Bjorn's Overalls

As I've been working on Bjorn's outfit from 1975 for my doll, I noticed something interesting about Bjorn's overalls that he wears.

We all know that Bjorn's outfit is an orange striped shirt with a pair of white overalls.  The overalls seem to made of a satin, and on this picture below, Bjorn's pants have some silver detailing to them, (three on one leg and two on the other... okay... xD ), and they also appear to be quite short.
Bjorn's overalla also have silver details around the top.  (You can really see the satin on this picture. :) )
In this picture, Bjorn's wearing that outfit again.  Except there seems to be something different.  The front panel has the same detailing, but the pants have two layers to them, and are quite long.  Plus the silver details at the bottom look more like a fringe.
The straps of the overalls seem to be a bit wider as well.
At first I never noticed the difference, but not it seems quite clear that Bjorn has two different overalls.  Seeing as the design at the front of both the overalls is the same, I'm thinking that Owe Sandstrom reused the same front panel and just swapped out the straps and the pants, but it could also be that he remade the whole thing, which I understand since I remake things all the time, haha.
I also noticed that in this picture where Bjorn is wearing the same overalls but a different top, Bjorn's pants don't seem to be a satin anymore.  The top of the overalls looks satin, but the pants seem to be made of a more slinkier fabric that has a shine to it, but it's not satin.

Now I don't know if I was the first to notice this or I just never noticed until now, but I hope you enjoyed this quick blog post. :)
