Farm to fab

Overalls don't have to be just for farmers and kids. At least that's my argument.

Not that farmers and kids don't rock them. I just think they can be street chic too.


I'm all about experimenting with trends. What's the worst thing that can happen? You look ridiculous and people make fun of you? Okay, on second thought that doesn't sound great, but don't think overalls are that risky of a move so I think I'm okay. Hah!


If you're here to shop the look, scroll down. If you're here to get the details for pattern choice and fabric stick with me.


As spring approaches, and boy I'm I glad, I've wanted to start making pieces that I can wear now, but also again as it starts to warm up. I thought overalls would be perfect. Slap a sweater with it, or light off shoulder top. I went with a McCall's pattern (direct link here). And this AMAZING charcoal denim with gold sparkle. I think this is it (direct link here), but not positive as I purchased mine in store.


I had some questions about sizing, so I'll tell you what worked for me. I was in-between sizes so I ended up cutting right between the 6 & the 8. The fitting was perfect. We (mom and I) didn't have to make any adjustments at all, other than length. I'm 5'4 but like wearing tall heels, so we only took about an inch off the bottom. I have a natural high waist, and have trouble finding true "high waisted" jeans and expected these to fall a little low, but they didn't. This pattern is perfect for my body type. So to all my high waisted friends out there I highly recommend this pattern.


I had several responses to my Instagram posts that some of you had purchased the pattern and were planning to make one of your own. If you're reading this please tag or private message me. I would LOVE to see it! I want to see how you make it your own. If I left out any details, or if anyone has any questions please hit me up!
