10 Adorable Overalls & Dungarees for Toddlers

Take a look at any fashion magazine and you’ll be amazed to see how many stars wear overalls. Overalls (or dungarees or salopettes, depending on where you live!) can be sporty just as much as it can be posh, depending on what you wear with it. But overalls aren’t only for celebrities — they’re simply precious on children, as you’ll see with these fun and cute DIY overall patterns.

Let’s roll up our sleeves and sew DIY overalls!

1. Elephant Overalls

This is probably the funniest design I’ve found! Look at those ears and the trunk — they sure make a statement! The pattern comes in a wide range of sizes (12 months to 12 years), although I think it may be hard to make a tween wear it!

2. Overalls

This overalls pattern, labeled as “advanced” because of the multiple pattern pieces, looks flawless to me: I love the back bib style lines, the back yoke, all of the pockets, the snaps at the sides of the waistline, the double topstitch… I think this one sums up all that I think an overall should look.

3. Playproof Dungaree Skirt

Dungarees are not only pants! This charming gathered skirt can be worn with just a white T-shirt for a summer picnic. Or, layer it on top of your basic leggings or tights with a frilly shirt for a less casual event. This will stretch out its life, so to get the most out of it (don’t you love when clothes are that versatile? I do!).
