Margo Playsuit


4.80 out of 5

Experience the Good Life in our versatile playsuit, designed for your ever changing life, or indeed mood! Just like her namesake, Margo is ready to face any occasion with unabashed elegance and style, whether in Surbiton or San Tropez. Even if the neighbours don’t live up to your high expectations, your outfit certainly will!


With its dual length options, this clever little playsuit can be interpreted by your vision, and adapted to fit with a range of eras. A plain black fabric sees Margo bang up to date with today’s trends, or go Naughty Nautical in anchor print linens and crepes, and decorate with braid, gold buttons or fabric tattoos for a 50s rockabilly edge; you can shorten her hems and make her up in crochet-style lace and flowers for a romantic late 60s festival feel, or, of course, channel your inner Mrs Leadbetter by using the boldest Pucci-esque print in your fabric stash, for a true 70s diva wide-leg jumpsuit!

The pattern can also be adapted to pair the Audrey full skirt with the Margo bodice, for a square-necked halter dress. Release the designer in you – Margo is the perfect sartorial canvas to let your imagination run wild on!

    Really well laid out instruction booklet with clear patterns. I love that it’s on heavy weight paper so I can keep using it. Great style, love it!

    Made this in the short & long version. I found it made up bigger than size, but this allowed to get a great fit. I have had so many compliments wearing them. The packaging is fab & instructions are easy to follow. Love it highly recommend. (Just ordered the add on kit too) Thank you.

    Just made this – absolutely gorgeous and fits great as always! Only problem was that it didn’t seem to have instructions for the collar addition in the booklet. I’m unsure as to whether I missed it somewhere or if it just doesn’t say. Although, in the end, it was easy enough to figure out and made a lovely garment.
