This is my new playsuit/overalls! I’ve been wanting a cute vintage style denim playsuit for so long. I’m generally a dress/skirt girl, but there are certain things that are just not as easy in a dress. Riding my bike is one of them.
At some point, I realized that the Parfait pattern would look awesome as a playsuit. Then I realized that I had this heavy, dark vintagey denim in my stash. And these awesome vintage red and white buttons. And a cherry print cotton that I bought at Joann in the 90s, which I used for the in-seam pockets. So this whole thing was kinda-sorta free.
To alter Parfait, I just used a shorts pattern from the 1950s that I had and bolted that on to the bodice. The 50s shorts are a little odd, they tend to exaggerate the hips a bit which I don’t particularly mind, but it’s not a look for everyone.
I did the buttonholes in red, frankly because I ran out of the heavy navy thread I’d been using. But I like it!
