Wow, these are amazing with so many excellent details and a good fit. How great you were able to find the right fabric, too. My husband has been hinting for me to make him coveralls. He think it'd be easy to draft a pattern. hahahaha

Wonderful!! Such a fantastic job!! love the little red bar tacks..and all the other improvements. Did you tell him he is not allowed to put holes in them? A suitable reward for fixing the machine..

Those are amazing! Great job! (And I agree - you kind of needed to make them, after he fixed your machine.)

Your DH is priceless and you deserve huge hugs for making such a professional looking pair of overalls, your attention to detail (as always) is amazing.

Wow! I bet DH is happy with his custom overalls. Wonderful drafting and sewing on your part. There is a lot of work in these overalls! Nice job.

booran said...
You have done a great job - I think hanging on to the pattern is a good idea - because I am sure that your DH will back for a another pair at some stage !!!!!

Wow! Everything about these is Fan.Tas.Tic! Lining fabric made me smile, too. Beautiful work as always, Treefrog.

I think they're great! You should just go a head and make him another pair now while you still have it fresh in your mind...... Nora :)

Congratulations on this project! What a tremendous amount of work you put into making your hubby his new overalls. I'm sure my husband would love to have the same ones!

What a lucky DH! Not only does he get custom-made overalls, but the details & workmanship are exquisite - VERY well done.

tigergirl said...
You've done such a great job with these! Now my other half wants me to make him some custom overalls.

Well done you. They are great. And well done him for sorting your machine.

What a fantastic job you did! Love the the custom improvements. I am very impressed that your DH is working on restoring the High Country huts! I used to hike up there a lot when I was younger and I always lived them. Tell him thanks from me :)

sew4real said...
Wow, you did a wonderful job! Look like he will get a lot of use out of them, you may be making a second pair sooner than you think.

You make me want some just so I can study the craftsmanship! What a wonderful project and a great review. You and your hubby are a good team.

Wow! You did a fabulous job! What a lot of love and detail went into making these, it's so impressive. My hubby would absolutely love it if I did the same for him. I have never thought of copying his overalls. I love that lining fabric with the hearts and X's, what a hoot. A reminder everyday he wears those of how much you love him, so cute. Love, love, love these! :))

I wouldn't normally click on a review of men's overalls, but I wanted to check out the work in the men's contest. WOW. WOW. These are, indeed, a labor of love. Such amazing detail. Such beautiful and thoughtful workmanship. I agree with the others - make him another pair now. Perhaps with TWO pair, you will get more like 10 years before you have to make another! Very impressive!

Well done! Thanks for all of the details-you really dissected the RTW and improved it!
