I was able to test out the newest pattern for Petite Stitchery amongst the chaos of quarantine with 4 kids and Covid-19. The Rey Overalls in adult, kids and baby sizes all released this week and are packed full of options like all PSCO patterns are!
I sewed up the adult option for myself and am so excited to share it with you! This pattern requires a stable knit with 50% 4 way stretch. I am including the line drawing below so you can see how many options are available to mix and match. Just a few of them are overalls in shorts, skirt or pants, stand alone pants, skirt or shorts and tons of different accents such as pockets, drawstrings and closures.
I opted for the shorts overalls since it is already getting quite hot in South Florida. I sewed a size medium using the front tie straps, bib pocket, 5″ shorts inseam and drawstring in the waistband. For my fabric I used a dreamy stretch suede I scored on clearance at Hobby Lobby for super cheap. I only had one yard and was able to squeeze my entire set out including the lining! I love that the front bodice, back bodice and waistband are all lined for a really clean professional finish. I paired my overalls with a sleeveless Juliet leotard in cotton lycra from Purpleseamstress for the perfect Spring outfit.
These patterns are on sale for a short time here and are eligible for bundle discounts on the website as well! I’m going to sew up all the shorts and overalls for summer over here. I’d love to see what you create:)
