Buy the Otis Overalls sewing pattern from Sew Liberated. A playful twist on overalls, Otis brings a bit of whimsy to the everyday. Featuring a statement lantern cuff and an easy wearing gathered back, the Otis Overalls have a modern utility vibe.

Otis’ bold silhouette is formed with shaped seams on the lower leg and an ankle-length hem. The fit is relaxed, with a dropped crotch, roomy and plentiful pockets, and a drawstring back waist closure for pull-on comfort and ease.

Versatile and appropriate to any season, the Otis Overalls will become a key part of your sustainable wardrobe. Perfect for gardening, afternoons out, running errands, and anything else you might get up to, they pair well with the Stasia Tee, a bodysuit, or a cropped boxy tee like the Strata Top.

Suggested fabrics: The Otis Overalls are designed for mid-weight woven fabrics, such as linen (4-6 oz/160-200 gsm), gabardine, lightweight twill or denim, or light canvas. Softer bottom-weight options like Essex linen, silk noil, Mora slub linen, and Brussels washer linen will create a softer leg line and a warm weather feel. You want enough body and stability to support the shape of the pant leg, and enough durability for the waist tie.

You may choose to use a different, lighter weight fabric for your facings and side pockets. If your main fabric is quite sturdy, using a lighter fabric like chambray or cotton shirting will allow the waist tie to gather more easily. Be careful to choose a fabric that matches or coordinates, since it will be visible along the gathered edge and on the bib facing when you move and bend.

Fabric requirements: 45″ (1.2 m) wide fabric: 3.75 – 4 yd (3.4 – 3.7 m) // 54″ (1.4 m) wide fabric: 3 – 3.3 yd (2.75 – 3 m).

Sizing: US 0 – 34 (approx. UK 6/8 – 32/34, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

This pattern is drafted for a height of 5’5″ (165 cm). The waist seam sits at the high hip, and the hem falls just above the ankle bone.

Since the waist is shaped with a drawstring, you can use your hip measurement as the deciding factor if your waist and hip fall into different sizes.

Notions: Wonder Tape, 1/4″ (6 mm) wide; lightweight fusible interfacing.

PDF pattern includes: Step-by-step instructions; US letter/A4 print-at-home pattern (35 pages for sizes 0-24, 42 pages for sizes 22-34); A0 copy shop pattern (2 sheets for sizes 0-24, 2 sheets for sizes 22-34) // Layers: Yes // Projector file: No.
