Head Over Heels for Overalls
May 8, 2019
The linen obsession continues (will it ever really end, though?). These linen overalls are the newest addition to my closet and I’ve got a lot to say about them.
You already know my linen obsession has been a t h i n g with these previous posts, but I’m continuing to discover the magic of this fabric. When I say magic, I mean the fact that they keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. I have no idea how (hence ‘magic’) but it works! Proof in point: I wore these overalls to San Francisco for my birthday trip not knowing just how fresh it was going to be there, and these overalls kept me warmer than the jumper I was wearing!
Since returning to warmer weather in Los Angeles, I have probably worn these about three times (in three weeks) and have had to actively force these into a wider rotation for fear that people think I own nothing else (although, would that be so bad?). Let’s dig into the make of these a little more shall we?
Joanna, creator of Pyne & Smith, is a linen goddess. She cared so much about creating a great product that she tweaked these overalls for over a year! Having just started sewing classes of my own, I can absolutely understand just how painful this process must’ve been. As a consumer, I’m incredibly grateful for the dedication to perfection and quality.
The straps have two buttons on each side for adjusting tightness (mine is currently buttoned at the tightest setting). There are also buttons along the hips for getting into them easily. It has pockets, so, that alone is a major selling point.
The pants are hemmed to my ankles, but I actually prefer wearing them a little cuffed.

The overalls are quite a thin linen (as opposed to this dress I wear) which I think is a beautiful weight. They fit quite loose all over which makes them very forgiving and ridiculously comfortable for any type of activity. I’m all about comfort nowadays!
Is it strange that I’ve already had thoughts of me wearing these whilst preggo with (hopefully) the cutest little bump? This is probably because one of my favourite pictures of my mum when she was pregnant is her in a pair of overalls! #preggogoals.
The fact that I’ve been able to envision these for my future pregnancy means they’ll definitely get plenty of wear through all my different body phases and that brings me a lot of joy! Remember, always strive for at least 30 (hopefully plenty more) wears with each item of clothing you get!
I cannot praise Joanna enough for making an exceptional quality pair of linen overalls. If you’ve been in search for a comfy pair that aren’t denim, head on over to Pyne & Smith and get yourself these before she’s sold out!
