4 items left

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 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.

Great little shop!

I ordered some patterns and fabric a few days apart from each other. Both arrived super quickly - only a few days! The patterns were exactly as shown and a lot of their patterns have extended sizes (HURRAY!). The fabric was high quality and the design very rich and unique.

So happy with service and quality. Has been marked as a new favorite site.
