MarytBeth, I think your overalls look very nice, and not "hayseed" at all. Of course, my last review was for a western style shirt:) Wear your overalls with pride!

MaryBeth, they are adorable and you look cute and ready for summer. I love the color and fit. Enjoy wearing them, just be sure you have other type garments in your closet too. ;-)

Personally, I think they look cute on you. I love overalls becaue they are sooooo comfortable, but I only wear them when I am in my "house frau doing errands around town" mode. Or if I'm gardening at home.

MB, These definitely do NOT look hayseed. Trinnie & Suzanne do not know EVERYTHING! The overalls are very fashionable and feminine. But since you *did* ask , the only change I would make would be to shorten the back "bib" so that it doesn't blouse, as you mentioned, and add the dreaded "bulk." But the colors are just wonderful on you -- I have that same knit and wish I had paid more attention to Ressy's twill. Great review!

Aaack ... the dreaded double edited comment. Hopefully this will fix that.

I think they look very cute on you. Don't worry I won't telephone Trinny & Susannah! I once had to make DS some white overalls for a costume in one night. They were a breeze with the Kwik-Sew pattern I used. Lots of little pieces, but easy nonetheless.

MaryBeth, in the town I live in, these would be considered not hayseed, but haute couture! I think it is important to remember context. You probably aren't going to wear these on a job interview or a sales call. They are fun and casual. Personally, I think we should all be encouraged to sew a "fun" thing once in a while--for me, its my dorky campshirts, not the fashionable tropical rayon kind, but the every-pattern-piece-is-a-different-Engelbreit-print kind. The kind my kids beg me not to wear to their school functions. Nice review, enjoy your overalls.

Hi MaryBeth, I like to make a suggestion about your bib overall .First of all you look very sunny in those colors and the bib overall is fine and suits you, but I would suggest if you want to make another one, do draft the upper part where the shoulder straps are sewn to, a few inches wider so your back view does look more balanced with the upper back body. I am more plus sized than you so I know the tricks to look more slender (well in my opinion slender) because my upper body is much smaller than the lower part like hips and butt. If the upper part is wider the shoulder straps are also wider spread, which also helps. I hope that I have not offended you in any way because that is not my intention. Enjoy your bib overall and you do not look like a Hilly Billy at all (I think that is another word for hayseed I suppose).

Mary Beth, I think you look so cute in that outfit! I love your haircut, too. els, that idea for the back sounds like it would work even for a small size as well. And MB, it's deffinately not hayseed or hillbilly!

Great ideas, ladies! I'm thinking that I didn't plan for a knit top being tucked in and at least one more inch of ease would be good for this lightweight fabric, too. And the belt should be a bit higher, maybe, so the high hip is not so accented.

That is one cute outfit! Definitely wear it in public. Overalls can be just as stylish as anything else, it's all a matter of attitude:). The color is wonderfull too.

I have the same fabric! Soo cute on you! PMB really drafts those pants perfect on you. I love overalls - you have inspired me to try some

MaryBeth another good project with PMB and KS all together. I love the overalls and I think they look cute on you. I don't know who Trinnie and Suzanne are, but I think you can wear them whereever you want. Great save on this project.

They are adorable. Very hayseed, but isn't that the idea of overalls? Wear them and enjoy them!
