  • Dark Lilac Cotton Twill - This twill is the perfect chino twill. Soft, flexible, medium weight, and 100% cotton, it's an ideal fabric for any pair of overalls. What sold me on this fabric in particular is the color. Dark and slightly muted, this lilac color reminds me of the twilight sky and oil slicked water. It is completely unexpected for a pair of overalls, and yet I can't out of my mind how lovely it will look as a finished pair of overalls. A simply gorgeous choice!
  • Pink Mountains Cotton Duck - There's a temptation to use only solid colors when it comes to pants and overalls, but what fun is that? The whole point of sewing your own clothes is that you can embrace color and pattern in a way that ready to wear doesn't allow. And this fabric is a perfect example of that.  The medium weight cotton duck is an ideal fabric for the overalls, and, with a pink, orange, white and black pattern of mountains and clouds, this pattern is fun and geometric. The pattern is large scale, meaning it will match the proportions of the pattern well, and it will bring completely unexpected joy to your wardrobe!
  • Cream Speckled Essex Linen Cotton - When I think of overalls, I often think of painters and artists, brush in their teeth, stepping back to look at their work. In this image, they are always wearing white overalls, covered with splatters of paint. If you're not a painter, this cream speckled cotton linen will give you the same look, minus the cleanup. Slub thread with multi-colored speckles give the fabric texture and color, and the medium weight and softly crisp drape will match the pattern perfectly. Live your artist dreams with this lovely pair of overalls!
