I was immediately drawn to our Oasis Night Viscose from Atelier Brunette - I love that it's printed on a navy background and features primary colors so it feels really versatile and easy to wear but at the same time, the print feels like a party.
I decided to make the Amy Jumpsuit by Closet Core (sizing up to a 48 inch hip) pattern to highlight the beautiful drape of this fabric. I made a straight size 8 which I chose based on my bust measurement. I am pear shaped and my hips are usually 2-3 sizes larger than my bust but the pattern instructions suggested to just go with the bust size and do a straight size because the hips have a lot of ease. If you span more than 3 sizes, they recommend grading between sizes for the bust and the hip.
I am 5'10" and most of my length is in my torso so I made up a quick muslin but just did the legs as shorts to make it quicker to put together. Based on my muslin fitting, I knew to add 3.5 inches to the torso length and I also added a half inch of length to the inseam, just to be safe.
Sewing with this viscose was actually pretty easy! It is not as slippery as other viscose fabrics and is fairly stable. I just recommend using a lot of pins as it will slip around a bit more than a super stable cotton or linen.
Trying on my garment before doing the lining and the straps. I didn't have to adjust the straps at all.
The finished jumpsuit!
This fabric is an absolute dream to wear, especially in this gorgeous flowy pattern. The drape is just perfect for these wide legs and this piece will be on heavy rotation for me this summer.
