The blueberry jumpsuit.
I made this jumpsuit in August last year (2009) before going to New York on vacation, so that I would have something cozy to wear on the 9-hour flight. But somehow I never managed to get any photos when wearing it. When I came home I wore this jumpsuit whenever getting it cozy – just what the garment was made for initially. And then the camera was never around.
This week I’m up north in Sweden visiting my boyfriend’s dad in Srmjle in Vsterbotten. And up north in Sweden is where the blueberries live. Since my jumpsuit is navy-blue it’s the perfect thing to wear when picking blueberries. And I brought the camera!
I’ve made the pattern myself. The bottom is based on my pattern for “harem-like” sweatpants that I made a couple of years ago when I used to skate a lot and had a favorite pair of Etnies. Etnies is a brand that makes baggy jeans. One day I just simply copied them, then added a pair of centimeters between waist and crotch to get that “harem-feeling”. One day my sister used the pants and pulled them up high just to goof around – the idea for the jumpsuit was born!
I’ve added step-by-step instructions to make a jumpsuit like this using knit fabrics, a ribbed cotton knit or jersey. If you have any questions, fire em’ away!
