Burnside Bibs by Sew House Seven | Sew Along Tutorial from Sewing Therapy

Hello and thanks for being here. I’m Sara, here to sew along with you, this time the Burnside Bibs by Sew House Seven. Before this pattern, I had never considered wearing or making overalls, but this pattern completely changed my mind. The Burnside Bibs are not your traditional overalls as hold style and comfort in perfect tension, producing a final look that is feminine and modern. By now you may know my style and could have guessed that I made Version #2 that is easier to wear and sew as it has no zipper. I appreciate Sew House Seven patterns as they come with very clear instructions, keeping confusion at bay. My favorite feature from this pattern is the straps that become the ties, which can be tied in many creative ways.

I highly suggest you watch the video especially if you are a beginner or have things that you don’t quite understand with the written instruction
