McCall's 7547- Corduroy Overalls

I make a list of items I want to make each season and corduroy overalls were one of those items. Well, here it is almost the end of February and I just finished my overalls.

 My fabric is this amazing corduroy, Mood Fabrics’ stretch corduroy and it was so wonderful to cut, sew and wear. It also comes in two other colors which are very rich in color. My pattern of choice was McCall’s 7547.

For the front pocket changes, I used another pants pattern for the pocket changes. Now for the side snaps and the changes. To help with this blog post, I have a Instagram Highlight saved with a video tutorial of my changes. Go to girlsinthegarden profile and the highlight is McCall’s 7547.

  • I needed to have openings on each side for the snaps
  • The openings needed a facing for the front
  • A double layer of fabric added to the back for the snaps
  • I added these as facings
  • The side seams were stitched to just above the bottom of the pocket and I added a bar tack at the top of this side seam
  • The waistband was cut in two pieces, one for the front and one for the back, adding length for the facings and seam allowances.
  • Two snaps were added to the side seams and one at the waistband.

This fabric was easy to sew and topstitch. I did use a press cloth to protect the corduroy and the nap.

My only other change was to narrow the legs just a bit and then I did go back and forth on long length or crop length. I ended up going for the long length, my unofficial Instagram poll was for the long length. I do need to try and work on the bib a bit, it sticks out from the body. The width of the bib is a bit too wide, I will try to narrow it for my next pair. You can see it in this photo:

Take a look at this fabric for any type of garment….. pants, overalls, jackets, skirts, this corduroy is so good. Happy sewing and happy planning!

Disclosure - The fabric for this post was provided by Mood Fabrics in exchange for a blog post on
 Mood Sewciety.  The opinions about the fabric are all mine


  1. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.

    I lost a lot of money in a month ago when I saw the opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency; and this is why I suggest to everyone out there to seek more knowledge before investing in cryptocurrency as there are people out there who seize this opportunity to defraud victims of their hard-earned money through cryptocurrency investment. I was lucky enough to do my research and found out I have been coined $892,000 worth of Bitcoin & Ethereum after falling victim. It was not long after I discovered the services of hackersteve911, who took some information from me to investigate and recover all the money that I lost in this scam. I’m truly grateful for the services of hackersteve911, the best cryptocurrency recovery out there.
