My Mila Dungarees

I actually finished my Mila dungarees a few months ago but am I only just getting chance to write about them. I have been a busy bee studying hard but it has all worth it as I am now a fully qualified Architect! No more studying means more time to get making!

These dungarees were made using the Mila Dungarees pattern by Tilly and the Buttons. The floral stretch denim fabric used was purchased from Sew Loco, a great online fabric shop.

This was the third pattern I had used from Tilly and the Buttons, as with the previous two, the instructions were easy to follow. This garment is the most complicated I have made to date but Tilly’s instructions were great! I enjoyed the challenge and I am hoping to start on some more challenging makes soon – maybe a coat?

I used a light blue thread for top stitching to bring out the hints of blue in the fabric.

The legs are slightly too long  for me as I am quite small but the overall fit is perfect. I still need to take the leg up but I was too excited to wear them, so I haven’t got round to that just yet.

I did make a mistake with the fastenings as I used the jean buttons instead of the buckle buttons for my straps! So my straps are a bit loose! Opps! Apart from that little mishap I am really pleased with how they turned out.

Next time I think I will use a plain fabric to make a more formal pair, which I can wear to work. Fabric ideas needed! I love dungarees so I will definitely be making lots of versions of these.
