80’s oversized overall with monkey lining!

I made this oversized overall as a present for my youngest sister Pamella when she did the rite of confirmation (affirmation of baptism). I used the pattern Simplicity 9563 and added some lining in the legs that will show if she chooses to fold them legs. I also put the side buttons a bit further away to create some “gathers” and help indicate the waist.

For the leg lining I used a turquoise fabric with monkey prints. It’s the same as for one of the t-shirts I made for my boyfriends godson (only this fabric is not jersey but 100% cotton).

Material Notes

6 buttons, 2 overall snaps, tweed for the overall and cotton for the lining.

    I have been trying to find the pattern you mentioned but it doesn’t come up on Google. I have been looking for an overall pattern for ages (but with a skirt) and yours is adorable! LOVE the lining.

      Thanks :)
      A tip is to look at ebay.com or ebay.co.uk, there’s a lot of patterns like the one you’re looking for!

      Ohh, I’ll have a look. I’ve been after a decent pair of dungarees for ages. Yours look amazing :)
