Friends - DIY Jumpsuit/Pant Pattern (2018)

I’d like to introduce you to some friends of mine - J and P (jumpsuit and pants)! The idea of these garments being friends was inspired by the Constructivist artists of the early 20th century.  They thought of their everyday art objects as friends or comrades, and equals, rather than as possessions or commodities of desire. I really love the idea of treating my clothing items as I would a loved one, respecting their agency and creating space for them in my life for a long term. I made my friends in the spring of 2017 and it didn't take long before we started spending most of our days together. I anticipate we’ll all be pals for a very long time! I invite you all to make some friends - the full pattern and DIY sewing instructions are forthcoming.
