Playsuit - Jumpsuit!





I have been craving a jumpsuit for a while now. The ones below are by Paul and Joe (photos from net-a-porter.com) and represent only a fraction of ehat is out there in the stores.

Pattern: Selfdrafted. Took me 3 muslins but was worth it! BTW, it is not hard to do. All it is is a top and a pant pattern glued together. Well, it is not quite that simple but is not rocket science either!

Fabric: Lightweight bright blue denim.

Details: Inseam pockets; pleated band; cuffed pants; invisible zipper in side seam; elastic band in back pand; elastic at waist (you cannot see this in the photos, it is under the belt).

Construction: It was very easy to make!
The leather elastic belt and the necklace are also designed and made by me.

I LOVE it!
In fact, I love it so much that am thinking on making another one and trying to sell it on Etsy. Well, this is just a plan, but I love my pair!

Yep. Jumpsuits are absolutely growing on me! I actually like the ones that BWOF issued last month too. Yours is adorable and I'm sure it will do well on Etsy!

You totally rock this look. I still can't believe someone as stylish as you lives in Colorado Springs :) Good luck on Etsy (not that you'll need it).

What a terrific garment! I Love it so much that I'm planning of making one myself! I have this silk-like poly and I also found a pattern in a brazilian pattern magazine that I think I can work with! You are such an inspiration!
