Zip Up Overalls

Placentia, Calif...






I have a crush on overalls at the moment. For this project I used Burdastyle’s 6/2014 #106 pattern. I have made overalls in the past but this pattern caught my eye because it had the slight flare on the bottom and the zip up the front. I was just curious to find out how it would turn out because the magazine’s photo didn’t offer a better view on the model.

Let me begin by saying that zip up the front was challenging for me. I just couldn’t get it right. Normally I cut a size 36 without including the extra 5/8 inch inseam because it usually fits me fine. This time I should have added that inseam. It was a bit fitted and I had to alter that flare around the hem because it really had a weird fluted effect. However, it made it easier to roll up the hem which seems to be the trend with these overalls.

I also need to wear a belt with this outfit. It breaks up the onesie effect.
This was not too difficult and the magazine offers instructions.

Material Notes

2 yards of lightweight denim, 20 inch zipper, overall fasteners, thread

    These are so cute! Your overalls look better than the pair in the magazine and thanks for the note on the fit. I’ve been searching for a cute pair of overalls lately in RTW and these look a lot like a $450 pair from either Rag and Bone or Frame! Inspiring.

      Thank you! Yes. I have been having so much trouble with my remote when taking photos that I had to resort to using the timer and then rushing back to stand in front of the camera.

      Thank you LIliv! I forgot to add that the best kind of denim for this pattern is a lightweight denim. My first pair was made with heavy denim and it just feels so hot to wear them.
