Chances are you’ve seen some versions of the Burnside Bibs from Sew House Seven floating around the internet. We are so in love with Olivia’s take on the pattern that we had to share it with you!
This pattern has been on our list of things to sew since its release back in June 2017. The Bibs are an updated, more feminine version of classic overalls, with a gathered waist and ties. Great for all seasons and occasions, these can be made up in linen, rayon, denim and more – choose your own adventure!
Pattern options: Mix and match between Version #1 (rounded neckline, back pockets and side zipper with darts) and Version #2 (square neckline and gathered with no closure or back pockets), with a cropped or full length pant leg.
Olivia opted to make the cropped Version #1 with an invisible side zip, darts, and rounded neckline, omitting the back patch pockets. She used our Vivaldi Linen in Bordeaux, which is a perfectly heavyweight linen for pants, jumpsuits, and overalls.
Personalized details: Olivia used contrasting topstitching thread to make these Bibs her own. This thoughtful design choice has a big visual impact and sets the handmade garment apart from ready-to-wear. We love how this detail especially pops against the white stripes on her shirt.
Details we love: We’re digging the roomy, curved patch pockets on the front. Pockets always make us happy! The curved design has a vintage feel, especially with Olivia’s topstitching.
Another detail we love is the adjustable and convertible straps that transition into ties at the back. These can be worn in a number of ways – crossed or uncrossed, tied at the front or back, tied in a bow or not. It’s fun to have options – more ways to make the garment your own!
Thanks Olivia for sharing your Burnside Bibs with us! And if you’re feeling inspired to make your own, you can find the pattern in our shop here!
