First attempt at dungarees..

Well I said I’d try dungarees next and once I’d said it I had to do it. I roughly traced a pattern from the Sasha Redhead dungarees, and used some stretchy corduroy children’s trousers I’d saved in the fabric stash for just this purpose….and spent about 6 hours on Sunday making these.

I lined the bodice and the straps and made lined pockets so there was a lot of hand finishing. They’re not perfect, I’ll adjust the pattern a bit next time, but overall 😉 I’m chuffed with the result. It could have been a lot worse. The straps are too long, the bib is too big .. but I made them 🙂 !!
