The Blanca Flight Suit is a semi-fitted, highly customizable boiler suit pattern inspired by vintage workwear. With multiple sleeve and leg options, it can be made in a variety of fabrics and can easily be styled up or down.

Blanca features a center front zipper, patch pockets that double as belt loops, an optional tie belt or buckled belt, a traditional shirt collar and a unique pleated back design. Customize your flight suit by adding a long sleeve, tapered sleeve with a snap button, or short sleeve. The leg is cut straight, with the option to crop it or taper at the hem with a leg tab. In addition, choose between a classic breast patch pocket or zippered pocket for added detail

I love this pattern.

I toiled this just to make sure but I needn’t have bothered. I have two gorgeous jumpsuits and I see more in my future. The instructions are great it is well cut. Just what you would expect from closet core patterns.

Beautiful, and so easy to follow

I've been sewing for a long time, but mostly without patterns. I really wanted to make a boiler suit, so that's how I came across this pattern. This was by far the most elaborate pattern I've ever tried, so I was afraid I would mess up a lot on the first try.
Not at all! The instructions were clear, and the pictures in the Sewalong were super helpful too. I learnt SO many new methods while sewing this.
I went a little funky with some thrifted fabric and zipper I had lying around for my first try. Love the result.

Flight suit of my dreams

Loved this!! I tapered between a top 26- 28 bottom and then shortened and tapered the leg. I could not be happier with the end result! The sew along really help this average sewer!!

So cool!

I made a test version in a fun plum faux linen and I love them! All the details and construction methods are laid out really clearly, making this a fun pattern to sew. It was a little tight through the thighs on me, so I added some fabric after they were done, and I'll definitely need to extend the torso length for future sets, but I still love them. I already have a shorts version cut out and ready to sew, with my adjustments.

Sews up a dream

I made no alterations and it was such a joy to sew. I did make one mistake, the zip I had was just a bit short (my fault for not reading the notions section!) it did make it a bit of a struggled to get off, but this was the toile so no worries. Next make will be a heavier cotton drill, ready for winter.
