Similar to the palazzo pants sewn on The Great British Sewing Bee series 6 episode 2.

Inspired by vintage work-wear Jenny is a modern interpretation of classic overalls / dungarees 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.
