Dungarees (Roberts Collection) – Marilla Walker

P1000787

I knew that I had to make the Dungarees (View B) of  Marilla Walker’s Roberts Collection after making the Dungaree Dress.

I used a mid-weight and soft denim which has a good drape. I like the front trouser pleats as this adds more shape and the functional pockets are fab.

I was not sure whether dungarees would suit me but I like them more than I thought. Although my husband asked me “where is your paintbrush?”. Yes, this is the ‘overall’ look but I am determined to pull it off and look ‘utility chic’!

I had an issue with the fit of the trousers and had to make quite a few alterations especially taking in the front trouser seam. Though it was my fault in cutting a size 3.

As there is quite a bit of ease in this pattern and there is a little stretch in the denim, I was able to remove all fastenings and this was a real time saver.

The Dungarees are casual and comfortable. Do you like the utility look?

  2. Your husband has that sort of wicked humour. Best ignored
    Exceptionally well made, and as the name suggests, ideal daywear.
    Should stimulate a lot of interest
