Mama-made overalls

These overalls are not new, I made them last fall, but Kitten just started wearing them, so I thought I'd share.
(sorry for the blurry photo, Kitten usually starts running towards me when I try to take her picture standing still and looking at me) 

These overalls are made of quilting cotton flannel, so are really soft and a bit warmer than just plain cotton. I love this fabric for fall/spring kids clothes.
The pattern is from The Children's Year: Seasonal Crafts and Clothes. I love this book but projects which require a pattern (thankfully not very many) are a big big pain since they are hand-drawn on a grid paper and one square is 2 inches, which makes it difficult to copy. Plus, there are mistakes in patterns. But if you know how to sew clothes you can work around them, I made these overalls narrower and longer. I am also planning to make them much shorter and from light cotton gauze to have a summer outfit.
