from $16.00 USD

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

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.

Fantastic pattern!

I love this pattern! I was a little nervous about starting it, but it was much more straight forward than i thought, and the instructions are very detailed if you get stuck. I am 5'3" b36/w28/h38 and I made a straight size 8, and raised the waist seam by 2" with no other changes, I was very impressed with the fit! I absolutely will be sewing this pattern again 💛
