Jungle wrap up – Simplicity 2603

Thanks Pretty Grievances for hosting Jungle January.

My safari suit is now at the cleaners and I will move onto using lace fabrics. Is anyone hosting a month of lace sewing? Although I’ve just cut out a new Minoru using PUL fabric because we’ve had the wildest summer safari weather.

And I now have a jungle wrap. No changes to this wrap pattern since I first made it up in the maroon version. The navy and brown versions are worn a lot to work because of the air con. This jungle net fabric from the Spotlight clearance table. 

It’s been an amazing safari through my fabric stash. What does it say about your personality when you have so much animal print in it but don’t make it up? Yes, I’ve been too chicken to try incorporating animal prints but now I can wear it without making the wrong statement.

As much as I loved the Sopranos series, that’s not the look I’m going for with jungle prints.
Not disrespect T.
Thanks for your comments on the vintage wrap. I think I’ll be brave and wear it at the beach too.


  1. Lady you have been rockin that wild look! Wasn't Jungle January fun.
    Seriously, all of your projects have been fabulous. What could be next…February Frocks?


  2. I've been so impressed by your output in January for this Jungle! Personally, I think you look great in all your outfits. Courage Velo, courage….


  3. What a great idea to use mesh ! You see I have no creativity in this way but that would be a lovely lightweight topper for summer. I bought some mesh and the girl was really generous and sold me everything left on the roll for the price of what I just wanted ( does that make sense ) and I had no idea what to do with it all – It is almost gone now after three tops but I wish I had thought of this !
