Marilla Walker Roberts pattern: take 2

So, having done a hack version of this Marilla Walker pattern for my daughter I decided I would like to make the Roberts jumpsuit again unhacked for myself as a summer ‘garden garment’. I  love this cotton lawn from Miss Matatabi it has all my favourite colours without being too girly (I’m not a girly person ).

I understood the construction much better from my first attempt although the flat fell seams were disastrous in this lighter fabric to begin with. I have a flat fell machine foot but this light lawn just kept unravelling itself out of the fold so in the end I resorted to folding the flat fell seams by hand which worked much better.

I am looking forward to some properly hot weather to wear this in earnest !
