From Helen's Closet:

The Ruby Overalls are fun to wear and quick to sew! Ruby features an elasticated back that creates shaping at the waist while still being comfortable to sit and move around in. Two lengths are provided so you can make cropped pant Ruby Overalls or summer shorts! Ruby includes the option for overalls hardware buckles or you can simply sew the straps into the bib and step in and out. Anchored inseam pockets make Ruby both functional and fashionable. This pattern works well in many different types of fabric, from flowy rayon challis to structured denim. Make your dream overalls with Ruby!

Recommended Fabrics: Light to medium weight fabrics with no stretch. Linen, cotton (chambray, lawn, quilting cotton, flannel), denim, hemp, canvas, rayon/viscose, and Tencel will work well. Stiffer fabrics will have more structure and drapier fabrics will have more fluid movement. We recommend fabrics with a maximum weight of 10 oz (340 gsm) due to the elastic in the back waist.

Sizes: 0-34 (up to a 60″ chest and 62″ hip)
