William Shortall Pattern

William Shortall Pattern


The William shortall is a fun spin on a Patsy Aiken staple! Our classic shortall has unique piecing on each side front and back and features button shoulders. This shortall can grow with him with an extra 2” for moving the buttons as needed on the back straps. Front and back facings make it sturdy and the snap inseam is perfect for changing diapers or potty training. We love this made in a stripe with each panel turned a different direction, but the possibilities are endless. Topstitch each panel for added detail and add a center front monogram or embroidery to make it even more special. Sizes 6M-4 are included in this pattern.

We recommend using a medium weight woven fabric. Perfect for stripes in seersucker or printed cotton broadcloth, twill or stretch twill. Would also work for “color-blocking” or “pattern-blocking” in chambray, gingham/check and plaid. Please note that extra fabric is required to match plaids. Yardage may vary based on your creative interpretation of the “blocking”. Prewash and dry fabrics before cutting.
