Sunday at 1 pm, I’ll be at Fancy Tiger Crafts in Denver to teach a workshop, sewing up the Overmost! I may also be suffering from extreme hypothermia, since it is FREEZING in Denver right now. Good thing the Overmost is fully lined–babywale corduroy! fleece! flannel! It’s perfect for cold weather. I just wish it came in my size.
It’s called the OverMOST because it’s not OverALL, but it seemed silly not to make a pattern that could be both long AND short. I still call the long version the Overmost, though. It’s funner to say.
Gah!! Look at that belly! These can also be made fully reversible, using two quilt-weight cottons or other lightweight fabrics. I rarely flip them all the way over, but have been known to do it when there’s a spill that needs covering up and I don’t have an extra set of clothing around. The version above is in a herringbone linen, way back when our boy was a bitty bit. Sigh. Chubby cheeks!!
We’ll also be talking about adding rick rack or trim or ruffles while we’re in the workshop, a detail that wasn’t available in the original version of the pattern but WILL be part of the re-boot. Woot!
The updated version of the pattern will be available when I get back from teaching this workshop–register now for one of the handful of remaining spots available, or get the newsletter to get an email when the new pattern is released!
Also: send me warming energy this weekend, y’all. I don’t even have the right clothes for sub-zero temperatures. And I suffer from seasonal dry skin. Whimper.
