Vogue 2671 c. 1980s - Anne Klein Jumpsuit
Very loose-fitting dress or straight-legged jumpsuit has extended shoulders, below waistline seam, partially elasticized self-drawstring, self or contrast pants and skirt and side seam pockets. Pants have narrow hem. Edgestitch and topstitch.
Fabrics: Soft or crisp fabrics: lightweight crepe, silk broadcloth, challis, tissue faille, gauze and crepe de chine.
The yellow jumpsuit is the item I sewed with this pattern in the early 80s, using a butter cream yellow crepe de chine. A terrible color for me actually, but I was still a few years away from having my colors analyzed. Turned out that I was a winter and yellow - especially light yellows 0 are one color I could never wear.
The jumpsuit was sewn to wear when I went dancing. You know, jumpsuits were really popular and some of them were really cute, but they sure weren't very practical for wearing any length of time!
