Draw a rectangle that is smaller than the pattern. Apply no fill and no stroke and send it to the back. Then make the pattern brush.

fyliy,

 

One way to cheat is to:

 

1) Create a straight path with a length equalling, or at wee bit above, that of the pattern tile,

2) Move copies by a distance that equals the length of the pattern tile minus the desired overlay,

3) Apply the brush to the set of paths.

 

You can Group the paths or turn them into a Compund Path before or after 3).

the first is without grouping, the second is with compund path
it doesn't really fix this, just making it through once

fyliy,

 

Just to make sure: you made the paths with the desired amount of overlap?

 

Another way is to drag the Pattern Brush out upon the workspace and strip it down to the actual artwork, then move copies of it by the desired distance to get the overlap.
