Closet Core Patterns | Jenny Overalls

5 items left

Inspired by vintage work-wear, Jenny is a modern interpretation of classic overalls and wide-leg trousers with ultra-high rise, sleek, functional details and a comfortable all-day-long fit.

Make a more sophisticated version of dungarees with our well-proportioned bib and optional utility pocket, or omit the bib entirely and make a pair of wide-legged cropped pants, full-length pants or shorts. Optional details abound; mix and match the curved slash front pockets, faux fly front, single or double zipper waistband and rounded back patch pockets. To personalize even further, go all out with high contrast topstitching, or take a more minimalist approach for a clean, elegant finish.

This pattern includes a printed paper pattern plus an instruction booklet guiding you through the sewing process step by step.

    I really like this pattern. It’s a classic jumper.
    I had to really squeeze the fabric measurements to fit the pattern on, so get a little bit extra fabric than what the pattern asks for.

    Great little shop!

    I ordered some patterns and fabric a few days apart from each other. Both arrived super quickly - only a few days! The patterns were exactly as shown and a lot of their patterns have extended sizes (HURRAY!). The fabric was high quality and the design very rich and unique.

    So happy with service and quality. Has been marked as a new favorite site.
