McCall’s Dungarees (Sponsored Post)


After completing this project, I keep wondering why on earth I’ve waited so long to make myself some dungarees. It might be because, in my mind although very comfortable to wear , they would be to boxy and not suit my petite frame at all. Or maybe it was more about finding the right pattern. For me it was the McCalls 7547, which I used for my latest Minerva Blogger Network project.

Just because I am a little rebel at heart and wanted my dungarees to be different and not look like someone can find them in a shop, I made mine using a patterned cotton stretch sateen rather than the classic denim.

Sewing Summary:

Pattern: McCall’s 7547* Close-fitting jeans and overalls have a faux fly front, lapped zipper side opening, patch pocket and leg variations. A, B, C: Carriers. C, D: Purchased overall buckle kit.

Sizing: A5(6-8-10-12-14), E5(14-16-18-20-22)

Fabric: view D – 2 m Lady McElroy’s stretch cotton sateen*

Notions: views C and D: 3 jeans buttons*, 1 set prym dungarees buckle set*, one 7” zipper*

Modifications: I made a combination of view B and D, because I wanted the tapered look of the view B on my dungarees. I chose not to interface the waistband pieces.
