I love dungarees. Alas most are very ‘old Macdonald’: too large and ill-fitting. Or maternity style and equally large and ill-fitting. Thank you Knipmode for this pattern of relatively skinny dungarees!!! I wanted sleek urban dungarees, I opted for a dark denim in a cold hue, and with a bit of stretch, and fluo tangerine thread. Never mind my bad posing or weird stance trying to hide my O-legs. Or the poor winter sunlight forcing overexposure in photoshop.
I further altered the pattern a bit: the front bib is narrower to align with pockets, the front pocket smaller to fit a mobile. I skipped some decorative stitching and streamlined the back straps.
Thanks to the embroidery function of my sewing machine I could make some funky pockets.
… and they match my beloved Vans.
I’m so pleased with them but aaaarghhhhh when sewing jeans mistakes are unforgiveable. Trousers were done, I happily banged the riveted hip buttons THE WRONG WAY ROUND. You can’t unstitch a riveted button. You have to open all the dubble stitched seams and replace the whole part.
