Buy the Intrepid Boiler Suit sewing pattern from Alice & Co Patterns. The Intrepid Boiler Suit is a top-to-toe cover-up that can be made as practical or glamorous as your heart desires! The design features a shoulder yoke, classic shirt collar and slightly tapered leg. It fastens with a zip down the centre-front, whilst the waistband casing allows you to cinch in the waist with a belt or elastic. The suit is loose-fitting but not baggy. There is a seam around the waist to allow for adjustments to the length of the body – vital for ensuring you can sit down comfortably! You can certainly do more than fix the boiler in this suit…and we guarantee once you have this on you won’t want to wear anything else!

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). Choose sizes 6 – 18 or sizes 18 – 22. What is Copy Shop?

Note if purchasing copy shop printing: Some pattern pieces are divided across two A0 sheets. The sheets will need to be joined with no overlap. 

Suggested fabrics: For full workwear chic choose a light-weight denim or cotton twill. For a smarter look, a light wool or wool mix (e.g. viscose/crepe) in pinstripe or houndstooth check would look great. Go glamorous in heavy-weight silk or polyester crepe or cosy up in a firm wool jersey or ponte version. Avoid anything too stiff or bulky.

Fabric requirements: 140 cm (55″) wide fabric: Sizes 8 – 12, 3 m (3 1/2 yd) // Sizes 14 – 16, 3.5 m (3 3/4 yd) // Sizes 18 – 22, 4 m (4 1/2 yd).

Sizing: UK 6 – 22. Please check the size chart.

Notions: Zip: For sizes 8 – 16 you will want a zip approx. 50 cm (20″) long. For sizes 18 – 22, or if you are tall, you may find a 56 cm (22″) long zip more comfortable // Optional: 4 cm wide elastic to go inside the waistband casing (the length of your waist measurement minus 10 cm).
