#Eucalyptus# Inspiration and Fabric Recommendations

We’re back today to take a look at the Eucalyptus jumpsuit! Effortlessly elegant and ultra comfy – Eucalyptus is just the right balance of tailored, relaxed, and of course . . . fun to sew and wear!

A double darted bodice and pants provide both structure and a great fit, while the elasticated waist and peekaboo detail on the back keep this jumpsuit feeling fresh and modern. We wanted to design a jumpsuit that was classic but playful, dressy but still easy to wear! Turn up the drama with the long version, or keep it casual as a playsuit.

Of course with the warm summer months approaching, comfort was at the top of our priority list – Eucalyptus features a more relaxed fit and the wide culotte pants are a dream to wear. Particularly in flowy fabrics, it will feel more like you are wearing a dress than trousers. Version A is sleeveless with long pants, and Version B is short with short sleeves, but the variations can be mixed and matched depending on your preference. 

Selecting a Fabric

Eucalyptus is best suited for light to medium-weight fabrics (particularly if you are sewing the long version, avoid anything too heavy). Depending on the results you’re looking for, you can choose fabrics with a lot of drape like viscose or tencel twill, or go for a little more structure with something like linen, cotton, or chambray.


We’ve rated Eucalyptus an advanced pattern (4/5) for some of its more advanced techniques like the cuban style collar and full button placket, but as usual we’ve taken care with our instructions to walk you through every step! No matter which variations you choose, you’ll find beautiful finishing details – including a facing for the back waistband and facings for the sleeveless view (a new-to-Deer&Doe technique).

Eucalyptus joins our collection of expanded patterns and is available in PDF format in sizes 34-60. There is still time to grab it (and any other patterns you’ve got your eye on) for 15% off during our storewide sale! Happy sewing!
