So after watching FN MTV Premieres a few weeks ago, I really, desperately want a jumpsuit like the one Katy Perry wore:


I tried looking for a pattern for something like this, but to no avail.

How would you go about making one? I do have sewing skills, not so much as drafting an actual pattern, but I can measure and cut out pieces.

=) thank youu.

::looks at the big floral print. has major high school flashbacks::

Go vintage my friend. Late 70's and early 80's all kinds of jumpers were trendy. Try Etsy, Ebay & (your best bet) thrift stores for a jumper pattern. Modifying for the diagonal zipper will be less of a challenge once you have a jumper pattern.

You might also want to search for the terms "romper" or "shortalls".

Darn you Katy Perry and your catchy sexual songs and awesome clothes...

The only thing I can think of is finding a pattern for a shirt like the top of her romper, then a pattern for shorts like the bottom of her jumper, then sewing them together... if that makes sense!

Good luck!

sooo i realize that this topic is rather old now and i don't know if anyone is checking it anymore, but imyourpresent at etsy makes super cute rompers somewhat like this, and she actually also uses a floral occasionally that is like this one.  i love her stuff so much!  anyways, you can find her at www.imyourpresent.etsy.com  Enjoy!

I'm looking to trade for kawaii Japanese fabric or cabochons!  PM me if you're interested!
