    This was such a fun piece to sew up. The directions were very straight forward and the combo of one drawings and photos really helped me as I was figuring out the construction. I absolutely love that in the end all seams are enclosed! It makes for a fairly easy project to put together!

    great pattern! super clear, I read the whole thing on the computer, and then only printed out the cheat sheet, so I don’t feel like I wasted paper. My 2 year old has gotten lots of complements on his overalls, and he loves wearing them!
