Closet Core Patterns - Jenny Overalls, Shorts & Trousers

  • Make a Selection

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

Make a more sophisticated version of dungarees with the 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 personalise even further, go all out with high contrast topstitching, or take a more minimalist approach for a clean, elegant finish.

Level: intermediate-advanced

Sizes: 0-20 (US) / 4-24 (UK)
