A traditional pair of easy fitting dungarees. A hard-working wardrobe staple featuring classic detailing and optional top stitching. These dungarees are meant to be oversized, for example my measurements put me at a 12 – 14, but I went for the 12 and can still fit a jumper underneath.
Skill level – intermediate.
This is a printed pattern including sizes 6 – 18. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.
Suggested fabrics – medium weight woven cloth, 8 – 11 oz denim, cotton canvas, cotton drill, corduroy, yarn dyed linen. If you are using a thick fabric you may decide to cut the waistband and button fly pieces out of a thinner fabric to reduce bulk.
You will need:
1 x Matching thread
1 x Contrasting thread (Optional. We used Gutermann ‘extra strong’)
2 x 40mm dungaree clips
2 x 40mm adjustable sliders
6 x 15mm hammer on buttons (or sew on buttons)
0.5M of lining fabric for pocket, fly and waist facing. If you fabric is light to medium weight you could use ‘self’ fabric for the fly and waist facing.
