I used the 3-6 month size and the pattern went together so smoothly.
I use to make lots of bib overalls for the twins from the time they were 3 until about 7. I knew the steps and was familiar with the construction but working with plaid was a new one.
I decided to cut out the main pattern pieces, matching the side seams. I also remembered something from the Great British Sewing Bee, May stated how important it was to keep the pattern the same down the center front. I tried to do this with the bib, the waistband and the pants
I have a marking pen which when ironed disappears, found it at my local quilt shop, Material Girl Quilt Shop, this came in quite handy to help me with the plaid matching. Once I was ready for a pocket piece, I placed that pocket pattern piece on the pants and marked the plaid pattern.
Then I take that pattern piece, move it over to my fabric, line up the markings and cut out the pocket. After that, put the iron on the pattern piece and the lines disappear.
Here is the pocket during construction:
Back pockets, a bit hard to see, I omitted the plier pocket.
Now the front. The label is 13 years old at least. I was on this sewing list called Sew4Kids through quiltropolis and someone shared the link to this site in Australia, Lamington Labels. I bought several of these cute labels. Always thought it made the clothes look more RTW. I cannot find them online and wish I could. Anyone know a source for something like this?
Pockets, side snaps
One thing make sure the straps measure 1-1/4" so the buckles will fit. I had to do some unsewing as my straps were too wide for the buckles.
I did have to put some fabric behind the buttons for the buckles. The fabric was just too thin and needed some thickness to support the buckles.
The little guy is growing like crazy, so I told Erin to put him in these quick, I want him to have a few wearings before they are too small.
Here is the little guy in the cars onsie - his mom said make the next size if you do more
