  1. I am Living for these overalls!!

    Posted by Capi Zabala on 17th Mar 2014

    I am living for these overalls! The fit is amazing, they seem to just hug the body so well, and are so feminine. I purchased the paper version and the quality of paper the pattern is printed on is fantastic! My only regret is the challenges I hit when it was time to add the facing/placket on the side. I put the front facing in backwards and had to rip it out after I'd serged and top stitched. I am definitely making them again, and am planning the trousers without the overalls portion!

  2. Fantastic!

    I've been waiting for a pattern like this for years and you didn't disappoint! The sizing is good, instructions are easy to follow and end result was fantastic! Thanks so much for having this available. I can't wait to try more patterns . Loved you so much I blogged about you. www(DOT)makeitwithme(DOT)ca

  3. So versatile and cute- great for plus sizes too

    I am so in love with this pattern! I made the jeans and overalls both in denim in size 44. The jeans came together so quick and I didn't need to make any pattern adjustments at all. The overalls required a few small alterations in the bust and waistband because I fall between sizes but still turned out beautifully with easy to follow instructions. I will be sewing these in all kinds of colors and fabrics to prepare for fall and winter. See the photos on the blog

  4. Cute 40s Denim

    Posted by Stephanie on 14th Jun 2013

    Love this pattern! Not only can you do so much with it (overalls, pants, shorts and playsuit), it's so stinking cute! This pattern gives a really flattering shape and a bit of girliness with the sweetheart neckline. I do recommend a muslin. The pattern does have a period 40s rise which may feel a bit odd to someone who's used to modern jeans. I didn't end up adjusting the rise on my pair but if you prefer a more modern rise, you will want to adjust it. I was between hip sizes so I went with the larger size and I had plenty of room.

    So far, I've made a pair of shorts and overalls in denim and a linen playsuit and I really want to try a pair of jeans next!
