Sewing around the world // Schnittchen patterns

Hello sewists around the world!

Today’s my turn to share my project for Schnittchen Patterns’ Sewing Around the World series: a blog tour of 12 sewists in 12 cities making 12 Schnittchen patterns. You can see the makes of the other amazing bloggers taking part in this series on the Schnittchen blog.

I picked the Carla Jumper, one of the new Summer 2017 patterns, a loose jumpsuit with wide cropped legs, a V-neck on the front and back and an elasticated waist casing.

We were given a voucher to a fabric store of our choice, and I picked the Fabric-Hemmers fabric store. I new I wanted something drapey for this project, so I went with a Viscose Voile fabric in a mini flower black & white print.  This turned out to be the perfect choice of fabric for this project!

This is the first Schnittchen pattern I ever made and I was really impressed with the fit and design details. I didn't make any alterations to the pattern, except for shortening the shoulders by 5cm. I cut a size EUR 40/ US 8/ UK 12 and I'm really satisfied with the fit of the garment. 

I love everything about this pattern! The V front and back neckline, the pockets and the hem height are all on spot and they make for the perfect summer garment! The Carla Jumper has been on rotation in my wardrobe ever since I made it!
