Sunny Days and DIY Jumpsuits are here to stay: Vogue 9116

Every time I see a wide leg jumpsuit, I think of my Mom.  You see when I was a yungin... jumpsuits were the uniform to wear.  It seems that every thing that was once is now, and any of the fashions which were then, are here again.  It is back, "OLD School" is new again.

I have made several jumpsuits in the last few years, a couple self drafted and a couple using patterns from Vogue and McCalls.  Now, everywhere I look,  I see a rise in the number of patterns available for this fun piece of clothing, and an onslaught of various renditions of said patterns by so many on Pinterest.

Pattern and Construction Details:
All was very easy.  The pattern instructions were easy, the sizing was easy. 
I cut a size 14 top and 16 bottom.  
1" FBA
Removed 4" from the pant legs because they were "WIDE" for sure.
After these pictures I hemmed them another 2"

I hope you are enjoying this resurgence of jumpsuit fashions.  I know my Mom is enjoying all the patterns coming back.  Something she is really familiar with.
