    5 out of 5 Deer and Doe rules!

    Teresa

    Deer and Doe consistently publish easy to sew, straightforward patterns. This design is amazing, I loved sewing it (and I’ve already made two). I’m 5’1”, so took out about 1.5” of the leg length. The rest fits perfectly. I was concerned that the depth of the v neck would be too revealing (particularly because of my torso length and bust measurements) but I was pleasantly surprised to see this wasn’t an issue. One tip: they’re not kidding about the stretch needed for this design. I made the mistake of choosing a fabric that didn’t have much (well, any) stretch. It was salvageable, as evidenced by this pic! I just had to take out the side seams, cut a longer waistband, and add a side zipper.

    5 out of 5 Super chic jumpsuit

    I was really sceptical at first, as the Sirocco has no fastenings. This means the waistband needs to be able to get over your hips while also keeping its shape on the waist. Deer and Doe recommend fabrics with at least 60% stretch for that very reason and it is really important. I would also highly recommend using an overlocker to construct the waistband, otherwise you will end up with popped stitches as you take it on and off.
    I also found I needed to take off 7.5 inches from the hem as it was far too long.
    I absolutely love the style of the Sirocco and will definitely make more – maybe floral jersey short version for the summer.

    5 out of 5 Scuba Sirocco jumpsuit

    buttonnpip

    The loved this jumpsuit as soon as it was released, and as soon as I found out it was a jersey pattern it jumped straight to the top of my sewing to do list.
    I used scuba for my jumpsuit which I think is just on the limit of the amount of stretch. You do need the stretch as there are no fastenings so it needs to stretch over your hips when taking on and off.
    The pleat details on the bodice and trousers give a beautiful tulip shape to the jumpsuit and the the wrap bodice is flattering.
    There are two leg options and I made the full leg version, I’m not sure I would make the playsuit as it is very fitted.
    Overall my jumpsuit obsession has officially begun

    5 out of 5 Summer sewing perfection

    marie_m.b

    This pattern is perfect for a comfy summer staple. I’ve already made two and got another lined up on my cutting table.

    Difficulty:

    This pattern was a very easy sew with clear instructions and no zips, fastening or elastic. It would be perfect for a confident beginner.

    Adjustments:

    The only adjustments I had to make were to shorten at the crotch and leg area as I am as my fiance says ‘clinically tiny’. I didn’t have to make any adjustments to the bodice and it fit perfectly.

    Fabric:

    I made this version in a slinky viscose jersey which worked perfectly as it’s lightweight and cool for the hot weather.
    I’ve also made one in ponte which fit like pajamas and is just as comfy. My next I will make in scuba and I’m sure it will be just as good

    Would I reccomend?

    100% yes. This is definitely in my top 5 sewing patterns. Deer and doe have done a wonderful job of drafting this patten and the instructions are so clear and easy to follow.
    If you haven’t made one yet you really should

    4 out of 5 A chic and comfortable jumpsuit that's fun to sew and easy to wear

    ChloeMontrose

    Good instructions?

    Clear instructions and diagrams. I varied the construction order a little, and I saw no reason not to set the sleeves in flat and stitch them up along with the side seams.

    Ease of sewing?

    Easy to sew if you have some experience of working with knits. The hardest part may be ensuring the pleats and darts line up, and that’s not difficult, it just requires double checking how it looks from the right side.

    I used the overlocker for a lot of the seams, but stitched the side seams on my sewing machine, pressed them open and overlocked the seams separately, so that if I needed to add an invisible zip it would be easier to unpick.

    I’m a really slow sewist, often spending days on a pattern other people whip up in a few hours, but by my standards it was a very quick make, so I’m sure an actually speedy sewist would blitz through it.

    Fit?

    It’s stretch, so it’s very forgiving fit-wise. I cut my recommended size for bust and hips (I sized up for the waist) and it works well.

    Any modifications?

    Added 1 1/8 inches to bodice (and neck band), didn’t need to increase rise or lengthen legs. I’m about 5’10”, and I can still roll up the hems twice, so I think the legs would be long on many people.
    I did a narrow shoulder adjustment of about 2cm, which is pretty standard for me.

    Fabric?

    I used a luxury double knit from Calico Laine in the colour Steel (70% polyester/25% viscose/5% elastane) with a lovely hand, subtle sheen and nice drape. It has over 60% stretch, which is essential for the no closures design. You get out of it by pulling it off your shoulders and down past your hips, so there needs to be enough stretch to accommodate this. The original pattern info and instructions specified 30-40% stretch, but that probably won’t cut it for most, and @deer_and_doe_patterns subsequently changed it to minimum 60% stretch. I think even this would depend on your proportions and the difference between your hip and waist measurements. Mine fall into the same size bracket but it’s something to consider if your waist is much smaller than your hips/thighs.

    Make again?
    Definitely. Quick, super comfy, fun to sew, easy to wear (and to visit the bathroom!)

    Do anything differently?
    I’d do a neater job of attaching the waistband to the bodice. I haven’t had an overlocker very long and my technique could be improved upon, as the line is wobblier than I would like.

    I also want to try a dressier fabric, and I have some ideas for hacks that would be fun to try.
