The Overmost sewing pattern a7

At last, at last!!  The Overmost pattern is BACK!

The Overmost sewing pattern a1

I originally released this pattern back in 2010, and it has been one of my best-selling styles.  Over the years, I have loved and used and my children have worn and worn and worn this design, and I couldn’t be more excited to give it a much-needed facelift and release it back into the world!

The Overmost sewing pattern a3

This is a classic overall style for boys and girls.  It has a full-length option (an overALL) and a short version (an overMOST).  Both are fully lined or reversible, and they are a snap to sew!  An elastic back waist gives tummies room to grow, and the straps make the length fully adjustable–even when handed down between children.

The high front bib and low back with cross-back straps is such a wonderful, timeless shape.  It works great with tee shirts or button ups, with cardigans or sweatshirts.  And make the straps with Velcro closures, and they even work for potty training!

This revised version of the pattern has a slightly more tapered body for an updated style, but with the same features and pocket options as the previous version.  The instructions have been completely revised, with both photos AND line drawings for each step along the way.  The tablet-friendly format of the instructions means you can print only the pattern pieces and easily refer to the instructions on your device–but their grey-scale design means printing the instructions won’t eat up your ink, if that’s what you decide to do.

Coming up on the blog, I’ve got a few posts planned with variations of this pattern, including adding sweet ruffles or trim along the bib!

The Overmost works great for any season: line and lightweight yarn-dyed cottons for summer, two quilt-weight cottons for spring and fall, even denim or corduroy with fleece lining for the colder climates.

I love styles that work equally well for boys AND girls, and this is one of them.  I love that you can easily hand them down between children, or even make a pair with confidence to give as a gift!

The Overmost pattern comes in sizes 2T-6 and prints on 16 sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ or A4 paper (pattern pieces only) or 35 sheets (pattern pieces and instructions both).

I hope you’ll make a zillion pair and share them all over!  Use #theovermost on Instagram and Facebook–I can’t wait to see what you’ll make!!

    Gah! My son is a little too big & too old for this pattern, or I’d be all over it. Your models are beyond adorable, though.

      Tragically, since I first released this design, mine have gotten so big, too!! The 6yo has a pair of train overalls in striped denim that I’ll share next week (he looooves them), and then the littlest, of course. But our oldest has outgrown this pattern. Hmmm…I wonder if there needs to be a tween version?? 🙂

      It took a LOT of laps around the yard to get the photos–but I love the way her curls fly out behind her! 🙂

    […] I used to manufacture clothes for kids at a local indy boutique, I made a zillion versions of The Overmost in cord, and the softness combined with the texture was always, always a […]

    Oh, this is such a darling pattern. I love that it can be used for both girls and boys…two for one is always a plus! I also like that you designed the instructions to be easily read on a tablet-very thoughtful.

    I love overalls on little boys, I have two, and was wanting to make some matching summer ones for them. I think these would be super cute in a madras!
