My first, second and third Zadie jumpsuit!
I'm a bit late to the party but now I see what all the fuss is about...I'm in love! I don't know about you but I find the fit of indie patterns so much better than the big 4. The Zadie jumpsuit is another amazing indie pattern by Paper Theory
For my first Zadie I went for a Ramie linen fabric from Textile Express, it's reasonably structured fabric but still has a soft quality (in fact I've bought some more to make an Ilford Jacket for my husband).
I used a ready-made binding and bound the neckline in my usual way which means stitching the binding to the right side of the garment and then turning it into the inside and topstitching, I just prefer this method and I know I'll always get a neat result.
For my second Zadie I went for linen again but this time in a rusty orange colour from Sew Me Sunshine. It's a beautiful weight and perfect for the Zadie.
Then...I fell in love with the crowded faces fabric from the Village Haberdashery and knew it had to be a short version of the Zadie!
...and of course I had to make myself a matching face mask with the remnants!
I've got a bit of this fabric left so if you want a face mask in this print head over to my shop.
I would like to make one in viscose or chambray with longer sleeves for the Autumn and I would also consider a velvet version for winter, plus I've seen some great dress hacks so the possibilities are endless!
Have you made this yet?
