Not Just a Sunsuit tour: The Panelled Sunsuit pattern + Giveaway


I was really flattered when Ajaire sent me an email asking me to take part in the tour (and basically buttering me up, lol). I had grand plans to make a cute outfit from one of the bazillion options in this pattern but then life happened and I wasn’t able to sew for a few weeks and then I fell into a bit of slump and just couldn’t sew anything even when I wanted. In the end though I did it! I made probably the simplest view from this pattern.

View J, the skirt without pockets!

There are a gazillion* options in this pattern. Considering that the skirt is View J, that should tell you there are loads of options. I don’t know if I can even name all the versions you can make: sunsuit/romper, separate tops and bottoms, jumper, shorts and pants length, and skirt (in knee and maxi lengths)! She even released a long sleeve add-on so you can make long sleeves as well so you can sew up the sunsuit year round!

*(may be a slight exagerration).



This skirt sewed up so quickly (well, I was actually quite slow, needing to take breaks, but if you add up all the time I took it wasn’t that long really), especially since I left off the pockets for this version. Next time I will do pockets for sure, now that I’m getting my sewjo back finally. I also want to make a pants version and a jumper (which was my original plan), since a jumper can layer nicely for cooler weather. This is definitely a pattern you can get a lot of use out of, so take advantage of the sale!
