Jumpsuits for women is a trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Having first worn them aged 16 in the late seventies and then again in the 90’s. I was at first reluctant to jump back on the band wagon. However after recently buying this one to wear in Summer. I altered my mindset. Why was I reluctant to try? Because;
- I have doubled in size and weight since then, even my toes are bigger (Why?)
- They say if you were old enough to wear it the first time around you are probably to old to wear it the second time around, never mind the third! blah blah blah
- On a more practical note, I have a long body and always find the crutch seam too short. Nobody mention the phrase ‘camel toe’ please! Insert shocked face emoji here.

Today in my sixtieth year, I don’t give a damn about the rules, or what people think of me. I want to be comfortable and free to express my own style. I have just bought this loose fitting Jumpsuit and a pattern or three to make my own with.
