Make a pair of adult or child dungarees

The Waves and Wild Heyday Dungarees pattern combines comfort with a funky sense of style, and very similar to the Lucy and Yak brand.

This is a relaxed fit dungaree/overall. It has tie straps which don’t need undoing in order to take the garment on and off! Choose between button holes or loops. In addition, there are FIVE pockets for hiding all your stuff. They are designed to be long and worn rolled at the ankle. They can be made in almost any fabric, although I would recommend a woven and medium weight one. There are loads of versions to be seen on instagram, some even made of duvet covers.
