Sew House Seven Patterns : Burnside Bibs
Version 1 : overalls with a somewhat fitted back pant with back waist darts and an invisible zipper and a scooped neck bib front.
Version 2 : overalls with a looser back pant that slips on over your hips and does not have a closure to sew. It has a straight front bib.
Both versions also feature a front waistband, curved front patch pockets, optional back pockets, and cross-back straps that transition to narrower ties that thread through back waist belt loops to form gathers at the back waist. The ties may be tied at the back front or sides. The legs are somewhat wide and can be made full length or cropped.
Recommended Fabrics: For a more utilitarian and casual look use fabrics such as denim, canvas, stiff linen or cotton twill. For a dressy, flowy version use light to mid-weight woven fabrics that are not too stiff and preferably with some drape such as tencel, linen, wool gabardine, or sandwashed silk.
