How to DIY Tie Strap Overalls

I love my rompers but I've been a little unsure about the overalls trend until I saw this pattern. They're totally adorable and I have a feeling that they're also super comfy, perfect for casual weekend wear. 

How to DIY Tie Strap Overalls

Step 1: Today's inspiration are these overalls from ASOS. The black is super easy to pair with other clothes and will carry you right into Fall/Winter. It's also a little more subtle than a traditional blue denim or the striped fabric used in the pattern's photos (link below). If you're still working on your summer wardrobe, you could start by making a shorts version like this romper from Madewell. 

Step 2: The pattern is BurdaStyle Overalls 07/2016 #109. It's a classic design and I love the rounded shape of the front piece and the tie shoulders. Good news for the tall gals out there, this pattern was made just for us!

Step 3: For the fabric, I'd use a lightweight denim like this 6.5oz Robert Kaufman from Fabric Depot. It would also be great in a black linen. 

Have you tried the overalls trend yet? Are you going to jump on board?
