Happy Monday ladies! I woke up this morning so excited to mix it up a bit and show you how to mix and match the projects we’ve already done together at Creative Fashion Blog to make entirely new pieces. Today we will learn how to make a DIY jumpsuit!
The Empowering Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits have a history that dates back several decades and their popularity has evolved over time. The modern jumpsuit, as we know it today, gained popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was heavily influenced by the fashion trends of the time, particularly the rise of the hippie and disco cultures.
The jumpsuit’s origins can be traced back even further to the early 20th century. In the 1910s and 1920s, jumpsuits were primarily worn as protective garments by workers, aviators, and parachutists. They were designed for functionality and practicality rather than fashion. However, it was in the 1960s and 1970s that jumpsuits began to make a fashion statement. They became particularly popular among women as a symbol of empowerment and freedom. Don’t you love that?
This DIY jumpsuit Ii’ll show you now is soooooo comfortable and super simple to make yourself. No pattern needed!
Hear Me Out
I know I know. That sounds crazy. But trust me. To create this amazing jumpsuit all you need to do is make two easy patterns: the palazzo pants we made together HERE and then sew them together with the DIY tube dress we made HERE. I just shortened the dress by measuring how long I wanted my dress/shirt to be before sewing it to the top of my pants.
The whole thing slips on and off really easily and makes you feel like a million bucks. The fact that it’s as comfortable as my pajamas is a major bonus!
What’s amazing is that when you’re done making both the palazzo pant and the strapless top, you’ll have built a fitted jumpsuit from pieces that are made to fit you. Not someone else. It isn’t some graph that a factory made that has no real consideration for how your body is actually shaped. Not what a specific brand thinks your body should be. Your jumpsuit will be crazy comfortable and look awesome because it fits you. You’re making your own pattern!
It’s the reason I started designing clothes in the first place. I’m a tall girl. Even “tall” jeans don’t fit right and for some reason most brands believe that if you have grasshopper legs, you must also have Kardashian hips. Nope. So I created clothes by sizing my own body measurements and grading them into different sizes. I used only the most comfortable, stretchy different fabrics and made sure everything flattered a woman’s body and made you feel more confident.
But back to this project:
