I have been scouring the boards as well as many searches on the web and have found nothing. I need a basic pattern for overalls that will come over the shoulders and fasten with a button. No pockets or any of that jazz on it. I am making my sons Halloween costume (Mario) and need to make the overalls. I am planning on making them a little bigger than my son, so I can put an extra layer behind the front so i can put some cotton or something in there to make him rounder like Mario. Any help would be sooooo appreciated. Thanks!! Grin

Ok, forgive me if this is not clear but here goes:

I made some overalls one time for a halloween costume too. I too had no pattern. So this is what I did. I took a pants pattern that I had that fit my son, lay the pattern on the fabric, measure son from waist to about 3 inches below underarm, added that total to top of pants, cut out all pieces and sewed them as directions state, then measured around his chest plus a few inches for ease, cut a strip of fabric 4 inches (3 inches plus seam allowance) by chest measurement, sewed it to top of pants patterns and added some straps. Make sense? It worked, and it looked cute. He was actually a scarecrow so I made mine with pockets on the front and back to put hay in. Can't find pics right now to show you, sorry. But hope this helps. If not, check ebay.

Can make dresses for your princess!

McCalls has one and I'm sorry I don't remember the number of it.  Joanns had a sale on them last week and I almost bought it.  It has the overall pants and skirt to the pattern.  Look on their website under infant/toddlers and you should find it.

How old/big is your son?  Today I was sorting through my patterns and found a pattern for toddler o'alls (McCall M4756, sizes 1-4) that I doubt I'll ever use. . .PM me if you could use it. Smiley
