For all my followers who live in the United States, happy Thanksgiving today! This will be a great holiday sewing project, if you’re hoping to make something small and fun on your day off…

Today’s free, printable PDF sewing patterns look so stinkin’ cute on my little 8-inch Ginny doll! I can’t tell you how proud I am of this creation!

I always test my own patterns before I publish them, but I had so much fun making these little overalls for Ginny, that I actually created two versions of them, a denim one and the Christmas-green version with the teeny-tiny white stars on it:

On a purple background fabric with tiny white polka dots, we see three photos of a 1980's Vogue Ginny 8 inch doll modeling two different sets of handmade doll overalls. On the left, the photo shows a side view, and in this photo she wears green cotton overalls with a tiny white star printed on the fabric. Her tee shirt underneath is made of white cotton jersey. In the center we see Ginny wearing handmade overalls made of lightweight denim fabric, and she's facing front so we can clearly see the overalls' bib and straps. She wears a pink cotton short sleeved shirt underneath, which has tiny white polka dots. In the far right photo, Ginny wears the green cotton overalls with tiny white stars again, and we're looking at her from the back where the side closure flaps that snap at the sides are visible. Over the top of these photos, it says, "free PDF sewing patterns" and offers the logo for the website.

I don’t know if you can tell in the image above, but the overalls have a little side flap, which functions sort of like a fly on a pair of fitted pants. You’ll need to sew two size 4/0 Dritz snaps onto each of these flaps.

For my green overalls, I only used one snap, and I honestly regretted that. So follow my advice and use two snaps for each flap. Don’t be stingy! That way your side flaps will close over nicely.

The earlier rendition of the pants pattern had more of a tapered leg, as you’ll see below:

In this photo, a Vogue Ginny doll (8 inches tall) with dark brown hair that has bangs (fringes), models a pair of denim overalls with a pink short-sleeved cotton shirt. The overalls have a bib in front with straps that attach behind the bib. There are gathers at the front of the overalls, to allow room for Ginny's little tummy. She wears tiny blue shoes. She stands in a room with a purple wall and white floor. The Chelly Wood dot com logo appears in one corner.

But I changed that to a wider leg in the final rendition of the pattern. If you’d like to learn how to change the pattern back to a tapered leg, that’s exactly what I teach people in my Creative Spark class, “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns.” Click on that link to learn more.

To sew today’s overalls project, you’ll need some cotton fabric or lightweight denim fabric, some 1/4 inch woven elastic, and some Dritz size 4/0 snaps. For my green pants, I chose a Christmas holiday fabric, and if you’d like to purchase holiday fabric, these links will help you find some in a very small print.
