Knit Overalls

Elliott's new duds.
I finished these knit overalls today (bind off straps, sew on buttons) but I did the actual knitting a year and a half ago on the plane to St. John Virgin island. Good memories :)
I followed this free pattern using old/'vintage' worsted weight wool and size 7 needles; buttons from my stash.
I need to improve my short row shaping, you can see little puckers (above).

This pattern fits babies very well; here is the crotch gusset to accommodate their diapered derrieres.

My mom has been making hazel knit tights, and has been having problems with the crotch. That gusset is perfect!
