——————————————————————

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!

Handmade Wardrobe // Flint Bib Overalls

I’m so so excited to finally share this Flint trouser hack with you! When Meg first proposed this idea to me, I jut about jumped through the roof. THIS is my type of trousers. I live for overalls and jumpsuits, and this is no exception. they came out so perfect. I made these back in September, and wore them out to a local festival and again later for a night out, and they were so comfy (and got a few compliments!).

I made mine from a rust-y brown twill from fabric.com. And I chose to do the tie closure instead of the button closure, because I love little details like that. But the bib works for either option. You can get the pattern add-on and view all the instructions for the hack over on Design Diary here, as well as a few ideas to change it up and make it your own.

P.S - my top is a Megan Nielsen Patterns Rowan bodysuit in a striped jersey from Califabrics. Shoes are Swedish Hasbeens.
