You will feel like an adventure is on the horizon, when you jump into a jumpsuit that you can wear all year round! The staples of any retro wardrobe should include designs based on vintage 1960s Pedal Pushers patterns or a baggy jumpsuit sewing patterns or our Rosie the Riveter simple dungaree pattern. Playful and chic, check-out our classic patterns include high waisted trouser or pants patterns. These pants in first in vogue in the 1920s and still popular today. They were high waisted and wide legged but not the oversized drapery of extreme beach pajamas. The trend was a nautical one with big white sailor buttons up the fronts and a stripe down the side. A wide cuffed hem was also part of the fashion.

In the 1940s there was a Land Army uniform of green jumpers, brown breeches or dungarees, brown felt hats, khaki overcoats and land army trousers. During this period you would have seen a land girl typically wearing her brown twill overall, worn over a forest green sweater, her waist nipped in with a broad warm brown belt.

In modern English, the use of the word culottes can mean a close fitting pair of pants ending at the knees and was popularised during the early 1980s. The term is used as such in the United Kingdom and Canada. In this sense, culottes are similar to the American knickerbockers (knickers), except whereas the latter are loose in fit. Culottes can also, in some cases, describe a split or bifurcated skirt or any garment which "hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants". Why not take a look at our vintage Culotte jumpsuit patterns.
