Which made me think, “I could make those.”
Guess what? It’s not even that hard.
I just traced a pair of overalls Abby already had onto a sweater.
I cut out the front and the back and got two pieces that looked like this.
I sewed the sides and the inseam shut (I was going to do buttons for easier diaper changes, but then I got lazy)
I cut out straps and pockets out of the sleeves and sewed them into place, then I added buttons to the front and finished all of the exposed edges with zigzag stitches.
(If you want to do a size larger than 18 months you will probably need to use a sweater dress instead of a normal sweater for the extra length.)
I love the way they turned out!
Plus they were free. Beat that, Baby Gap.
