For adventurous outdoor play, these simple, functional overalls keep children dry and comfortable, whatever the weather.  Designed to be pulled on over clothing, Rainhaven Overalls let kids be kids, freely immersing themselves in nature play, with no worries about keeping clothes clean. 

The pattern includes optional features such as elastic stirrups to keep pant legs in place, a chest pocket, and knee and seat patches that can be combined to make them your own.

Sew them in waterproof fabric for rainy day adventures, or in a sturdy fabric such as canvas for every-day rough-and-tumble play.  


 

Skill level: adventurous beginner

The Rainhaven Overalls feature:

  • Shaped bib for comfort and great coverage
  • Adjustable shoulder straps with buckles
  • Knee and seat patches for extra durability (optional)
  • Bib pocket (optional)
  • Stirrups to hold pant legs in place (optional)
  • Side snaps for trim fit (optional)
  • Seam-sealing tutorial

Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with upcycled fabrics. Look to large raincoats to upcycle into smaller garments.  Re-use hardware such as buckles, toggles, sliders from old raingear or backpacks.

Awesome

I had been looking for such a suit for a while and than I found this one. It is awesome! The instructions are very clear, there’s a lot more info to find on the website and the fit is also really good. My daughter loves the suit and had so much fun in the snow! My son was already jealous I didn’t make him one (bought the kids pattern which he had outgrown). I highly recommend this pattern.

Very popular

All my friends want to have these great rainsuits for their children. I made at least 10 already! Great pattern to have.

Surprisingly straightforward

I followed the instructions and TaaDaa! I was very pleased with the result and so was my Grandson. If they are made of yellow ripstop nylon they look like Firemen’s trousers - when you are 5 yrs old that is very important!

Perfect alfresco wear

These overalls are perfect for the transition from crawling to walking, the knee & seat patches provide extra protection. I started with a pair for my nephew and his five year old sister. Due to the current situation they spend a a lot of time outside & the Rainhavens keep them dry, warm & clean!
I have made three more sets (sizes 4, 7 & 8) using ripstop, the pattern is very well designed with excellent instructions and I love links for extra support.

So easy and useful!

These were so easy to put together, the sizing chart, pattern and instructions made it a snap to get exactly what I needed and put it all together. I've made a pair out of PUL (dinosaurs) and a pair from vinyl backed canvas (blue) and both are comfortable, functional and my kids love them. Forest preschool needed sturdy waterproof pants, and the idea of paying big bucks to buy them didn't appeal when I had perfect waterproof fabric locally available. This is a project anyone with a sewing machine and some clips can take on in a few hours. Start to finish these probably only took about 4 hours, and the majority of that time was painstakingly lining up my knee and butt patches to make sure everything was perfect. :) I can't recommend this pattern highly enough.

One of my favourite projects so far

This project was so fun. It's an excellent pattern and so simple to make. I used waxed cotton from Merchant and Mills (UK). It was the first time I had ever used a fabric like this and it was really easy to sew. I think this has been one of my favourite twig and tale projects so far. Can't wait to make the hat now....and just waiting for T&T to do a raincoat as well because these overalls aren't really me😄.... We played in the rain and my little girl stayed dry but I was soaked 🤣can't wait to try them in the snow as well.
