The dimensions of the finished overalls in inches:


The pattern is based on an original pattern from the 1940s and requires good sewing skills. The trousers are high-waisted, i.e. cut to the waist, as was typical for the time. The pattern includes side buttons for fastening. A really great pattern for a vintage-inspired wardrobe.

The pattern is for private use only.
