The Burnside Bibs are a comfortable and easy to wear overall. It has straps that transition to narrower ties offering many options for how they can be tied. You can make them casual or more dressed up depending on your fabric choice.
The pattern has two front bib options – a scooped neck or the traditional straight front. Both bibs work with either version #1 or version #2.
Version #1 is a more fitted back trouser with back waist darts and an invisible side zipper opening, however, the ties still form a small amount of gathers at the back waist.
Version #2 is a looser back trouser that slips on over your hips and does not have a closure to sew. This version is fuller and more gathered in the back. Use your hip measurement to determine your size for version #2.
Both versions also feature a front waistband, curved front patch pockets, optional back pockets, and cross-back straps that transition to narrower ties that thread through back waist belt loops forming back waist gathers. They may be tied in many ways – at the back, front or sides. The legs are wide and can be made full length or cropped.
The paper pattern is a multi-size pattern and includes Size 00 to 20. The pattern comes carefully packaged in an envelope along with a printed booklet with step-by-step sewing instructions.
