Did you really think I wouldn't?

I couldn't help but notice that no-one commented to my latest planning post. The one in which I told you about my continuing interest in making one-piece outfits. Of course, that may have happened because the post wasn't very interesting, or because there were more pressing matters to attend to. But maybe, just maybe some of you thought that, if ignored, my crazy love for jumpsuits might just GO AWAY.
Well, obviously it didn't and I'm proud to present my latest version (pictures were unfortunately taken on a definate bad-hair-day):





It has a long, wide legs, a seam at the natural waist, front and back pockets, a convertible collar and short band/cap sleeves. As such, it's quite a different creature than my beloved winter jumpsuit and I'm happy to announce that I got rid of the flaws which made my first one, the high-summer playsuit, pretty much unwearable.




If you've ever worn a jumpsuit, you'll know why this picture is relevant... 




And this time, I didn't forget to take some pictures of the details. This is the front.




Back bodice shaping.




And back pockets. Single welts with buttons.




Oh, and this is a garment which I think seriously looks as good with or without a belt.

  1. Well done, it looks amazing! The fabric has a lovely drape- linen?

  2. I've alway loved jumpsuits and wore them a lot when I still lived in Europe. However, I moved to the Philippines many years ago. Unfortunately here the cleanliness of bathroom floors are often not up to par, and the height of the doors also leave much to be desired (Filipinos are generally quite short!). So I stopped wearing jumpsuits, as having to take the whole thing off every time I went to the bathroom at work, and keep it all off the floor and make sure I was not showing too much underwear when I stood up, was just too much effort! Love your jumpsuit though!

  3. I hate jumpsuits - usually. Yours looks chic as hell, though. I'd wear it in a heartbeat.
    I second the question about the fabric: What is it?

  4. I love jumpsuits - for the same reason I love dresses. You put one thing on and you are dressed! No blouses to tuck in, etc. great job!

  5. I've detested wearing jumpsuits since my childhood (and hated already as a child how you have to get almost totally undressed when you go to pee... :)), but yours looks so cool and flattering!

  6. Lovely jumpsuit! I have thought about making one but I'm not sure how practical it would be for me. As the previous poster mentions, I wonder how difficult bathroom breaks are? Anyway you look totally fabulous in yours, so maybe it is worth trying :o)

  7. This is rad. Reminds me of a Rosie the Riveter coverall, but you know, urban & cool.

  9. Love it! I just made a romper (blog post here http://seamstresserin.blogspot.com/2012/05/bringing-back-romper.html) and am planning on making a pants and sleeves version soon. I've certainly been inspired by seeing your jumpsuits.

  11. You definitely make me forgive jumpsuits. Not quite sure what I had against them, mind you, except that I'll never find one off the rack to fit. Looks great! :)

  13. This is a very "smart" looking jumpsuit! I love them, personally--like an entire tailored outfit in one. I love the cap sleeve treatment--beautiful shaping!
