Lovely! It looks perfect and adorable. You're inspiring me to get started on the 40s version of this from evadress. I have the pattern and fabric just sitting there waiting for me. So, will you be gardening in this?

Well done. An impressive effort. But please, what does "walk your seams" mean?

These are great, you look just like a Land Girl or a Lumber Jill! :) I've often coveted EvaDress's patterns so it's nice to see more more sewn up.

Very cute pattern, and one that I wasn't aware of until your review. I may need to check these out! Congratulations on your first review, by the way. :o)

These are very unique and cute. I had never heard of that pattern company before. They have some really cute patterns.

Thanks for all the comments! "Walk your seams" means first, you get a leash... j/k. It means making sure the seams on your pattern pieces that will be sewn together are the same length. You can do this by... this is so hard to explain in writing... taking two of your pattern pieces, lay one seam over the other, start at one end, and (I use the point of a pin) "walk" along the length of the seam, checking to see if notches and lengths match. Does that make any sense? This link kind of explains it, as well: http://www.fashion-incubator.com/archive/how_to_walk_a_pattern_collar/

Very nice end result, and you're right they do look rather comfy.

I just bought a similar pair from Anthropology. A few of pointers from the bought pair. 1: They have faux buttons with a zip hidden below (makes getting in/out easier). 2: the fabric looks like denim but has he drape of rayon & that is quite flattering on the legs. 3: the straps form a halter neck which is easy to get into/out off for bathroom breaks!
