Description

The Burnside Bibs are versatile overalls that can be dressed up or down. Shoulder straps transition to narrow ties with several options for tying.

  • Intermediate level pattern
  • This pattern is standard size 00-20

The Burnside Bibs have two front bib options – a scooped neck or the traditional straight front. Both bibs work with either version #1 or version #2.

  • Version #1 is a more fitted back pant with back waist darts and an invisible side zipper opening with less gathering in the back.
  • Version #2 is a loose 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 that transition to narrower ties that thread through back waist belt loops forming back waist gathers. They may be tied in many ways – at the back, front or sides. The wide leg can be made full length or cropped.

Fabrics: For a dressed up version choose light to mid-weight woven fabrics such as Tencel, linen, wool gabardine, or sandwashed silk.

  • For a casual version choose denim, canvas, or cotton twill.
  • 12″ invisible zipper required for version #1
  • Lightweight fusible interfacing

Sundries: 7-9″/18-23 cm invisible zipper (Version #1 only), thread, lightweight fusible interfacing (see Fabric Requirements for amounts)
