Vintage Sewing

Something a bit different

March 11, 2014

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)

More about the jumpsuit (the pattern for which I drafted myself, as usual) on my blog

  1. I like it. It’s unique the coloring and fit are great on you and it looks comfortable to wear yet not too casual. Great pattern!
