——————————————————————

My second pair of Flint bibs, and I’m obsessed (see first pair here). And also my contribution to the #sewbibs challenge put together by Heidi, Teri, Meg, and Jessamy!

Unlike my first version, which was made out of a more traditional twill, for this one I chose a really lovely tencel twill from Blackbird Fabrics. It’s so drapey and soft and perfect. And while I love the look of my other stiffer-hand pair as well, this fabric with this pattern is just soooo dreamy. Now if only I remembered to apply interfacing to the waistband, because all I can see in these photos is the seam allowance crease through the center. Doh! But I think I’ll survive, and the overalls will survive, and I’ll wear them over and over and over. And if you want to make a pair yourself, don’t forget that I wrote the tutorial for bib over at Design Diary!

I had a little bit of fabric left over, so I was able to squeeze out this little ruffle top for P, as well. Because, duh, I will always take an opportunity for her to match me, Ha!

pants: Megan Nielsen Patterns flint pants, pink corduroy from Blackbird Fabrics

I’ve been dreaming about wide leg pink corduroy pants since the first moment I laid eyes on this fabric back in the fall. It had to sit in my to-do pile for awhile while other projects took priority, but I’m so happy I finally made it happen! I was originally torn between the Flint pants or Dawn jeans, but ultimately went with Flint because I just can’t get over that tie detail. Granted, this non-stretch corduroy is probably just a teeeeny bit too thick for that tie, maybe better suited for the button waistband option. But it still works and I’m still in love.

I paired it with yet another Rowan bodysuit, which is my ultimate me-made obsession. This is Rowan number 6 for me, and I’m not stopping making more! I added little ruffles to the shoulder seams on this one, and I might add a little how-to on my Instagram stories soon if you’re interested! Follow along with me at @hollydollydarling.
