“Based on the one piece long underwear worn for the past century in the America’s, the Union Suit is a classic outfit that is designed for comfort and warmth. It features seamless construction with raglan shaping, a front buttoned opening from neck to gusset, a backside opening with buttoned flap, a roomy gusset, tapered arms and legs & twisted rib cuffs. Approximately 4” (10cm) of positive ease allows for comfort and room to grow.

“When worked in soft wool, the Union Suit is the perfect outfit to wear in cool weather or when camping. The butt flap is functional and eliminates the need to completely undress when rushing to the outhouse.

“The Union Suit is sure to be a favourite go-to garment for all parents and children alike!”*
