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

Make a more sophisticated version of dungarees with our well-proportioned bib and optional utility pocket, or omit the bib entirely and make a pair of wide-legged cropped pants, full-length pants 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. To personalize even further, go all out with high contrast topstitching, or take a more minimalist approach for a clean, elegant finish.

Great pattern!

Great pattern as usual with closet core! Fit is comfy and flattering (I think!). I am not sure if I completed the zipper part correctly even after checking the step by step on the blog. It seems like I may have used up a little bit too much of seam allowance on that side. A video tutorial on that step may have helped me (it may exists though?). Besides that explanations are super clear and make for a very enjoyable experience when you take your time! I bought the pattern for the overalls version but will probably also make some pants given the nice fit!

Fabulous Pattern

Made for my daughter and she loves them. Even though advanced for my skill level, the instructions are clear and the tutorial for the zipper was so helpful. The fit is really nice and I will be making more.

Just what I was looking for!

I was looking for a pattern for some painted overalls that would have enough coverage to get the pattern across without being overwhelming. This pattern was exactly what I needed! The only hard parts were from my own mistakes because I'm still a beginner but it was still a good fit for my skill level.

Great pattern, comfy fit

The fit is great and the pattern is fairly straightforward. For new sewists, it might be a little challenging to understand everything, however I was able to figure it out through trial and error. I had to grade the pattern to fit once I did a basted fitting. I recommend doing a mock-up with muslin first to check the fit.

La-la-love!

I made these in the long pant version and it was so much fun. I used a light floral fabric and pair them with a tank. Very spring/summer. Received compliments on the completed overalls from people when out and about. I felt...pretty...so thanks closer core.
