Hi everybody:) This is made of brown jersey, it looks like an overall but it is seperate top and pants. I used a burda magazine pattern for the top, which I made long enough and added a tunnel with elastic at the bottom: when it is worn the hem goes to the waist and the top has a soft bubble look. I finished the upper of the top with a doubled band. I also added a narrow strap which ties at the front connection point. For the pants I used as a pattern guide an old pair of rtw pants which I unstiched. I widened a bit the pants downwards gathered the hem and finished them with a doubled band. It was a very easy and quick project. It is also very easy to wear and comfortable.
Thanks for looking!

I'm not usually a jumpsuit fan, cause they always ride high in the crotch and your only comfortable when you stand, but that.....I could live in that!! It just looks so stretchy and soft and comfy....

I'm not a jumpsuit fun either. The main reason is that you have to take off the whole garment everytime you have to use the bathroom:P And of course you are right that they are uncomfortable, another good reason to hate them! This is one the most comfortable pieces of clothing in my closet together with my pajamas:) Thanks for stopping by Tenitsu!

This is adorable! I love the look of it as all together while it's actually two pieces. Fantastic!  Cheesy

You look well put together.  I think having two pieces would make the fitting much more custom.

I love the look of jumpsuits.  I have been wanting to try the wrap around/drop seat jumpsuit violentjane designed and I certainly would be open to doing a two piece jumpsuit-look as well!

Plus, I bet you can wear the top and bottom with other things in your wardrobe!  Excellent outfit!

Thanks a lot mybabyisacommunist!! Violentjayne thank you for your kind comment, having looked many times at your sewing projects I know you love jumpsuits and jumpsuits love you back you look gorgeous in them! Alwaysinmyroom you are so right about customizing the fit, I think a jumpsuit is the hardest thing for a sewer to make it fit right. This is a big issue for me because I'm very short and I always work with pattern made for 1,68 cm height. But this particular design (which I knocked off from a rtw jumpsuit that I had tried) is very easy to customize even as a jumpsuit and doesn't feel uncomfortable (the ride high in the crotch) because of the jersey fabric. I just made it two piece for the bathroom reason I mentioned!! It's somehow like the nursing tops he he he!!!

Great idea! Jumpsuits/overalls are not good for us ladies are they? Your idea of top and pant separate is much better! Great job:)
