I think it’s time we talked about David Bowie.
Specifically Ziggy-Stardust-era David Bowie.
Specifically his knit onesies (jumpsuits?).
Have you seen these? And if, so did you realize they were knit?
(Also, can you imagine performing a big rock show like that covered head-to-toe in wool? I love my sweaters, but that’s just crazy. Though, I guess no one ever accused David Bowie of being a practical person.)
I’m kind of obsessed with these outfits, designed in the 70s by avant-garde fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto. I only wish there was a socially acceptable place for people to wear knit one-arm-one-leg-colorworked onesies in public.
You could make a plain one for yourself with this pattern:
