Mechanic's clothing is featured as a trendy item on Burda's German website currently. Seriously, who would make this? There are more of them, if you care to look. Couldn't you just go down and buy some Dickies?

The fabric those Burda overalls are made of isn't something I'd be changing the oil in.

I think this is meant to be a new take on vintage 1970's/80's jumpsuits, for example, this one from the 1970's:



They aren't really meant to be worn by those of us who were already adults in the 70's and 80's.

Burda's little item there is made of Seide (silk). Although she's hanging on the plane's wing, she's going to be a passenger in there, not the mechanic. I do find something vaguely offensive in this Dickie's-upgrade kind of thing, but it seems to be a trend.

I had a few jumpsuits in the late '80's. They were a really good look for me. I was sad to see them go out of fashion. I have a celery shape (no shape at all if not wearing a highly padded bra and belt), shorter legs, long torso. A jumpsuit worn with a wide belt was very flattering.
I saved 2 Calvin Klein versions for years, then finally realized they weren't coming back.

I could wear them in the '80's but not any longer. Mine was faux denim with bedazzler stones and things put on the yoke. This should probably go into the ugliest pattern you've ever made thread.

I wasn't adult in 70s and 80s, and I think jumpsuits are interesting. I'm not sure if it works for me though. Aren't they more flattering for taller figure?

Yes, probably... most fashion is most flattering on tall, thin, young people. But oh, well! Wear whatever you enjoy and what you think suits you.

Well, I saw one in SewStylish Spring 2011 with linen like fabric. It's more like an overall. I thought it was cute.

If memory serves, one had to be a bit careful in the loo, otherwise the upper part of the jumpsuit tried to get an inadvertent bath!

Maybe this is why they went out of style the first time.
