Description

My sister-in-law gave me a whole load of her old clothes. I was wanting to make Little One a pair of overalls from a super cute pattern.
I cut up the skirt and altered the pattern as LO wears cloth nappies and they are so bulky compared to disposable. But then the legs gaped open, so I put elastic in the hem. Then I went to my mother-in-law’s and used her embroidery machine to put Ariel on the pocket and tulips on the right leg in honour of my sister-in-law.
LO loves them and it’s hard to get them off her once they are on!

Material Notes

old denim skirt (long)
not sure what it’s called, but the long strips with press studs already on them
assorted buttons

    They are both adorable, the child and the overalls.
