Willow Overalls
Pipe Dream Patterns

$20.00 each

The Willow Overalls Pattern by Pipe Dream Patterns come in both wide and chino leg versions, designed to suit your style and the turning seasons.  They can be made in a range of materials from heavy through light weight fabrics, and can slot in your wardrobe as a comfy home basic, or more regular day wear.

This pattern is made with simple techniques and is beginner friendly.  You can expect generous ease on the hips and thighs, and crotch depth is noted in the instructions with clear lines on pattern so you know where to make alterations if the fit needs tweaking for you.  However, as these overalls are designed to be pulled on, with no hip or waist fastenings to secure them, you will want to cut the hip size closest (but not smaller) than your hip measurement for ease getting them on.

The pattern envelope contains a full size printed pattern and printed instructions.  Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements.  Please read about how to choose between “Beatha” size/shape and “Saorsa” size/shape below in the “Basic Information” tab.

Pipe Dream Patterns is a small indie designer based in Scotland.

Make Ideas

A washed cotton twill is the perfect transition fabric for these overalls, or choose a heavier printed canvas to make a statement garment.  A lighter-weight linen blend will give the wide-leg version much more drape.

Design Information & Sizing

Pipe Dream Patterns designs with two different shapes. Please choose your pattern based on both measurements and body shape. The pattern gallery images do not show the cut pattern piece measurements, which are listed below, but rather the finished garment measurements, so that ultimate customization is possible.

Their "Beatha" line (Scottish Gaelic for "being") is designed for an hourglass shape, C cup, and 5'5" in height. Beatha covers bust measurements 32" – 46", and hip measurements 35"-48".

Their "Saorsa" line is designed for a pear shape, DD cup, and 5'10" in height. Saorsa covers bust measurements 44" – 58", and hip measurements 52" – 66".

What else do I need?

Fabric recommendations: denim (all weights up to "bull" denim), corduroy, linen and linen blends, twill, gaberdine, canvas, cotton duck, and other trouser fabrics.

*See gallery image for fabric amount requirements based on size/shape choice. Please note that as this is a Scottish company, their fabric requirements are in METERS. 1m = 1.094yd. If you order the recommended amount here in YARDS, you will end up with a slight amount more than what the pattern calls for. Additional fabric may be required to match stripes, plaids, or using border prints, or when lengthening your pattern pieces.
