Recntly, some blogging friends and I decided it would be fun to surprise our friend Melissa from Sew Like My Mom with a pattern tour, because we think she’s super awesome and her patterns are crazy fab. Also, surprises are really fun. :)
I absolutely love sewing overalls for my boys – because really, how cute is a little boy in overalls?! I’ve made them with sweaters, knit fabric, corduroy, and mushrooms. When Melissa came out with her Kudzu Coveralls (and dress) pattern, I died with cuteness.
First of all, Melissa is a pattern writing genius. This pattern requires printing only a few pages, and the way she puts the pieces together is really something you have to see for yourself.
The Kudzu can be sewn as overalls or as a dress, and has ridiculously cute appliqué options. And it is SO fast. We all know how much I love really fast sewing projects. ;)
My little guy is a year, but he’s small, so I wasn’t sure how the 12-18mo size would work. I ended up taking it in a bit on the sides and adding two snap settings. It’s still a little bit big, but still wearable for now, and perfect for growing into this summer.
I adore everything about this pattern. It’s super comfy and gives you the perfect opportunity to use those adorable woven fabrics that you can’t really use once your kids get older. ;)
And you know I was right, how can you resist this overall-clad baby?!
The Kudzu is not the only pattern from Sew Like My Mom, so pop over to visit these other blogs to see some more amazingness from the Sew Like My Mom Surprise Pattern Tour! :)
