Overlap Bodysuit sewing pattern (Preemie to 2-3T)

This is the Overlap Bodysuit pdf sewing pattern from the designer Fresh Stitch Patterns.

The designer says that every baby needs a cute and comfortable bodysuit. This quick-to-sew wardrobe staple is designed with a slightly relaxed fit and can be made with short or long sleeves. It can be worn by itself, with pants or skirts, or as a great singlet under other articles of clothing.

This Overlap Bodysuit is made to be worn over cloth or disposable nappies/diapers.

The pdf pattern comes in NINE sizes as follows:-

  • Preemie,
  • Newborn,
  • 0-3 months,
  • 3-6 months,
  • 6-9 months,
  • 9-12 months,
  • 12-18 months,
  • 18-24 months,
  • 2-3 years.

So what fabrics does the designer say you should use to make her Overlap Bodysuit? You should use light to medium weight knit fabric with at least 25% stretch. The designer likes to use a good quality knit that contains 5% elastane (spandex or Lycra). And for the ribbing use a fine baby 1:1.

You’ll also need some notions. You should use three sets of either 8mm or 9.5mm metal snap fasteners or size 14 plastic snaps (9.7mm or 3/8”). You’ll also need a ball point sewing needle, twin ball point needle (optional), walking foot (optional), serger (optional), coverstitch machine (optional), stay tape (optional) and co-ordinating thread.
