Flight suit/coveralls for a petite woman
« on: Apr 15, 2010, 04:57 PM »
Hey, I was wondering if anyone knew of a website that had flight suits is small sizes, hopefully in gray?  I'm a petite (5'2") 22 year old girl, and I really want a gray flight suit for my kit, and would like to not have to do too many alterations. Thanks in advance for any help

Thank you for posting this! I was actually thinking of making a post like this one  but you beat me to it ;)

I'm 5'3"ish and my sewing machine is on the fritz. It's really hard to find something that'll fit me without either dragging off my feet or looking like I'm wearing a circus tent :( Or worse, charging $200 for something that would actually work.

 If anyone has any resources, please send them my way too!

Actual flightsuits are hard to come by for women. Most go with 2 piece track suits, or anything of the like where one can match colors on top and bottom and "seal" with a girth belt.

Finding one that doesn't make me look like I'm swimming in it is gonna be hard and since I can't sew but my mom can, more so. Length wise I don't really care as I would like to have some knee high boots I can tuck the legs into, and shin armor on top, so that's not too much of an issue. Hemming the legs wouldn't be hard, I just worry that trying to take in a one piece suit like that would be more trouble than it's worth.

I know how you feel.  My wife's a skinny, average height woman, and we're on a walmart clothing budget.  We have the choice of oversized, oversized, oversized, Hanna Montana-branded, or jailbait tramp clothes.  Good thing for us I can sew... I'm still working on flightsuits though.  If you're still looking in a couple months I might be able to make you something.

This made me lol...mostly because I'm in the exact same situation. Except I'm not even average height. I'm only 5'1. :P

My first "flightsuit" was a long sleeve top and leggings dyed to match, but I was never really happy with it since I prefer a more classic look.  I then made a two piece suit that buttons together at the waist which I occasionally still wear, but I now have a traditional one-piece with Fett style sleeves. I found a grey cotton twill with a slight stretch to it and tailored the suit to fit, with bust darts and everything. I love it.

The point is, the best option for petite girls who want a traditional look is to either sew it up yourself or find someone to make it for you.
