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!
