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

Pattern Difficulty: Advanced

Fabric Recommendations: 

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.

Notions:

  • Medium weight fusible interfacing (0.5yd/0.5m for 45” wide interfacing)
  • Pocket lining (0.25 yd/0.25m)
  • Polyester thread in matching colour
  • Non-separating zipper (use metal teeth for sturdy fabrics and plastic for lighter weight fabrics). Please note a longer zipper may be used and trimmed to size- separating zippers can also be used if properly closed with a bar tack.
  • Optional: Topstitching thread in contrast colour
  • Optional: 2 x 5” non-separating zipper for zippered breast pocket
  • Optional: 2 x 1/2” snap buttons for optional tapered sleeve
  • Optional: 4 x 5/8” regular buttons for optional tapered pant hem tab
  • Optional: 1.5” buckle closure for optional buckle belt
