I've been looking all over the net and asking around at the local sewing marts, but I can't find any good jumpsuit/coverall pattern. I'm looking for something like a uniform. I found a bunch of vintage patterns, but they're all "fashion" patterns. I found one that's PERFECT- but it's for men. (http://www.candleonthehill.net/store/catalog.php?item=167

For reference, I'm trying to make one Fallout 3 costume and one Portal costume, so I really want to buy a pattern as opposed to buying TWO jumpsuits (and probably having to alter them anyway).

Any recommendations would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have no idea what Fallout 3 jumpsuit looks like :/ can you post a pic to help us out?

Even the female jumper patterns from the 80's really wouldn't work well. That one is probably your best bet. If cargo pockets are involved you could probably involve a whole 'nother pattern just for that.

Why can't you use the mens pattern? As long as you use the right size, it should work out fine. It's designed to be worn over clothes, so unless you have extremely large breasts, it ought to fit just fine. The only worry would be the length, but shortening it should be easy. :3
