Where did the jumpsuit come from?

How the overall became a trend and what you always wanted to know about this all-rounder you can find out here. The blue overalls were invented between 1891 and 1916 in the USA. At that time only men wore it. This changed during the First World War when women also put on the one-piece suits during factory work. In the beginning, the overall was made of jeans and had a button facing or a zipper for easy access. The step into the world of fashion was only made a few decades later, when the fabric, colour and cut changed thanks to a wide range of design possibilities. In the 70s the jumpsuit became socially acceptable. In the early 80s, dance films such as Saturday Night Fever or Flash Dance helped it to become a popular disco outfit. According to the Duden dictionary, a jumpsuit is a one-piece suit that covers the entire body and is worn especially for protection during certain jobs. That’s right, because it was originally designed for this purpose by Levi Strauss and Henry David Lee.

His long arms and legs covered the body “over all”, i.e. everywhere, and protected workers from work-related injuries and dirt at the beginning of the 20th century. Women and men now wore the blue overalls made of corduroy, jeans and stretchy fabrics – gaudy, colourful and with wide trouser legs and danced in this look to ABBA & Co. In the middle of the 90s the dungarees replaced it. The jumpsuit fell into oblivion. It was not until 2009 that overalls reappeared as chic fashion highlights on catwalks in Paris, Milan and New York. Designers reinterpreted the one-piece suit: instead of being worn in factories, jumpsuits can now be seen on the beach, at parties or in the office. The classic adapted to the zeitgeist. Today overalls and jumpsuits are among the must-haves of the fashion world and it is impossible to imagine the world without them. The one-piece suit shows its versatility especially this season.

  1. Hi there,
    I would be really interested in buying a basic bodice, sleeve, and dress pattern that I can use make my own pattern. Please consider making one available on your website. I would definitely buy that to add to my collection of basic bodice/sleeve/dress pattern (I have one from Burda style, it would be interesting to compare yours and theirs).

    Thank you
