On Good Day LA Style File they did a fashion forecast and said jumpsuits and rompers are back in style. Ever since the late '70's I've been wondering why they hadn't been brought back. Much like a dress, where it's easy to throw on and wear, jumpsuits make it super simple to get dressed. My mom loved wearing rompers too. Now if they'd just bring back culottes.
The one thing to be careful about when making a jumpsuit is to get the crotch length right. Otherwise you'll end up with a permanent wedgie and it will drive you nuts. Adjust the crotch length on the pattern if you need too.
Somehow I don't think I'm going to look the same in a jumpsuit as I did in the 70's though.
