The Over It Alls are comfortable and quick to make. As a result they make perfect lounge wear or play clothing.
The Over It Alls pattern goes right from prem./small newborn up to Age 12! There are long and short options, and the choice of a kanga pouch pocket or a semi circle through pocket. Choose between semi-lined or fully lined/reversible and long or short. Additionally, a snap crotch can be added to all sizes. Altogether the options make for a hugely versatile pattern!
Light to mid-weight knit/stretch fabrics (e.g. french terry, sweatshirt fleece or jersey) are ideal for this pattern.
The pattern is suitable for enthusiastic beginners.

This was the first pattern I used when I bought my overlocker. What a revelation! Easy to follow, and such a practical, comfortable garment for little (and not so little) ones. I’ve made about 12 pairs so far, both long and short, in sizes from newborn to age 10. They are universally loved.
My first pattern purchased here – I have made this so many times now in several sizes. My absolute go to for a me made pressie – this has given me so much confidence in my sewing and I think I could do it in my sleep now! Tried and tested!!

The Over It All’s are just so versatile! My ‘go to’ pattern for all my ‘Little’s’.
(Not so keen on it for older children as it has no shaping around the crotch area – but I know lots of Wilders whose older children love them).
I’ve made shorties and full length. I’ve colour blocked, added piping across the chest (in order to fit the pattern on smaller lengths of fabric). I’ve added frills around the leg hems and used the pattern for dress hacks.
Sarah’s patterns are easy to follow and I couldn’t be without this one…

I love making overitalls they are very quick to sew with no hemming required. The style is very practical for play and they look very cute on
These are my favourite pattern, I love printing at home and find it very therapeutic putting them together. My grandchildren love my little overitalls and they are so comfy for them to wear. I love making them and since I started sewing w&w I have found my happy place in my sewing room

Totally agree with all the reviews above! This was one of my first forays into stretch fabrics and practicing with my overlocker and since then I have made at least 10 pairs – the finished garment looks so cute and makes a beautiful present – the instructions are really clear and easy to follow. Also as with all the waves and wild patterns I have tried – there are multiple ways of switching it up with the various pattern options. HIGHLY recommend 👍🏼

This was the first thing I made with stretch fabric and I’m now onto my third pair. Made as a present for a friend and did a trial run for my little girl. They look so cute on and were easy to make (even for a beginner like me).
Would highly recommend.

I love this pattern. The instructions are so easy to understand and the finished overitalls are perfect.
