Description

I used Cyndi Oates’ pattern to make my second overalls. This time I wanted a darker wash and a lighter denim which is much more comfortable. Even though I cut this smaller from the original pattern it still looks roomy but I’m feeling happier with the fit especially around the hips. I had fun making this. I know it’ll get a lot of wear.
That’s my puggle Charlie who was really patient with me. He adores me no matter what I sew.

Material Notes

(2) 1 and 1/4 inch buckles by dritz, 4 silver no sew buttons, 1 and a 1/2 yards of light weight denim, two spools of white thread, interfacing

    I agree with Mary – these look so well made and great on you. Sadly I think my overall wearing days are far behind me, but it is a style I love on other people!

      Thank you! I didn’t care for overalls at all when they were in fashion back in the nineties but then I saw this remarkable leather ones recently. I just thought, hmmm those could be cool, why not?!
