Yet another 60s style jumpsuit!

Vogue 6435

I made this little baby earlier this year, using some dark green wool crepe. I had made the true-to-the-pattern version for summer, (Vogue 6435) and enjoyed styling it 1920s for a Speakeasy party. I loved how versatile it was, how comfy, and stylish. And, while I can still reach around to unzip it, how these jumpsuits have become fun, unique everyday wear!

The first version used straps, and I wanted something that I could wear across the seasons, so I used a kimono bodice pattern I adapted from a 50s dress and the wonderful wide leg pants. Voila! Happiness.

The same week I finished the green wool crepe jumpsuit, I cut out another one, using some woven acrylic deep/navy blue I had in my stash… Kind of awful fabric, but in the real world with kids and grime, and once a fortnight laundromat missions, it’s amazing, foody finger smears just wipe right off, if they even stick! The fabric is not so scratchy, I lined the bodice, but not the pants, the fabric has a great drape and is not too hot.

It is nice with a brooch, a necklace.

But add a belt, and gloves…

And it’s fun!

I love the 1920s, and this is great for the easy wear, beach pajama look (I need to find a halter top for another one..). I also love the 60s with the sci-fi futuristic Spacewear, and like to imagine the people of the world living in harmony and stylish jumpsuits….but that’s another story! I love how changing the accessories makes this little jumpsuit work with many stylish decades. Eep, can’t wait to make another one….

More over on my blog, of course, Vogue 6435.
