Nova Jumpsuit Kit

Feel super relaxed while still looking chic, our June g&g Sewing Society kit includes everything you need to make a fun Truebias Nova Jumpsuit.

This is the ultimate comfy jumpsuit! Feel super relaxed while still looking chic with this cute summer style that can be worn alone or layered up underneath a classic basic tee.

Designed for knit fabrics, the Nova has various customisable features. All views have a fully faced neckline and arm holes, then choose between a wide elastic waistband with in-seam pockets or a straight fit through the waist and top stitched front pockets. For a super summery vibe, opt for the short romper length or go for full length with an elastic casing. You could even leave the ankle casing out for a loose swishy leg style.

For this kit, we have chosen two amazing colours of the softest, silkiest, smoothest mirco modal fabric that has been knitted and dyed right here in the UK, just for g&g.

This fabric has a nice amount of body, whilst still being light weight and it drapes beautifully. As it doesn't curl or roll at the edges like some other jerseys, it's easier to work with too - yay!

Choose between two fabric length options below of either Powder Blue (lighter colourway) or Legion Blue (darker colourway) and choose what size range of the pattern you would prefer to customise the kit contents for what you need.

This pattern size range is from US 0-30. Within this range there are two sub ranges: the B-cup is US 0-18 and the D-cup is US 14-30.

If you are unsure about what dressmakers cup size you are, please check out this article and note that it is different to what bra size you might wear.
