let's hear it for the boys!

A couple goodies for boys!!!  I decided I needed a little something for boys besides just onesies.  And I really wanted to try making a piece of clothing with my serger.

First up - a pair of chambray overalls with a pocket on front, pockets on the back, elastic at the armhole, patches on the knees, and snaps on the legs.

My second project was the one that has beautifully serged seams and facing!  It's a sleeveless romper with snaps in the legs and buttons at the shoulder.
I only used my regular machine for the topstitching and buttons/ buttonholes.
 Have you ever used snap tape?  Ah.... so much better than sewing snaps on by hand!!!  I would have used it on the overalls, but I didn't have a piece that was quite long enough.

Which one is your favorite???

They are both cute, but the overalls are especially darling! I've never heard of snap tape - genius!

Love the Summer romper! and I love my snap tape too. So much better than hammering in snaps, bug a snap press would be nice too :)
