I've always loved the comfort of overalls so when I saw a pattern for knit overalls, I knew I had to make a pair. I used Simplicity S8855. It is a current pattern and available. I wasn't sure about the fit so I bought a precut roll of french terry from Walmart to make my muslin. The fit is perfect and now I'm on the hunt for some nice knit. The only pattern modification I made was to deepen the pockets (to hold my phone) and rather than have the pockets hanging loose, I sewed them to the front of the pants.
