Berlin has seen them! Green overalls!

Dominik's overalls framed by Alvar Aalto's building
(Hansaviertel, Berlin)


Made for the little guy out of my old jeans (see below). No pattern, I just cut it after some other waist pants and guessed the rest, a bib and braces. So the bib is from the saddle of the original jeans, I ripped off the pockets and let the blue cloth that appeared beneath make its effect. The rest of the blue "pocket" I reused as a front pocket, so that he has a place to keep his chewing gum, piece of string, ...



Then the back pockets went again in its place on the new jeans. They fit there, they even look like they were always there. The hardest part was ripping off the pockets whereas sewing the whole thing together was the easiest, this old piece of wreck wasn't anything to worry about, if it had turned out bad I wouldn't be losing anything. To know that ahead works well for what you make.

Those are so cute and Dominik is soooo cute. What a great way to reuse old jean...and to think that people pay hundreds of dollars to buy jeans that look worn! He is a very stylin' little man.

Great trousers, well done! I had big plans for sewing this spring, but didn't have the time...yet!
