Retro 70's Culotte Jumper pattern

I've been going through boxes of sewing stuff from my Mom's house, and in one of them I found this great pattern, Butterick 5139 from the mid 70's by designer Gil Aimbez:

I had a ton of jumpsuit type patterns, and culotte type patterns, but this one was the only one to combine both of these great 70's fashion genres!  Then as I went through another box, I found this:
I must have been about 13 or 14 when I made it.   Boy, was this a pain to put on.  I don't remember wearing it, but then again, there are a lot of 70's fashion moments that I've chosen to forget!  This is corduroy- another 70's love of mine. 
Look closely, and you can see the quilting detail on the bib part.  If only I can find a photo of me with my Farah Fawcett hairstyle, this memory would be complete!  Aw, I am so pining away for the good old days right now.  Does anyone else remember this one?

Happy Sewing!
