A bavarian named Tom Sawyer
What a scoop, isn’t it! Tom Sawyer is from Bavaria! Indeed!
♫ “Tom Sawyer is american
the symbol of freedom
he was born on the banks of the Mississippi River
Tom Sawyer is a friend to us all” ♫
(Do not thank me, I know you like small songs that stick all day! )
So, as the song says, my little Bavarian is born in America (not quite on the banks of the Mississippi, but I do so much anachronism, that you can afford one more!) and wears a beautiful pants like Tom Sawyer !
But the real truth is that I had started my Tom Sawyer’s outfit , for … Oula … very long time!
Proof, I published the matching shirt in June (and if you’ve already read it until the end, you know that the shirt himself was waiting during a number of months in the basket!)…. The celebration for Oktoberfest seemed be the perfect opportunity to finish this little overalls!

Once again, you can applaud the feat of Kallou: just the snaps are missing to finish this overalls … clap, clap, clap!
Let’s be forgiving, I was convinced it was necessary to resew the straps, as they seemed really tiny. But of course without taking the time to try it on my little man … Never judge a garment on a hanger! Never!
In fact, the straps are long enough, as it is a very high waist pants! So I did not have to redo my straps (they were a nightmare to sew)! Whew!
By cons, I shortened the legs of 10 centimeters, because if my son has biiig feet, he has not the stature that goes with it! (I’ll make him eat soup, I think! )
Pattern : Oliver pants from Ottobre 6/2007 in 92 cm (legs shorten by 10 cm), caramel corduroy and handmade button by talented Christalline (if you want the same buttons, they are avalaible here, and I also buy these liberty patterned buttons)!
These pants gave me some fears (I still don’t understand the mounting straps explanations!), but I love it! Lots of details that make it looks really nice: the placket on the side, this beautiful deck type pants with pockets , leg straps on the back … and my son looks really gorgeous in this outfit! I LOVE it!
And as you can see on the pictures, you can do everything in these pant, even doing acrobatics movements with dad!
But a Bavarian (even Tom Sawyer-izer) would be nothing without her “über schön” Bavarian’s girl!
They are so cute, didn’t they!
