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