Ok besides the gorgeous Erica B and her white jumpsuit To Die For, is anyone else considering one?

I bought this pattern last year Burda and never got around to it. It seems jumpsuits are big again this year. And while it may not be the best for my figure, I've always loved them.

I bought some inexpensive linen blend fabric from Joann's to give this a shot. It's brown on brown stripes, vertical, so it might help elongate me. I think with some high heels it will look cute.

I'm not looking for validation cuz I'm doing it, just wondered if anyone else was.

Kim12469,

I admit to having an abiding fondness for jumpsuits -- and have several in my queue...

Awww... thank you! I have that Burda pattern as well. I plan to make the shorts. I'll be in AZ next month and I think it'll be great for the heat.

I loved Erica's as well (so pretty) but I need one that has sleeves, don't know when I'll get around to it though maybe next month.

When I have had jumpsuits in the past, either short of long I have worn them to death.

I am quite a bit rounder than I was the last time I had one, but would consider one again.

I have noticed jumpsuits making a comeback, but I can't get this memory from many years ago out of my mind. The time I had a little too much to drink and part of my jumpsuit fell in the toilet when going to bathroom, is enought to swear off jumpsuits. lol

Yes, the potty breaks, the downside to jumpsuits ;-) I'll just have to make a rule that there will be no imbibing while wearing it.

I see Burda has a jumpsuit for maternity wear. I can't imagine that. I was constantly in the bathroom when I was pregnant.

I remember a river-rafting romper/jumpsuit from some outdoor company. It had a soft invisible zipper in the crotch, and was designed to be user-friendly out in the wilderness, what with little shelter and the need to stay mostly clothed most of the time.

Anyhow, it makes me wonder if one couldn't use a crotch closure--at least on the looser jumpsuits--something like the snap tape they they put on babies' clothing. Such an innovation would certain help keep your jumpsuit from falling into the toilet!

I'm wanting to make the Simplicity 2374 jumpsuit soon. . .just deciding on the fabric. I was debating making a semi-sheer one to cover a swimsuit. . .thoughts?
Either way, I think they are super cute and perfect for summer!!
