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, we recommend consulting the Finished Measurements chart to achieve your desired fit. 

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Skill level - intermediate.

Fabric suggestions - 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.

Paper vs PDF

If you order a paper copy you will be sent a printed version of our pattern. If you select PDF you are purchasing a digital file. You will be able to download your digital files five times. We recommend that you save your files so that you have them forever. PDF's will include a tiled, an A0 copy shop file and your instructions. The tiled file can be used on any home printer, and is compatible with both A4 and US letter paper. You just need to print out the sheets and stick them together following the guide. Alternatively you can send off the copy shop file to be printed full size; we can usually recommend someone in your area. If you are in the UK we would recommend either The Fold Line or Net Printer. The instructions can either be printed at home or simply follow along on your computer or phone.
