Well done MD! I like those two, and especially the converted overalls. For some time now, I have been musing over the conversion of some bib & brace overalls, probably the "Key" brand from the U.S. I do have some 'Levi' brand skirtalls, but they are not as practical as the keyalls and so conversion of the keyalls looks very likely now. I must learn how to use a sewing machine! As I said, I like the two and, the dragon design is like surfkilts (sorry, tube sarongs) that I have.

The coveralls are key brand, and the dragon print was made from a modified Walmart patern. I made it cause I wanted something loud and light feeling.

That one with the dragon print is outstanding! Top marks!

Were you working from a pattern, and what material is the thing made from?

A Walmart patern, and it's a light cotton print.
My 5 year old has a long sleeve button up in this fabric, I have no idea where or when he got this shirt but I thought it was an awesome print. I was at Wally World aka Walmart and seen a bolt of the same fabric my sons shirt was made from. I went to the pattern section and found a pleasing pattern that reminded me of the macabi I once owned went home got to work and here it is.
