    Has anyone come up with alternatives to the tied bows for the popover shoulder straps? They seem to catch on things and knock/rub against the chin at times.

    Lots of options:
    I’m sure @juliamom2009 used fold over elastic.
    Or, you could make long tubes of fabric and then put elastic inside them, like gathered straps.
    My daughter just requested a jumpsuit like that so she doesn’t have to re-tie the bows with every toilet break.

    Or you could just measure the length that you want the armholes to be and cut the bias to that length and sew it into a loop…

    You know, that makes me think, Liesl — I hadn’t thought of how you could actually make the (essentially) bias tape into a loop before sewing it on at all. I was trying to work it out technically in my head — how I could make a loop without having an awkward lumpy seam at the top. Thanks @liesl and @lightningmcstitch!
