Denim Yanta Overalls

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! It really feels like autumn here in Vancouver these days and I am loving the cool, crisp air and the gorgeous colours on the trees. It is also the perfect weather for all of my Yanta Overalls! I love that I can throw on Yanta over a tee shirt and be fully dressed, just like that.

This pair of classic denim Yantas has been in my mind since the launch of this pattern last spring. Of course I need denim overalls! Yanta is usually finished with buttons, but there is something so alluring about the traditional overalls closure.

I made this pair of Yanta Overalls out of vintage-wash denim from Blackbird Fabrics. It has a bit of a green undertone which I just LOVE. It sewed up beautifully and I look forward to seeing how it ages. There is nothing more satisfying than a well-worn denim garment, right?

I opted to do extra topstitching on these Yantas to make them really stand out. The gold topstitching thread pairs well with the hardware, too! I am not 100% sure I like the effect on the upper back, since it looks a little off-center. Oh well, I don’t have to look at it!

We have another post coming your way tomorrow that shows how we installed this overalls hardware. We only used the one-piece hardware so it may be a good resource for those of you with limited hardware supplies.

I love my denim Yantas! They feel very modern while still being an obvious nod to classic working overalls. I am excited to break them in and see where they are at in a year or so!

Thanks for stopping by to see my Yantas!

  1. Oh my goodness, these are gorgeous! Like you said, modern and classic at the same time! I didn’t think overalls were for me, but this pair might change my mind. Awesome job! I LOVE them!

  2. Those are so cute! I love the patch pockets on the front. These would also be so cute in a railroad stripe denim. Possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing!
