Tilly and the Buttons Marigold Jumpsuit & Trousers Sewing Pattern
Whip up a stylish jumpsuit or a pair of casual trousers with this easy-to-use sewing pattern.
The relaxed peg-shaped trousers are easy-fitting at the hip, with slash pockets for nonchalant slouching, tapering into a slim line ankle. The waist has gentle shaping from pleats and darts, cinched in with a quick-sew elasticated waistband. The jumpsuit bodice is shaped with bust darts and a sweetheart neckline, with a comfortable blousy waist, wide (bra-concealing!) shoulder straps, closing with an invisible zip at the side.
Wear Marigold with heels and a statement necklace for bossing it at the office, or with plimsoles for lounging at home or picnicking in the park. The jumpsuit also looks great layered over tops, so can carry you through to the milder months.
Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Marigold includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
