Sew House Seven Burnside Bibs BUST 31" - 47" (Intermediate)

(4 reviews) Write a Review


  The Burnside Bibs are not your traditional work overalls. Yes they are comfortable and easy to wear, yet they are much more stylish and feminine than traditional versions. The straps that transition to narrower ties offer many options for how they can be tied. so many sewing patterns, we as sewists are able to influence how casual or dressed up they become simply by fabric choice. Choose a fabric with some drape such as Tencel and pair them with a silk blouse and some heels for a dressed up look. Use a more traditional denim or linen and wear them with a tee shirt, sneakers or clogs and take a more casual approach.

Options & 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, however, the ties still form a small amount of gathers at the back waist.

Version #2 is a looser 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 legs are somewhat wide and can be made full length or cropped.

This is an intermediate level pattern.  Sizes 00 - 20 which equates to Bust 31" to 47"

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

    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

    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.
