Overalls

In years past, it seemed like all varieties of children wore overalls (with long legs) or shortalls (with short legs). Some children wore their shoulder-buttoning cousins, the longall and the jonjon (respectively). Some little girls even had shoulder-tied rompers. This is a poll to see who remembers wearing them - and how they wore them.
