Stylin’ Overalls – Secretary


Secretary made these chic overalls for her nephew, “Little Hog”. They are sewn out of sturdy Japanese cotton/linen from Britex that is adorned with wee planes, helicopters and floaty little clouds. We love Secretaries attention to detail; the slash pockets are lined with natural linen, she used brass snaps for fasteners, and she fashioned these pants from a vintage pattern. “Little Hog” is going to be one stylin’ dude! Japanese cotton/linen is 44” wide and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

Toddler’s Fork Pants by Secretary

Secretary from Britex’s 4th floor made these easy-peasy two piece pants for her nephew, “Little Hog”. He likes to wear these while gumming and sucking down Brazilian barbeque. Yum!

(We think children’s pants would also be super cute in this retro-looking dotted mushroom or this swingin’ birdcage fabric)
