Make your own super comfy Marigold jumpsuit or trousers with this easy-to-use sewing pattern.
The peg trousers are easy-fitting at the hips, with an elasticated waistband, gentle shaping with pleats and darts, tapered ankles, and slash pockets for nonchalant slouching. The jumpsuit bodice has a sweetheart neckline, bust darts, blousy waist, wide (bra-concealing!) shoulder straps, closing with an invisible zip at the side.
Wear Marigold with heels and a statement necklace for bossing it at the office, or with plimsoles for lounging at home or picnicking in the park. The jumpsuit also looks great layered over tops, so can carry you through to the milder months.
Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Marigold includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
