This was always going to be on the cards after the release of the Emily dungaree dress sewing pattern! Mummy and daughter twinning!!
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.
Both styles have crossed straps at the back.
And navy Frances leggings and ladies leggings!
