The comfort of dressing from head to toe in a single garment. The jumpsuit or coverall with invisible zipper and bow.

The overalls is one of the many garments that come from a labor context, symbol of the working class and was used to protect the workers' clothes from possible stains, dirt or tears as it covered from head to toe. It also gave an extra comfort in the movements of the workers. Thanks to the fact that someone saw in the overalls a use that could be extended beyond the work environment, it has been incorporated into many of our closets and has survived decades of changes in fashion and trends. 

Mi versión del overol

And since I love basic garments, I couldn't help but make my version of the jumpsuit. What are the characteristics of this pattern?

  • It has a drop sleeve with a hem attached with a zig zag stitching detail.
  • It has a belt under the chest to enhance this area of the body that you can tie at the front or back.
  • You can sew it without a belt.
  • Invisible front zipper closure.
  • Buttoned cuffs at the bottom of the pants.
  • Invisible pockets in the side seams.
  • The pattern has 6 sizes (36-46).
  • In the picture Marta is wearing size 38 and is 1.69 cm tall.

What you will learn by sewing this model:

  • You will sew a front zipper.
  • You will sew a bow.
  • You will learn how to make button loops with the same fabric used to sew the jumpsuit.
  • Cuffs at the bottom of the pants.
  • To sew invisible pockets in the side seams.
