Blanca Flight Suit Pattern
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 a 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
Sizes: 0-20 (print and PDF) and 14-32 (PDF)
- For a structured look, use sturdy woven fabrics like denim, twill, canvas and mid to heavyweight linen and cotton. For a softer effect, choose mid-weight fabrics with drape, such as tencel twill, cupro or silk noil.

Lovely pattern, with easy to follow instructions. I love all the topstitching details! I found this came up quite narrow in the hips so had to do some adjusting but otherwise fit really well - I've made two in the past three months!
I toiled this just to make sure but I needn’t have bothered. I have two gorgeous jumpsuits and I see more in my future. The instructions are great it is well cut. Just what you would expect from closet core patterns.
I've been sewing for a long time, but mostly without patterns. I really wanted to make a boiler suit, so that's how I came across this pattern. This was by far the most elaborate pattern I've ever tried, so I was afraid I would mess up a lot on the first try.
Not at all! The instructions were clear, and the pictures in the Sewalong were super helpful too. I learnt SO many new methods while sewing this.
I went a little funky with some thrifted fabric and zipper I had lying around for my first try. Love the result.
Loved this!! I tapered between a top 26- 28 bottom and then shortened and tapered the leg. I could not be happier with the end result! The sew along really help this average sewer!!
I made a test version in a fun plum faux linen and I love them! All the details and construction methods are laid out really clearly, making this a fun pattern to sew. It was a little tight through the thighs on me, so I added some fabric after they were done, and I'll definitely need to extend the torso length for future sets, but I still love them. I already have a shorts version cut out and ready to sew, with my adjustments.
