This outfit is the one I really wish was in my size.
Short-sleeve, boxy sweatshirt and a pair of bleached out overalls. I’ve heard that if you wore a trend the first time, you shouldn’t go for it when it comes around again. I wore overalls pretty much nonstop through the late 90s-early aughts. But I never had a bleached out pair, and I for sure never had a sweet little floral top to wear with them. So I could pull this off now, right?
The overalls are the Okey Dokey Overalls from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop (affiliate link). I got a little confused on the back button tabs, but other than that, the pattern is pretty easy. Just a ton of steps. I narrowed the bib a little and the legs, to make them a bit more feminine and on-trend. And I did some extra top stitiching on the bib pocket just ‘cause. I also screwed up on the side snaps and somehow managed to install two different colors: bronze on the left and black on the right. I didn’t notice until I was all finished, and I’m not sure I care enough to switch out the black for another bronze. The fabric is leftover from these jeans I made Seth two years ago. I had bleached the denim for that look, and had quite a bit leftover I’ve been saving. I still have enough for a pair of shorts for one of the kids. The denim is pretty lightweight, and perfect for spring and summer.
