The Capsule Piece: A pair of overalls is listed in the spring capsule I’m using and if I had seen this last year I would have scoffed and carried on without every making or buying them. However, I am now an overall/dungaree convert after making my Sew House Seven Burnside Bibs about this time last year. There is just nothing comfier than a soft pair of linen overalls and I was excited to make another pair.
The Pattern and the Fabric: This project came from my April Needlesharp Box. I’ve talked about this subscription service before, but man is it handy with a project like this when really specific hardware or notions are needed. I love that absolutely everything comes in the box ready to sew up!
These are the Harlene Dungarees by Merchant and Mills. I’ve never sewed with this company before and am really impressed by the quality of this pattern! This fabric is a speckled linen and I love how these kind of look like I’ve been painting in them all day.
Details: There is only one version of this pattern and I made the size 10 with no adjustments. Initially I lengthened the straps but ended up trimming them. Rarely are ready to wear overalls long enough in the body and/or inseam for me so I was kind of surprised these fit so well straight out of the pattern envelope.
This kit came with a Kylie and the Machine hardware kit and I love this product so much. Finding cute notions for jeans and dungarees is a little tricky and sometime expensive because you have to buy a bunch of different things. This kit is something to look for if you’re making your own dungarees. I found them here and will put them on my list next time I’m getting notions!
How I plan to wear it: These are going to be something I throw on for cozy, stay at home and play days. I like them with longer sleeves as well as cropped tank tops underneath. I imagine they will look cute rolled up with sandals as it gets warmer too!
