2 thoughts on “Overall Shorts or Pants and Blouse pattern

  1. Thank you for this, Carol. I LOVE the blouse. I’m surprised they made this kind as early as the 1940s. I always thought blouses with a snapped crotch developed later when knits became more popular. I looked over the fabrics recommended. I wonder if using a woven fabric made the blouse a little uncomfortable.


    • I agree. Some changes might be to add elastic around the leg openings or to use a stretchy fabric in the lower part of the blouse and crotch only. I might make it up in cotton to see how it fits and wears. I had a blouse like this years ago. The fabric was probably a lightweight poly. It was very comfortable to wear and kept me a little warmer in the winter.
