I'm trying to find a pattern for a man's one piece coverall - like the mechanics wear. The DH wants a one piece rainsuit for his motorcycle riding and it's the only thing I can thing of that would be suitable. Anyone seen anything that may work?? Laura

I realize that you are looking for a pattern for these. But I just wanted to offer another suggestion if you can't find the pattern. My DH wanted the same type of rain wear also. He worked up in Washington at an aircraft repair shop. And it rained all of the time. I finally found a coverall-type rain gear at a harbor supply place. DH is a big bubba and it was hard to find his size. The kind I found was for professional fishermen. (Not the sportsman type, the real shrimp boat guys) I had my fingers "do the walking" to find them.
Or another suggestion might be to take a skiing bib pants pattern and try to adjust that. I have seen these speciality type patterns at Joann's and also at Hancock Fabrics. Try checking out their website for patterns. I hope that this has been helpful. I will keep an eye out to see if I can find something else for you.
