I have seen this dress all over Craftster, and I found the original pattern in my Moms horde with a guide for 13 different ways of wearing it. Amazing*

And for the Days you must wear pants the Jiffy Jumpsuit. I can actually remember my mom wearing this in eggplant, she was quite the Fashionista back in the day.

I scanned the back of the jumpsuit pattern and it shows 4 pieces front leg of pants bag leg of pants, waistband and a rectangular piece that makes the top. I will post a closer up pic and scan the instructions if you want, I just got housework to do first, so my teenagers can destroy it in an hour. It gives me a reason to live lol.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the original concept was by Halston, THE designer of the 70's. Nice find! If you don't choose to make them I'd bet they'd sell fairly well Smiley

oh, you can make them and sell them too! i never cut an actual pattern, i trace all the pieces onto tracing paper (i got a big roll from an art supply store) and cut that out then store it in an envelope with the original pattern. that way i can use the pattern over and over again and make all the sizes or resell it or give it away. a neat-o trick from design college Wink.

lol, the funny thing is I can tell when someone is typing distracted vs. just a poor typist vs. not being a master of the English language Smiley

Me? I'm a poor typist, hunt & peck all the way..... distracted typists don't bother me Smiley

I need the how-to-wear-it guide!  (I'm totally not creative like that! lol)

And one of the major pattern companies - can't recall which one - has a pattern like this out again.

I love the jumpsuit, I have the pattern. I've always wanted to make it, and I bet it would scare the crap out of MY teenagers if they came home and saw wearing this while cooking the dears the dinner! Maybe it's time...
