This might come as a shock to you, but the entire Spring Collection actually started off as a Collection just for Ben. And these overalls were one of the very first items I created almost 2 months ago!

Needless to say, somewhere in the middle of the process I got an itch to make some girl items…and just like that it turned into a collection for all of my kids.  That’s the way the cookie crumbles – lol.
 Some of the clothing initially created for Ben ended up getting pushed aside to make room for the new girl items. But these baby overalls…

Well, they had a special place in my heart. I think it had something to do with the photo shoot. Ben was finding his feet for the first time…

They are actually a play on a pair of overalls I made for Madeline in one of the previous collections.  Add some boy fabric and gingham, as well as pattern pieces for sizes 6 – 12 months, and we are in business!  



To make these overalls, first you will need to print out the pattern pieces found HERE.  Once you have your pattern pieces cut out, we can start sewing…

Starting with the pockets…obviously, the pockets are completely optional.

The button placket on the front is completely optional.  I found a tutorial by Made by Rae almost a year ago, and have been faithful to it ever since.  To make one for your overalls, click HERE.





Then simply add the buttons and buttonholes on your straps and bib… Tute12

And there you have it, a pair of perfectly cute overalls to put on the littlest one in your life! You can easily add a little elastic if you want to cinch in the sides, but I opted not too since they were being made for the boy.

Gah, I am still crazy about that face!
