Jenny Overalls by Closet Case Patterns

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

Make a more sophisticated version of dungarees with a well-proportioned bib and optional utility pocket, or omit the bib entirely and make a pair of wide-legged cropped trousers, full-length trousers 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. Find the Jenny pattern in the shop here.
