    Inspired by vintage work-wear, Jenny is a modern interpretation of classic overalls and wide leg trousers with an ultra-high rise, sleek, functional details and a comfortable all-day-long fit.

    Make a more sophisticated version of dungarees with our well-proportioned bib and optional utility pocket, or omit the bib entirely and make a pair of wide-legged cropped pants, full-length pants or shorts. Optional details abound; mix and match the curved slash front pockets, faux fly front, single or double zipper waistband and rounded back patch pockets. To personalize even further, go all out with high contrast topstitching, or take a more minimalist approach for a clean, elegant finish.

    Don't forget to download our free pattern expansion to make a button front Jenny with utility pockets!

    Jenny is available as an instant gratification PDF (with copyshop and print at home files), or as a beautifully printed pattern. See our guide to printing & assembling PDF files here. Both versions feature our meticulously written and easy to follow instructions, designed to give everyone beautiful results regardless of skill level.

Great design, challenging

I love the final product...the directions were a little hard to understand but all in all, if you’re an experienced sewer you’ll do fine. One of the waistbands is labeled wrong so I did end up using a little more fabric than anticipated. Choose your fabric wisely...I wish I had chosen a heavier weight so they lay smoother. I’m probably going to make the wide leg pants for fall in a thicker material.

The Jenny

Because I am overzealous with pattern purchase I am just getting started on the Jenny. It’s super cute and can’t wait to finish so I can wear it

Easy and nearly perfect

This pattern was excellent. It only had one flaw, which is that I made it for a friend and the straps weren't long enough for her.

Perfect, fun and easy

I love this pattern. Shipped quickly, and it's so easy to make! The hardest part is the lapped zipper, and that practically put itself together. Made the short dungaree version and plan on making every other variant as soon as I can. Looks great on pear shapes.

Great pattern. True to size. The instructions are well written and the blog and instagram posts of other sewists renditions are inspirational. I've made 2 pair (some pants and the overall) I did have to shorten the front crotch length, as I am very short waisted. It was an easy alterations and I love the pants! The accompanying hardware kits are awesome and make sourcing the notions a breeze. I highly recommend purchasing the hardware kit. Great price and quality.
I will be recommending this pattern to my university students at USU when we get to our jeans unit. Great Work!

Hi Alex. I am thrilled to hear you liked this pattern and will be recommending it to your students; such high praise! Thank you!
