Overalls For Dress Me Bunny Boy Clothes

Oh boy bunny, I do love you so!

Hello Friends, thanks to your many requests I've made boy clothes, yay! It was a little bit scary to venture out from my comfort zone but I'm so glad I did. I see more boy clothes in the future. I have a full video tutorial to go along with this pattern so if you have never made doll pants before don't be afraid to try!
Now the Dress Me Bunny has a pair of overalls, 2 different dresses, shoes plus a couple of accessory patterns. I'll link you up right here so you don't have to go searching, then just scroll down this page for the written pattern. There is a print
friendly option at the bottom of this page. I hope you enjoy!

Supplies: 
Red Heart Comfort yarn any color (to make the matching overalls to the Carrot Dress  use Emerald 3233)
same hook size you used to make your bunny
2 buttons

regular sewing thread and needle
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors

Abbreviations:

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet

FLO = Front Loops Only
f/o = finish off


Overall Pants: If you have troubles please view the video
1) ch 42
2) starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (41) ch 2 and turn
3-7) start in the 3rd st from the hook, 1hdc in each st for 5 rows
8) 1hdc in each st for 1 row, connect the ends with your first hdc (41)
9) 1hdc in each st for 1 row
10) 1hdc in the next 2st, ch3 and sl st into the 20th st from the front of the ch
11) now working in the round to your left. 1hdc in the next 3st then 2hdc in the next st, repeat this 5
times. Add a marker into the last st you put in.
*not including the separating chain this row now has 25st *Please note in the video for row 11 I did sc instead of hdc which is a mistake on my part. Please use hdc. I will be fixing the video asap.
12) 1hdc into 5 spaces or loops of the chain separating the pant legs then 1hdc in the remaining 25st of the row (30)
13-14) 1hdc in each st for 2 rows
15) 1sc in each of the FLO for 1 row
16) 1sc in each st for 1 row
sl st next st and f/o weave in yarn tail



2nd pant leg: insert yarn into the first st in front of the chain that separated the pant legs and go in the same direction you did when you made the first pant leg.
1) 1hdc in the next 4st (now for the remainder of the row, 1hdc in next 3st then 2hdc in next st, repeat this sequence 4 times) (not including the separating chain this row now has 25st) Remember to add a marker into the last stitch you put in before continuing on with row 2
2) 1hdc into 5 spaces of the chain that separated the pant legs. You will have to turn the edge of the chain upwards so you can crochet into it, then 1hdc in the remaining 25st of the row (30)

3-4) 1hdc in each st for 2 rows
5) 1sc in the FLO for 1 row
6) 1sc in each st for 1 row
sl st next st and f/o leave a tail for sewing 

Flip pants inside out or right side out. That's the side it will stay on. Roll the bottom of the pant legs up the the ridge we created by crocheting in the FLO. You can add in a stitch or 2 if needed but they should stay rolled up on their own. Weave in yarn tails. Stitch up any gaps you see in the back of the pants. There might be a small gap where we connected the panel together on row 8. You can also sew the 2 corners together above the bunny tail hole or if you'd rather, you can sew on snaps or sew on a button. See video if my instructions are unclear.

Front Panel:

1) ch 13
2) starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (12) ch 2 and turn
3-8) 1hdc in each st for 6 rows ( ch 2 and turn at the end of every row. At the end of row 8 ch 3 and turn)
9) This row we make 2 button holes. sl st into the 4th st from the front of the ch then sl st the next 4st, ch 3 and sl st in the last st of the row. f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave in the shorter yarn tail to hide it.


Straps make 2:

1) ch 22
2) starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (21)
f/o leaving a tail for sewing. Weave in the shorter yarn tail to hide it. Make sure the buttons fit through the button hole then
sew a button to the end of the strap that has no yarn tail. The other end gets sewn on the inside of the overalls as pictured.

Back Pockets: (these are optional)
1) ch 10
2) starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (9)
ch2 and turn
3-6) 1hdc in each st for 4 rows (ch2 and turn at the end of each row except for the end of row 6 and start in the 3rd st from the hook)
f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave the shorter yarn tail in to hide it.
When sewing around the pocket be sure to pierce the side stitches, sewing in a line down the edges of the pockets instead of wrapping (whip stitching) around the stitches. If you whip stitch this will create holes in the sides of the pockets.
if you would like to make a carrot as pictured, the pattern can be found here



And you're done. I hope you enjoyed this pattern. If you'd like to show off  your bunny and overalls you can post pictures on my facebook page, I'd love to see!

  7. Good afternoon!! I was watching the you tube video for making the over alls, and I noticed that on row 11 you say to do 3sc, then 2sc but on the printed instructions it says to start row 11 with 1hdc in the next 3st then 2hdc in the next stitch. I just wanted to double check to see if we do hdc or sc. I love all of your videos!! Thank you!!

    1. Hello Cindy,
      my apologies, that is a mistake on the video. It is supposed to be hdc. I'll add an annotation to the video now. I don't know how I managed to let that slip by unnoticed! I thank you very much for pointing that out.

  8. Hi. I just found your fantastic videos a couple of days ago, and yesterday went out and bought everything to do some. I have never done crochet before but i am really enjoying it so far, and you make it so easy to follow along.I have the bunnies head done so far and will be working on the body today.

    I just want to thank you for doing the boys trousers as my eldest son picked this bunny for me to do for him (as he wanted the easter bunny) and my youngest has asked for 4 of your turtles from back in 2012, then as you may have guessed i have to come up with 4 masks for them to wear to turn them into tmnt for him.

    Again thank you

  9. Hello, Sharon!

    If it wouldn't be too much to ask, could you make more animal tutorials in the style of the spring rabbit and the valentine bear you did? It'd be really great if you could make a sheep or a cat or something like that. :) Thank you!

    P.S I love your tutorials and I'm currently making the rabbit!

  10. Hi Sharon,

    I love your designs. Can this overall fit the pig you designed?

  11. Ok I'm a bit confused and need your help. I've been following the pattern and using the video for reference when I need help but I've run into a small problem. In the pattern for row 11 you have 1hdc in the next 3st then 2hdc in the next st, repeat this 5, but in the video it's 1sc in the 3st and 2sc in the next st. So I'm wondering which is correct?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh my goodness I completely missed where you explained this in the pattern. My mistake. :)

    1. no worries. I haven't replaced the video yet because it really doesn't effect the shape or outcome of the overalls and at the moment my time is stretched super thin. I have the blue pair I made in the video and I can't really tell that I made that mistake, lol But I'm glad you read the note in the pattern and got it figured out. My apologies for the confusion and thank you for understanding :)

  13. Hi!! I love your patterns and crochted work!! I am in the middle of making the amigurumi Coraline doll. My question is, can I make the overalls and dress small enough for an amigurumi doll? If so, how do I go about doing this? Do you have a clothes pattern for dolls? Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete

    1. you can use a lighter weight yarn and a smaller hook. You'd want to test the first couple rows on the doll you want them for to see if it's coming out a good size.

  16. I've got a little bit of trouble with row 10. You say to slip stitch the chain into the 20th stitch in front of the row. But when I do that I have one stitch short in row 11. What am I doing wrong? Or should I slip stitch the chain in the 21st stitch.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. don't worry about the number of stitches you have, sl st into the 20th st as it is written. there is a video to follow if you have too much trouble. And if you're still missing a stitch just add 2hdc into a st that requires only one and that will bring your stitch count up to the right number.

  17. Thanks for the clothes. It was hard to find free patterns of them.
    Fortunality i follow you on FB. After the summer season I'll start trying to making them.
    At the moment it's too hot to crochet, but I have a lot of patterns on my to-do list.
    I'm looking forward to make the bunny, the clothes and the basket.

  18. Hi Sharon.. i really thank you for your pattern. I made some bunnys and bears and mongkeys and i love them all. Now i've got tons of compliment bout my ability in crocheting and its all because of you. Thank you so much ^_^

  19. Hi! Firstly - thank you so much for your awesome patterns!
    I have a problem with the overalls though. I definitely did everything the way you did, but I can't get it to work. Around the waist the pants are much too wide, I can easily put 2 fingers in. My legs look wider than yours too (but my number of stitches was always correct).
    Also, it's a bit hard to pull the pants over the bunny's bottom. The tail is in the way (although it's sewn on the body quite low).
    I really don't know what the problem might be. It's a pity because it would look so cute!

    1. Hi Karin,

      First I would ask if you are using the same yarn weight and hook size that you made your bunny with? And 2nd, the width shouldn't matter so much as you will be adding straps that will hold the overalls on.
      And yes, it does take some adjusting to get the overalls around the tail, that is completely normal for sure. I think I even show that in the video, I have to tuck the tail inside but after it's on the bunny and the tail is through the hole it's fine.

      If your number of stitches are always correct and you're using the same yarn and hook size then I would suggest a smaller hook for the overalls and then maybe that will help is all I can suggest. Hope that helps!

      Delete
    2. Thank you for your reply!
      Yes, I've been using the same yarn and hook size. It's possible though that I wasn't crocheting as tightly as I did with the bunny.
      I'll try again using a smaller hook and working a little tighter.
      Btw - I've already made a dress too, and it worked perfectly. It looks soooo cute!

      Thank you so much for all your amazing patterns! Those will be the perfect Christmas gifts this year!

  20. Hey, this is me again, retrying to make those overalls, and I *think* I've found an error in the video (and please forgive me if I'm mistaken).
    In the written pattern you say 3-7 is 1hdc in each st.
    Row 8 is 1 hdc in each st as well, then connect. To me that means I'm doing 6 rows of hdc in total and then connect.
    However, in the video you say 3-7 is 1 hdc in each st. Then row 8 connect and do 1 hdc in each st. That would be just 5 rows before connecting, which is what I did in my first attempt as I was working with the video.
    Now looking again more closely it does look like you made 6 rows in the video. At 7:19 you hold the piece into the camera and if I count right, there are 6 rows of hdc. Which would mean, when you say you're at the end of row 7 it's actually the end of row 8 (counting the chains as row 1).
    Again, if I'm misunderstanding something, I apologize.

    1. it's been a while since i made the video so I'm a bit confused on your question. I would just tell you don't count the rows in the video. I had made a mistake somewhere and I made a note of that in this written pattern. Many people have used the written pattern and the overalls turn out just fine. Just use the video to show you how to connect or any other parts that might be confusing. Hopefully that will help for now until I can fix the video. The written pattern is correct, the video is correct except for the part I made note of. Don't count any rows on the piece I'm holding up and just follow the written instructions and the overalls should turn out for you :)

      Delete
    2. I just read your question again. rows 3-7 is 5 rows. You include 3 as a row. Then another row makes 6. So if you counted 6 rows that is right, lol sorry I was in a hurry this morning when I read your question but now looking again I think you just misunderstood that you include 3 in the row count so again, 3-7 is 5 rows add one more row and that does make 6 rows so you counted correctly and the pattern is correct as well.

      Delete
    3. Karin, I am so sorry I deleted your last comment. I was trying to publish it then answer you but I hit the wrong button and blogger just deletes without warning. My apologies.

      I saw in your comment that I misunderstood you but don't know exactly what you said after that.

      The only mistake that I found was what I pointed out in the pattern already which is:
      *not including the separating chain this row now has 25st *Please note in the video for row 11 I did sc instead of hdc which is a mistake on my part. Please use hdc. I will be fixing the video asap.

      But that is the only mistake that I know of. Is that what you mean?

      Delete
  21. No problem, I'll try again. (Good practice for my English, lol.)

    No, the mistake you mentioned wasn't what I meant.
    What I'm talking about refers to the 3rd and 4th step of the written pattern. 3rd step is row 3-7 (5 rows of hdc), 4th step is row 8 (1 more row of hdc + connect).
    So in the written pattern it's clear that it's 6 rows of hdc in total. I'm supposed to connect *after* doing row 8.
    But in the video (at about 7:15) you say you got to the end of row 7, and right after that you connect. In fact you must be at the end of row 8 though, as there are 6 rows of hdc on your piece already, not just 5.
    In my first attempt I consequently followed the video without looking at the writtern pattern (and also not really reading the text in the video), I just did what you said. Thus I missed that 8th row and connected after row 7. That was the reason why the pants wouldn't go over my bunny's bottom so well. The new overalls I made with the written pattern fit much better now.

    I hope that's understandble now! :-)

    1. thanks for hanging in there in trying to explain it to me. It's been a long time since I did the overalls so it's hard for me to see in my mind what you mean. I will go over the video again one of these days and see if I can find the mistake. I had planned on re-filming it anyway just as soon as I get the time to do so.

      So many people have made them and never said there was a mistake but mistakes can happen so thank you for pointing it out to me :)

      All the best to you,
      Sharon

  22. Of course mistakes can happen! I certainly didn't mean to criticize, but just point it out as you said.
    Generally your videos are so clear and easy to work with!
    Thank you again for everything you put online for us here! I really appreciate it and I just can't get enough of crocheting your adorable dolls! (Right now I'm making the little teddy bear in light and dark purple and it's soooo adorable - not sure how I'm supposed to give it away for Christmas, I'd rather keep it!)

    And now I'm gonna go make a donation so as to show my appreciation not only with words. :-)

    Have a great weekend!

    1. awww thank you Karin! I don't feel criticized at all, I know you are just trying to help me fix it. It's been a pleasure even though I didn't totally understand I will check into it and fix everything as soon as possible.
      Those overalls were the first pair of pants I made into a pattern, I'm actually not a clothing designer so it was hard for me to figure it out and get it into words for other people to follow. It's much easier for me to just make amigurumi with no clothes, lol But I will get better, it'll take me some practice. I'm hoping to get a large frog posted soon and he will be wearing these overalls so it will be a good time for me to re-do the video.

      Thank you so much for the donation, that was very generous and I appreciate it very much.
      All the best and of course, happy crocheting!

    2. I'm sure you will understand what I mean when you do look into the video once you get time. Just look at like 7:15 minutes.

      Clothing designer or not, those overalls are adorable! And I did get some made now. My bunny is just too cute. (Might have to keep that one as well, lol.)
      Unfortunately I don't have a facebook account, so I can't post pictures. But it's light grey and I made the top of one ear and one paw white. And the overalls are dark and light blue.

      I'm looking forward to seeing that frog!
      (And now ... off to make a spring dress!) :-)

    1. the overalls fit the large moose but not the small one. I can't you which to use since I haven't done it myself with this pattern but a lighter weight yarn and smaller hook is the way to make things smaller.

  32. Love your design! I can't find the same yarn in store, is there any different yarn I can use to replace it?

    Replies
    1. Thank you!
      Yes, you can use any yarn you want. Be sure to choose the appropriate hook size. Different yarn will result in a different size of the finished amigurumi. Be sure to use the same yarn weight for both the bunny and overalls. Have fun!
