Solina Jumpsuit

A review of Breaking the Pattern Book by Saara & Laura Huto


Reviewed by smpowzun on 21st January, 2019

I love this book! The patterns are beautifully designed, presented and drafted like all sewing patterns from Named. The photography is inspiring and the instructions are easy to understand and follow. There is a lot of additional information for beginner and in-depth explanations of key techniques which makes it a great reference book as well. The only trouble I had was in working out which pieces to trace off, because they are tightly packed together on the sheets of paper and the same pieces are used for multiple patterns but it is achievable (maybe save it for when you are not tired). I have made the Solina jumpsuit in a rayon from Tessuti Fabrics and it is one of my all-time favourite makes. I’m sure I will be living in it for the rest of the summer, it feels so comfortable and effortlessly glamorous. I definitely plan to make more projects from this book.
