I made the Emily and Mary dungaree dress patterns from my range of patterns in a fine stretch terracotta needle cord. The fabric is really easy to work with and very comfortable to wear. It is heavy enough to hold its shape without being to boardy. As both styles have an A-line skirt this works quite nicely.

Both dungaree dress sewing patterns are aimed at beginners. There is little fitting needed and the straps can always be adjusted for final tweaks on fit.

The dungaree dress patterns have some differences. The Emily which is the ladies dungaree dress sewing pattern offers two lengths, optional centre front and back seams as well as pocket options. The Mary dress includes classic dungaree denim styled pockets.

Both dungaree dresses are finished using dungaree clasps or buttons. I chose to go for classic denim styling for these dresses so both are finished with silver colour clasps and hammer in buttons.

The Emily dungaree dress has a large curved bib pocket or hip height shaped patch pockets. There is an option to include back patch pockets too. I have tutorials on my blog and also You Tube channel for applying neat curved pockets with some tips for avoiding angled edges.

The bib pocket on the Mary dungaree dress is angular so even easier to apply.

I was about 6 or 7 years old when I had my first go on a sewing machine, it was an old hand crank machine that my mum used with her patients, she was an occupational therapist. I still vividly remember watching with amazement as the tiny perfectly formed stitches were created as I turned the handle. I Grew up in the 70’s and 80’s when buying clothes was less affordable and dressmaking was an answer to updating your wardrobe more regularly.
