i am making some overalls for a 12" doll like this by request.

the recipient is under 3 years old, though, so i'm wondering how best to make them.. velcro would be easiest for the kid, but would it hold overalls together?

that would be velcro at both sides and at the top straps (basically where the snaps are in this picture).

thoughts?

Velcro will be fine; I make lots of dolls clothes and use velcro constantly. Depending on the position of the fastening, and how I want it to look, sometimes I will sew one bit of the velcro onto a small tab; on some fabrics (check yours) you don't need to use any loop fabric as the whole garment acts as the loop - these fabrics are ones to use with elastic or any other fastening than velcro, IMO!
