Build Your Own Playsuit Options

You don't have to have a "playsuit" pattern to make a playsuit! Here are some great separates that would be perfect of integrating into your playsuit ensemble.


Looking for a more modest 1930s option? Try the Smooth Sailing Blouse from Wearing History. It's available an it's own as an e-pattern or with the Smooth Sailing Trousers in a paper pattern.

For a fun and flirty bottom, try Wearing History's Rita Pleated Shorts! I just adore my version! This pattern is great for late 30s-mid 40s.


Wanting a romper for your playsuit? Wearing History's 1940s Home Front Overalls pattern include a romper option. It's too cute!

Bra tops were really popular for playsuits. Eva Dress offers this cute multi-sized pattern with four bra tops to choose from!


I also just adore this 50s summer top pattern from Eva Dress. I really love the wrap around style in view 2!

Looking for an all in one pattern? Check out this post. Also, coming up are vintage playsuit patterns.


  1. Love this idea and all of the fun, summery pieces featured here. That Smooth Sailing blouse in particular is right up my alley.

  2. Oh that Smooth Sailing blouse pattern is the BEST. I've used it a million times, it's a wardrobe staple :)
