Something a bit different
To be honest, I’m not entirely sure I should publish this here.
Some vintage inspiration definitely went into making this jumpsuit but I’ll be the first to admit that it’s a bit of a mish-mash of styles.
The leg shape was inspired by some of the hobble dresses from the 1910′s. Because I wouldn’t much like to eh… hobble, I made trousers rather than a skirt.
The bodice is rather similar to what I would use for a 1950′s style dress and at first viewing, my boyfriend was thinking 1980′s (which I didn’t really like).
And yet, I kind of like it. After all, who can resist a garment you can twirl in? I look forward to wearing it when it gets colder again (spring has really started this week, here in the Netherlands)
