Remember these dungarees from nearly two years ago? Well, I eventually figured out that they were a pain to go to the bathroom in. So I chopped them in half and made the legs into pants, and the top half….
….into a pinafore dress a few weeks ago!
I re-used the tie, made the bodice longer, added belt loops with leftover fabric, and added a pleated skirt.
Obviously, it has pockets. I would have liked to have had green linen pockets, but I didn’t have enough green linen left, so I used other scraps instead.
It does swoosh quite well, I must say. I pleated the entire width of this fabric into the bodice for maximum volume.
I do wish now that I had purchased more of the skirt fabric, because it is so nice! I’m really happy I managed to completely upcycle those dungarees, too.
I’ve been wearing this a lot recently as the weather has heated up significantly and pants, much as I love them, are uncomfortable in extreme heat. I think this brings me up to three skirted items I’ve made? Which is more than I thought I’d make! And I’ve got (possibly) two more in the works….
Anyways, see ya!
