The other day when I was scrolling through Pinterest I saw toile baby bloomers with straps. I can’t find the pin now, but I was instantly inspired. I remembered I had a toile-like fabric that I’ve had in my stash for years. Since I’ve pulled back from doing tutorials, I now have time to sew when I have a sudden spark of inspiration. These overalls have a crossover front with straps that cross in the back.

They are so cute and so fun for summer. I love the gathered legs around her chubby leg rolls. She is already trying to bring her legs up under her tummy!

Pattern: I used a pattern from the book Kwik Sew Sewing for Baby. (This is my very favorite sewing book.)
Fabric: I have had this toile fabric since I first got married. I can’t remember which store I got it at.
Time: 2 hours
Cost: Fabric was originally $2 a yard and I used about 1/3. With thread and snaps it’s about $1.50.

It looks so great with a cute, striped cardigan too!
