New Pattern Release! It’s a bit like deja vu seeing this jumpsuit come to life again after I first rocked it in a cool coral jersey back in the mid-eighties. I named her Mimi after my art teacher who encouraged me to enrol onto the fashion design course at college.
The Mimi jumpsuit is a relaxed fit made in linen or jersey to take you from summer to winter. Features a plunging wrap front and twist tie fastening towards the back, soft roll neck, two side slip pockets. Version A has long sleeves and tapered legs. Version B has short sleeves and is a playsuit. Layer it over our Betty bias camisole on cooler days.
The Mimi jumpsuit and playsuit are super comfortable to wear and it can be made from a wide range of fabrics to take you through the year. You’ll need a medium weight 2 or 4-way stretch knit jersey with at least 20% stretch, medium weight silk/linen jersey for the long cool summer days. Stretch velvet or jersey wool is ideal to keep you cosy and warm in the winter.
The detailed pattern instructions are beautifully illustrated and easy to follow. We can’t wait to see your Mimi jumpsuit and playsuits popping up on our social media feeds. Snap up your copy of the pattern over on our online shop! #rsmimijumpsuit #rsmimiplaysuit
