Yanta Dungarees Overall Kit

The Yantas are laid-back, artist-style overalls with a comfortable fit through the waist, hips, and legs, with a choice of full length or a summery shorts length.

The classic features like the v-shaped back and a pointed chest pocket, along with front and back patch pockets make the Yantas practical, modern and super fun to sew! Secure the straps with traditional button holes and buttons, or opt for a more casual look with longer straps tied in an over sized knot. For a more fitted look over the hips and waist, customise the fit and add in an invisible side zipper for ease of wear.

We have chosen 3 gorgeous shades of 100% Linen fabric for this kit. They are easy to work with, press well and are super comfortable and cool to wear. Choose between Classic Navy, Lagoon Teal or Pacific Blue.

This kit is available in sizes US 0-30; waist 24" - 48" and hips 33" - 58".
