So this is my first post (and the first thing I've sewn since middle school!)

I bought a regular pair of long pant khaki overalls at Goodwill for probably $2 with the sole purpose of making this. Of course I didn't finish it until at least 6 mo. later...  Tongue



Right Side (little uneven, oops! and no pic of the left because it's boring, haha)

Inside (made with old pj pants, I love the stripes!)

Action Shot! (my grad gown still hanging over a year later...)

The arm strap was too short with one overall thingy so I cut the other one and added it but I think it looks really sloppy and I'm too lazy to rip the seams and redo it right now.

And yes, the front pockets need to be ironed.  Tongue

I didn't add a pocket to the inside because I didn't have any zippers handy and I really wanted to get this thing done.

Criticism and critiques welcome!   Grin

Great job! I've had the idea for one of these floating around in my head for awhile too. Hopefully I'll pick up a pair of overalls one of these days.

I love the lining fabric too, it works great with the khaki color.
