Introducing Project 4 for the week…Baby Mix n Match Overalls! This is definitely my favourite project so far and I’m soooo happy with how they’ve turned out – too cute!!
Unfortunately they are waaaaayyyy too big for my Little at the moment as he’s only 5 months and I made the 6-9 month size. This was deliberate though…hopefully they’ll be just the right size for when winter starts in a few months.
This is a great value unisex pattern from Flosstyle with loads of different options to mix and match with (funny that). I chose the long leg overalls version with an elasticated back and pockets (useless as they are for a baby – but they look cute!) I love the fact that it had the option for snaps to close the legs and make changing easy. I’ve never made pants with snap closing before but the instructions were really straight forward.
I decided to use the green spotted feature fabric for the pockets, waistband, straps, leg snaps and inside of the bodice pieces and I think it breaks up the navy cargo drill well.
The pattern encourages all the top stitching which means it takes a bit longer to sew than it would otherwise but I think it gives it a really neat professional finish.
Not much more to say about this one except that I’ll probably make another pair once he grows out of these ones. They are just too cute!!
Only one more outfit to finish now – on the home stretch.
