The pattern lived up to its expectation and more, because it turned out that Marte from Compagnie M was the co-designer. In the tester group many, many Lila's were created, it is such a fun and quick sew. During the testing I made two jumpsuits, but today I will only show you one. I am showing you the one that I made following the instructions, because I of course had to hack something as well. I had a bunch of super cute pictures of both versions, and I wanted to show so many, that you will have to wait for the other version.
The pattern is sleeveless but can be easily made winter proof by wearing a onesie under it. For now I "only" sewed two jumpsuits, but I will try the dress versions as well. I say "versions", because this pattern is really packed with differentiation options, there is even a reversible one! Most of the options are for jersey, but some will work in woven as well.
The Jumpsuit I am showing your today was sewn with my serger only, those are the best projects, am I right? I didn't do top stitching, but you could of course, personally I like the lining showing a bit. The legs might seem a little long, but she needs this extra fabric when she sits down.
I made this jumpsuit with the leftovers from this dress, a little bit of twinning. A few weeks ago, I ordered new flower snaps, new colors had come available, and oh my, I love them so much. This color is really an exact match to the fabric, which made me very happy.
Due to the pattern release there is a 10% discount with the code LILA10 (valid until Sunday 11.59pm (CET +1 timezone) for both the paper and pdf pattern. Everyday this week Compagnie M and Lily&Woody are giving away free fabric, starting with the new brand Chat Chocolat today. Visit their sites later today to learn more about the fabric giveaways and the other testers.
She has been covered in snot for weeks, but she is so cute! Finally, I can also show the cute picture of my two youngest playing together, I made this picture during this shoot.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
