Five Gorgeous Patterns for Chiffon

February’s Lavender Haze boxes came with 1m of a stunning peach floral chiffon. If you haven’t sewn with this type of fabric before make sure to check out our blog – Working With Slippery Fabrics to give you some tips and trick.

Take a look at Tamlyn’s top pattern picks to use with your gorgeous chiffon.

Chiffon is a delicate and beautiful fabric that has the potential to create some stunning garments, however it may not be a fabric you are used to sewing with, and therefore pattern inspiration may not immediately jump out at you. We’re hoping that these suggestions will help you on your way.

  1. Know Me Bodysuit and Trousers (ME2043)

A close fitting bodysuit with the option to add a contrasting fabric, this month’s chiffon will be perfect for creating some floaty sleeves that make a real statement!

  1. Sew DIY Lou Box Top

A versatile, loose fitting top with two neckline options and three hem options, for a total of six different silhouettes. With very simple design lines, this beginner-friendly pattern is the perfect canvas to showcase your stunning chiffon. 

  1. Itch to Stitch Auvers Top

The Auvers is a top designed for very lightweight woven fabric (i.e. chiffon!). In the front, two halves cross diagonally to create a V neckline. Elastic is applied on the bottom front to create a blouson effect, which will be stunning in chiffon, and the back has a shirttail hem – beautiful details to enhance an otherwise simple top.  

  1. Sew Different Layer Dress & Top

A pattern of two halves – a slim fitting under layer, with a boxy, oversized over layer that is perfect for a lightweight fabric like chiffon! You’d need to go for a short sleeve, however, as those long slim sleeves wouldn’t work in a delicate woven fabric. Although you could go for a contrast by adding a stretch fabric for the sleeves. 

  1. Burda Blouse 6434

A feminine blouse,  which will be perfect made up in a delicate fabric like chiffon, features pretty pleats from the neckline and a small slit in the back. This sleeveless blouse with a small collar will be perfect in those warmer months or will look equally nice under a light jacket or blazer.
