Vintage style Dungarees

Here we go again for a new sewing post, a – kind of – vintage outfit! What do you want, this is what I like the most! This time, this project completely not planned this way. I’ll tell you why now : I bought this chambray fabric as I just love dots chambray. I already used two different fabric like this from Les Trouvailles d’Amandine (you can the posts here and there) so I had to buy a new one . As the delivery from France is quite pricey, I went for a Robert Kaufman fabric : Sadly, when I went to Toronto, The Workroom didn’t have this one in stock, so I had to order online. I found it on fabric.com (man they have so much choices on this website it’s insane) and I received it really quickly as usual. I actually planned to make a dress with long sleeves at first. So I choose the Emery dress but with a circle skirt I self-drafted. Sadly, I really didn’t like the result. I’m not sure of the style of this fabric for a full dress. Anyway, I had to find an other way to use this fabric. And I remember that I pinned on my pinterest board some dungarees.

Hiiiiiii Why not make a dungarees then !!!! I used my circle skirt as planned but took off the top of the dress. I didn’t have enough fabric for a new top so I unstitched the old one. Took off the darts and the sleeves to -hopefully- find a way to work on something with it. I self-drafted the top of my dungarees and had just enough fabric to make it ! Yay! I used inside biais to finish the skirt and make an illusion of a belt (you could had one too if you wanted) and I did the same with the top on each side.

I haven’t used the normal dungarees buckles you could require as I didn’t have that in my stash, but went for small snaps. Even if it is not at all what I planned to make at first, I’m so so pleased with the result! The top of the dungarees could seem a bit large as I took my measurement in the idea of wearing a jumper under. I think that I’ll make it a bit smaller next time as I could actually wear it with only a tee-shirt. I think circle skirt are really my favorite type of all! Be ready to see a lot on here! The fabric is really nice and good quality for the price. It doesn’t look at all like Amandine’s chambray but worth a try. A lot of people used it for Archer shirt (Grainline studio) wich is a good idea I think, but less for Cambie dress for example. 

I’ll make a DIY post on how to make this easy type of dungarees very soon so if you’re feeling like having that type of vintage outfit, you’ll be able to! Anyway, I wish you a nice week-end to and I hope you enjoyed this post!

    Wouah, c’est une très belle réalisation et belle idée cette salopette. Je n’ai toujours pas réalisée de jupe cercle. je ne sais pas si cela m’irait. Il faudrait que je trouve un patron type. Je crois que tu l’as indiqué d’ailleurs dans l’un de tes articles, il faudra que je recherche quand j’aurai récupéré ma MAC. elle est de nouveau en panne et chez Pfaff, ils sont débordés en ce moment alors je sens que je vais attendre au moins 2-3 semaines pfff, en attendant je fais du cartonnage et des petites croix. Bon week-end.
