A friend wanted a pair of overalls for her doll (we both have the same doll, so mine was used as the model for designing this pattern because we live a few states apart). I wanted them to be as authentic as they could be for a 7 1/2" doll…..working pockets, side plackets, teeny overall buckles. The pattern ended up having 12 separate pieces. My husband had to fashion the tiny little buckles because there were just none available this small at any stores. I made the little t-shirt, too, which is actually more like a “onesie” so that it wouldn’t come untucked from the pants. The topstitching really made the whole thing just “pop”. (side note……I also made the teeny little humpty dumpty……a girl needs toys, doesn’t she?)
Lightweight denim for the overalls……lightweight rib knit for the T……various knits and felt for the little humpty dumpty.
