  • Intermediate level pattern
  • This pattern is US size 00 - 20

Pattern Features

The Burnside Bibs have two front bib options - a scooped neck or the traditional straight front. Both bibs work with either version #1 or version #2.

  • Version #1 is a more fitted back pant with back waist darts and an invisible side zipper opening with less gathering in the back.
  • Version #2 is a loose back pant that slips on over your hips and does not have a closure to sew. This version is fuller and more gathered in the back. Use your hip measurement to determine your size for version #2.
  • Both versions also feature a front waistband, curved front patch pockets, optional back pockets, and cross-back straps that transition to narrower ties that thread through back waist belt loops forming back waist gathers. They may be tied in many ways - at the back, front or sides. The wide leg can be made full length or cropped.

Fabrics: For a dressed up version choose light to mid-weight woven fabrics such as Tencel, linen, wool gabardine, or sandwashed silk.

  • For a casual version choose denim, canvas, or cotton twill.
  • 12" invisible zipper required for version #1
  • Lightweight fusible interfacing

Sundries: 7-9"/18-23 cm invisible zipper (Version #1 only), thread, lightweight fusible interfacing (see Fabric Requirements for amounts)

Tools: Fabric scissors, iron & ironing board, straight pins, tailors chalk, hand sewing needle

    This pattern was very clear and easy to follow, I love the dungarees I’ve made, looks just like the pattern images.

    Will definitely make the dungarees again but full length version.

    Great pattern for dungarees

    I altered the pattern to make it a dungaree dress rather than pants, very successfully. I love that it is so flexible with sizing and the draw ties at the back make it a guaranteed fit. Also having deep pockets is a good idea. The pattern was super easy to follow.

    Fabulous Pattern

    Posted by Beth on 27th Apr 2018

    I was very taken with the pattern when I first saw it and as I was looking for some funky, functional and comfortable gardening togs...this pattern ticked all the boxes. I found the pattern instructions easy to read and digest. It also helped that Fabric Godmother had some lovely soft denim which I have used to make up the Burnside Bib.
