Inspiration : World War 2 Ladies Jumpsuits

I love these jumpsuits!
Has anyone ever made one or does anyone have a pattern they might want to sell to me? These are really scarce and I have never found one for sale. It seems easy enogh to make a pattern though. I could use a wide legged pant and just add a bodice from another pattern like in the first photo.

    I love the 40’s jumpsuit. Patterns for these are very far and few and the one’s available are out of my price range. Maybe, one day I will create something similar from scratch. The top jumpsuit is darling!

    I lived in jumpsuits in the early 1970’s. Long ones were very fashionable for travel, but not so very practical – it turns out – in the restrooms of TransAtlantic flights. The short ones, however, is the best, the very best, hot, humid, deep Summer outfits, I’ve ever had. AND Yes, I made all of the short ones and several of the long ones.

    wow! I actually have that second jumpsuit – it looks exactly the same as the photo (colour, style and the way it sits although mine does not have green buttons). Mine is clearly from the 70s though as it’s in a rather thick polyester – the brand is simply ‘Modern Style’. I bought it in a teeny op shop (in Australia) maybe 10 years ago and I wore it to uni all the time – its a little too short in the body for me these days though (what with the bit of extra padding, ahem!) but I haven’t been able to part with it yet.
    The top jumpsuit is more me these days, I definitely have my sites on sewing a similar one soon.
