Burnside Bibs Pattern
The Burnside Bibs are not your traditional work overalls. They are comfortable and easy to wear, yet they are much more stylish and feminine than traditional versions. The straps that transition to narrower ties offer many options for how they can be tied. And, we as sewists are able to influence how casual or dressed up they become simply by fabric choice.
Version #1 is a more fitted back pant with back waist darts and an invisible side zipper opening, however, the ties still form a small amount of gathers at the back waist.Version #2 is a looser back pant that slips on over your hips and does not have a closure to sew. This version is fuller and more gathered in the back. Use your hip measurement to determine your size for version #2.
Both versions also feature a front waistband, curved front patch pockets, optional back pockets, and cross-back straps. The legs are somewhat wide and can be made full length or cropped. Choose from either a scooped neck or a traditional straight front bib for either version.
Suggested Fabrics: For a casual look choose a fabric such as chambray, linen, or twill. For a more dressed up look, use a fabric with some drape such as tencel or silk.
