Description

A jumpsuit is an entire outfit-in-one and is full of room for one’s own interpretation. We created our own variation of a burda style magazine jumpsuit pattern and altered it to our liking by eliminating the cuffs and gathers at the ankle and widened the legs for a more free-spirited look.

This design calls for a 2-way stretch fabric so we went with a comparable peach hued silk knit. There are no closures to insert but a tie at the waist, so slipping into this outfit is as easy as pie. Which look do you prefer, cinched and gathered at the ankle or a flowing bell bottom?

Material Notes

150 cm (59 in) wide stretch jersey: 2.25 – 2.25 – 2.25 – 2.30 – 2.40 m (2 5/8 yds).
Vilene/Pellon Bias Tape. Elastic, 1 cm (3/8 in) wide: 0.70 – 0.75 – 0.80 – 0.85 – 0.90 m (7/8 – 7/8 – 7/8 – 1 – 1 yd).

    Just ordered navy viscose because I plan to make something like this (navy because I do NOT look pretty in a pale peach-color!). I’ll make the legs more narrow tho. Not very practical with flaring leg, when you ride your bike everywhere as I do. :-)

    I think I like it! But it does resemble a pajama.

    If I’d make it I’d probably stick with the original version but shorten the legs a tad and make it in a high quality black, navy or dark brown jersey…

    I do like this pattern, it’s a shame I didn’t get that copy of the Burda style magazine…

    I disagree with those who think this style is for tall waifs only. I think thin/“normal”-weight fit girls of most heights could pull it off, but the fit IS tricky with rompers and has to be perfect for it all to look nice…

    a mega problem w/ this kind of style is you gotta be skinny to wear it and get that 70´s look. for a healthier girl i suggest dropping the waist a bit and doing a wider rib knit covered elastic band with a bit more fullness and a straight instead of wide leg. no shiny fabrics unless you really just want it, plus synthetics are not cool when you´re sweaty. i´m a huge fan of easy summer dressing! :D let´s get to work, girls! <3

      I agree with the suggestion for a wider waist band, I’m planning on making a jumpsuit and I’m going to do about three inches or so of elastic smocking to create the waist so it will just skim the hips. That’s the solution I’ve come up with for the jumpsuit + health problem, just putting it out there in case it helps anyone!

    I might try it as shorts and drop the waist a little bit. Full length I think it’s a bit much, even though it looks great in these photos with the bell bottom and the nice fabric.

    It looks great on the model, as it does on almost every tall and thin woman, but I don’t think I’ll try it. I’m too curvy and of average hight. I like the look though.

    I really love this look on other people but as I am short and curvy I tend to look like a chubby little toddler in jump suits. I could maybe get away with one with shorts rather than full length legs but I think taller women look good in this style.

    brings back bad memories of a time in the 70’s and the purchase of an orange jumpsuit . Thankfully the mistake was realized and same jumpsuit was never worn

    This is just not happening for me (and peach was not a 1970s color as I recall). Some jumpsuits can be fun, but they are so impractical I will never wear or make one again. Well, if public restrooms can be avoided entirely, it might work for someone. Getting a good fit is also always a challenge with jumpsuits. This particular version here isn’t particularly flattering even to the model…

    Uuu, I like this style waay better than the one in the magazine! This I may actually make one for myself. I like this colour, it gives a soft, womanly retro look… :)

    YES YES! Oh how I want this. Except I would make it a fitted trouser at the waist because I tried a jumpsuit on similar to this one and it looked like pyjamas, NOT flattering. I do love the wide leg though.

    Hmm, I´m not a fan of this look… I think anyone with bigger “behind” wouldn´t look good in this. I liked some short rompers with dropped waist though, they are more flattering I think :).

    If it was shorts I’d love it.

    I’m a fan of short rompers, or playsuits, or jumpers, or whichever name you want to call them, but the full-length unitard look is a bit TOO 70s for me. If I had to choose between the baggy, gathered pant and the wide-legs in the same fabric, I’d probably end up choosing the non-gathered option, but although the colour is pretty, there’s something about the peach one-piece that is vaguely pajama-ish to me. The leopard print version seems more wearable.
