Not-A-Jumpsuit Velvet Blouse
Disclaimer: This is not a jumpsuit.
When jumpsuits hit the scene in the late 1930s, they were touted as “so easy” to wear; their utility nature (remember, the term was derived from airmen literally jumping out of planes), upscaled by designers, started a craze. So chic. So easy.
The results are the same here but better because this comes in two pieces, sparing you from climbing in and out of anything.
The luxurious silk-blend panne velvet is golden-era elegant. From a time when women would walk down a gazillion flight of stairs in high heels and a “jumpsuit” like this.
The satin trim accents the waistband and slant pockets, creating the illusion of a one- piece while simultaneously dazzling it up.
I’m sure you’ve got the heels.
How about those gazillion or so stairs?
Not-A-Jumpsuit Velvet Blouse (No. 5821). Fitted long sleeve blouse in a silk-blend panne velvet. V-neckline at front and back. Satin ribbon ties at back neck. Shaping princess seams in the front and shaping darts in the back. Body is lined in a poly crepe de chine. Tucks nicely into the satin-waisted pants for the jumpsuit look.
