History of my overalls- no.1 Big Ben

March 24, 2016

In 2001 I discovered the comfort, beauty and easiness of overalls ! IMGoveralls_0004 here standing in Bernal Heights in summer 2001, in my “new” thrift Big Ben overalls. They were really dark blue.

On the legs you see they start to become thin ! and then I got in touch with Michelle Hoffee and got them turned into wearable art with old flour sacks. It is not a problem they are being used, on the contrary. They become overall art and tell a story.
