Stitches – I love corduroy

Yes, I made more overalls.  I love overalls and I love corduroy. I have a feeling my little man can expect to wear a lot of overalls.

These fit great. I adjusted the length and added some ribbing. As with the last ones, they’re fully lined.

Can you tell what kind of rookie mistake I made?

Yes.. I managed to cut the cord the wrong way. As in the stripes now across instead of down. Oh well... Barely noticeable, right?

This time I figured I’d jazz up the outside a bit by using the lining fabric on the outside of the pockets.


Overalls are such good pants to wear for playing. Yep, it’s official, we love overalls.

    So Totally Awesome and Cute !!! Personally I never liked them for my own son nor daughter… always such a hassle when changing nappies or toilet time.

    • Thank you! I considered making a snap crotch for it, but I find them easy enough to deal with that I couldn’t be bothered. If he was younger I definitely would have.

    Love those ! I wish my guy would fit into overalls they never make the torso long enough. If i buy bigger the leg length is super Long. I love the idea of pockets on the outside looks cute.

    • It’s tricky getting sizing right. I had to amend the pattern a bit to fit my man, he’s not very tall for his age so this is a size 12 months minus 4 cm on the legs and with the adjustable buckles I was able to shorten the top as much as I needed to get a good fit. A lot of the patterns I’ve come across just don’t fit his body type at all.

      He discovered the pockets a little while ago and loves carrying rocks around in them. 🙂

  4. Oh, I LOVE overalls on a little man. I’m crocheting some for my little guy at the moment ( because I’m HOPELESS at sewing!!! )

    • I wish I could crochet anything that wasn’t a hat or a scarf! I just don’t know how to read those patterns. Sewing is a learning by doing thing for me, but I’m a bit obsessed with it. I’ll lie in bed at night trying to figure out how to make something and I won’t get it out of my head until I do. I just wish I had more time to do it.
