1940’s Overalls (Simplicity 8447)


I made overalls! These have been on my to do list for some time. I had the pants finished for a month before finally finishing them up a couple weekends ago. I was a little nervous to make them because it was my first time sewing with denim. I am so happy with how they turned out! I used a light-medium weight denim so it wasn’t bad at all. I definitely plan on making a denim skirt sometime over the winter so it was good to ease into it. The only change I made to the pattern was that I opted to put the pants pocket on the back instead of the front.


I have to mention this little fox pin. I bought it from The Woodland Fox on Etsy. It’s a handpainted wooden Ash from Fantastic Mr. Fox. I just love that movie.
