Turn of the Century patched overalls found in NC.

I got these overalls as a gift from Evan Myers in SF on my last visit. The patchwork is incredible and you can tell these were heavily worn by the farmer. He found them in an abandoned house in Guilford County out near Camp Herman, a lake and a summer camp retreat that was for Cone Mills employees. They were found under the floorboards in the attic. He put them back together by hand basting them to maintain the shape.  Thanks again Evan!!
