I have been inspired by Jen Kao's jewelry and wanted to do something similar. The photo is courtesy os http://www.forwardforward.com/.
What you need is leather, chain, zipper and glue. From there you can add on if you want to. In addition to the basics, I used eyelets on the leather and threaded leather lacing through some of the chains.

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!
