Hello Sailor!!!

This is one of my favorite playsuit patterns! Simplicity 1605.

This pattern can be used as a playsuit, or I’ve even made the top and shorts into separates.


I really fell in love with this fabric. Now, I must make a confession and let you know that this is outdoor fabric. Yes, the material you use to make lawn cushions. I will tell you, that it was quite comfortable. The only down side is that you MUST overlock it, and it needs to be dry cleaned.

Another aquatic outdoor material I fell in love with. I’m making a two piece playsuit out of it!


Such a comfortable and EASY pattern to sew!

  • I love the fabric! I’m just embarking on making this playsuit and wondered whether you had any problems with fit? I find the front bodice neckline to be really baggy but the rest is fine… I’m sure you’ll know how to solve this, please help xx
