Jenny's Durban Jumpsuit in Pale Blue Washed Cotton

When I first saw the Durban jumpsuit pattern from Megan Nielsen I knew instantly that it would fit into my wardrobe and pair so well with lots of my favourite tops. The version that specifically caught my eye was this one:

I really love it sewn up in a classic light blue, which is why I chose to make it in our pale blue washed cotton, it's lighter than denim and has a texture like linen which makes it the ideal fabric for wearing in the summer.

I made the version B which is V neck, sleeveless and wide leg and as you can see from these photos I hadn't yet hemmed them. Occasionally I like to wear a garment to decide on length before hemming it - I've now hemmed these to sit just above the ankle. 

I also opted for the in-seam pockets rather than patch pockets as that's my personal preference!

I paired the pale blue washed cotton with the Ginger cotton buttons from Merchant and Mills (pictured above)

I loved making this jumpsuit, and I also found it really helpful to follow along with Megan Nielsen's blog posts which have full sew-alongs and include extra tips and photos.

When we took these photos I'd been sitting at my desk all day and you can see how much this fabric creases - which I like as I think it gives it a linen-type look.

I really enjoyed sewing this Durban Jumpsuit and I'd really like to make it again in a denim, corduroy and even a twill for a drapier style. 

Thanks so much for reading!
