Printed Jumpsuit

Hey guys! Happy New Month! Today, I am sharing my latest Sew along project.
I entered this printed jumpsuit into the The Vintage Contest on The contest required me to make an outfit using a sewing pattern issued before 1980. I picked the pattern because I have never owned a jumpsuit in my life and I figured it was about time. Although the actual pattern I used is from 1976, the resulting outfit is pretty modern.

The Simplicity 7748 pattern was not significantly different from a modern pattern, in my opinion. The instructions were pretty straightforward. I particularly loved that there were only two pattern pieces required for construction. All in all, I am very happy with the result.
