On the Farm© Printed Dungaree Dress

Saturday, July 23, 2016
Hi everyone!

How are we all? I have another DIY to show you. I wanted to create a dungaree dress/ pinafore from my cute On the Farm© Printed Fabric.

I added some inspiration pictures to a Pinterest board which you can see HERE.

I decided on a pleated skirt, with a simple square front and pocket, and cross over straps. I used this easy tutorial from Dare to DIY as a guide for my skirt. I had to do it as a front and back piece as I wanted 3 full pleats on each side.

I put as invisible zip in one side and attached a front panel to the waistband of the front piece. I then measured and made two straps and crossed them over and attached to the back waistband. I should have put the cross over straps a bit closer together, but I only learnt that after wearing it.

Yes I know one of my straps is back to front! I only realised when I'd downloaded the pictures!

I joined both side seams together and channel stitched the waistband inside. I was really happy with this preppy look and I love wearing it. You'll definitely see me rocking this outfit at The Handmade Fair in September!

You can buy my Half Panama Printed Fabrics HERE. If you've got any fun ideas you want me to try let me know!

Hope you like seeing these.

Happy Handmade.
