Giant checks + vintage overalls + enthusiastic 2 year old = happy sewist.
The overalls are from a 1975 Simplicity pattern. The legs are fairly wide, but not very bell-shaped. The bodice has a good-sized facing, which is always nice. I've been tracing some Burdas the last few nights, rolling my eyes at the teeny tiny facings, wondering if I will even use them.
Molly loves them, although at her age I think she'd be excited about anything I made her. Every two year old should have "romper" in her vocabulary, no?
I'd like to make the shortall version this summer. And wouldn't it look cute with a pointy collared blouse underneath?
