My overalls were big pants with a bib front with a pocket on it and suspenders.
But you could see my shirt.
Coveralls are with sleeves and you put them on over your clothes.

In the land of Oz we don t use the word "coverall .  To us, a coverall is an overall and you can see a nice range of pics here
 
I thnk I did read somewhere what Milmo said so that probably explains it

Helloooo,
 
 Coverall, covers all parts of the body except the head (worn by workers).
 Overall, is the same except that arms and legs are partly covered. (eg. worn by children, teenagers,..).

I wonder why, when someone writes a correct answer - many seem to comment often with the same answer. I find that very confusing!

Here is an image to my answer above.
