thanks for reading lovely people! Happy sewing and see you again soon!
