Whew! Getting this little boy to stay still for long enough to take a nice picture is nearly impossible. He’s not just walking at 10 months . . . he’s running!
I love these one-piece coveralls for the winter, as well as their summer cousin, the romper. They’re so easy to grab and go. Both the coverall and the romper will be included in my next Fishsticks Designs pattern release.
I’m designing the romper and coveralls in sizes newborn to 9 months with the overlapping neckline. It’s easy to pull on over those sweet newborn heads, and it’s a simple easy-to-sew design.
The larger sizes starting at 12 months will include patterns for both the overlapping neck and the basic t-shirt neckband. That will give you a little variation in how you sew these up. That’s always one of my big goals. I want you to get comfortable with a pattern and be able to sew up a wardrobe without everything looking the same!
I do have a question for you. You can usually only find these in ready-to-wear up to size 24 months. I think that there are a lot of mamas who would love to have them up to 4T, though, for bigger little ones who aren’t yet using the potty. Would you sew these in sizes 3T and 4T if you had a pattern available?
I’ll be working on the summer romper over the next few days. I’ll just have to make them a little big . . . there’s snow in the forecast here on Monday, so I don’t think we’ll be using them outside of the house anytime soon!
I recently found a coverall that fits my 2 year old son & we love it for being around the house! I’d love to have the pattern in sizes up to 4T so I can make him a few comfy coveralls
Up to 4T?? Yes, Please! 🙂

Okay so yes I’d love 4T sizing! My little guy (just a month behind yours) loves this style of clothing…he is hard to please & I have a hard time finding the overlap top in the stores (plus 100% cotton, I said he’s picky)…anyway having a larger size would be fabulous.
Yes, I would love to see these in bigger sizes! I would even like to see them with footies in them for the bigger sizes.
Your children are so lucky to have such a wealth of darling and comfortable clothes.
LOVE IT Bonnie!!!! So can’t wait! And you didn’t tell me you were doing a romper too! So glad I haven’t started Sim’s summer clothes. 🙂 I was soo glad for the time spent with you tonight. You really are precious. 🙂 Thank you for being such an encouragement to me.
Also would love up to a 4T AND footies too! My little dude rarely sleeps in his bed, he is a sleep on the cold floor kind of dude 🙁 I like to keep him warm!
