This is my first stab at Butterick 5629, a great vintage Sixties mens jumpsuit pattern (and a gift from one of my readers!). Love those princess seams! I bought a teal-colored zipper and matching topstitching thread to add a little color. I decided against the matching belt as it would break that blue vertical line up the front and shorten me.
The pants length came out an eensy bit short so I may add a fake cuff to the bottom: it needs a little more heft there. With boots or high-top sneakers I can live with it as-is. I love this pattern and can’t wait to make it in a more unusual fabric.

I used a stretch cotton twill I bought for $2/yd in the garment district.
