The Ollie Overalls, a sturdy garment that can stand up to all the action little boys will inflict on it. The Ollies can be made with reversible double layers or as non-reversible single layer with facings. A plain and print combination looks great. The construction is easy and straightforward without side button plackets or elastic. The overall is roomy enough to slip on and off easily without looking baggy and shapeless. They look best when worn with a T shirt or shirt under. The pattern has enough length to allow for a generous hem or turn-back cuff. There are 3 pocket options to choose from. When using checks or stripes the bib and pockets can be cut on the bias grain for a more interesting look.
