Pablo artist overalls
Pablo the artist overall/apron combo
Exceptionally, Pablo is only available in range 1. Please read this article to learn why this pattern stops at size 46.
Meet Pablo, an overall/apron combo with a unique cut and style that has been designed to wrap around your hips and waist. Inspired by the painting, “ Les demoiselles d’Avignon ” by Pablo Picasso, this garment that mixes a few styles will find a place in your wardrobe as an artists’ smock that will protect you while you are creating, or paired with your favorite clogs to help you live your best bohemian summer. Pablo has two front darts and four back darts for extra shaping.
I started working on this pattern more than 3 years ago for my personal wardrobe. I wanted a garment I could throw on my swimsuit when I was doing some natural dyeing. An apron ? Yes… but something that could cover my body enough so I would feel ok if someone came. A pair of overalls ? Yes… but easy to put on and off and a quick sew with no more material than thread and fabric. An overall/apron combo ? Hell yeah !
It was not meant to be a commercial pattern. I made 2 or 3 toiles and a final version in an old linen sheet but liked it so much that I started wearing it outside. I wore it several times during the summer 2020 and received some compliments each time and was asked the famous "where did you buy it ?". Same thing the following summer. After a while, I thought it was time for Pablo to cover other bodies than mine.
- Fabric: Light to medium-weight warp and weft fabric, such as linen or ramie. Avoid fabric that is too fluid like viscose or fabric too stiff and rigid like denim Pablo was designed with linen or cotton/linen bend in mind. Careful: the wrong side of the fabric will be visible at the bib.
- The protoypes are made from antique linen bed sheets naturally dyed and patch with sashiko style embroidery or made from 100% organic cotton tea towel fabric.
