As a mum & running a handmade business, I know just how precious time is. That's why I made this practical kids dungarees sewing pattern super easy to use! This is a ready printed paper pattern that will be posted to you. All sizes are drawn separately, so you can skip the tedious tracing and go straight to the fun part... Just cut out the size you need and get making!
The pattern is available in 4 size groups, you can buy 1, 2 or all size groups. The sizes are: • Baby: 0-3M, 3-6M, 6-9M & 9-12M • Toddler: 12-18M, 18-24M & 2-3Y • Little Kids: 3-4Y, 4-5Y, 5-6Y & 6-7Y • Big Kids: 7-8Y, 8-9Y, 9-10Y & 10-11Y
These dungarees are designed to grow along into the next size up- at least! The extended cuffs can be folded over, and the length adjusted with the cross-over straps.

You can use both stretchy jersey fabrics or woven cottons, but you’ll definitely need to use a stretchy material for the waist & cuffs, I find rib knit does a great job!
If you are using a non-stretchy for the main parts, you’ll need to cut the lining of the straps & bib out of a non-stretchy material too, either the same fabric you are using for the main parts, or a different one.
• Main Fabric:
Up to 9-12M:0.45 m (min. width 1.30 m),12-18M to 2-3Y: 0.6 m (min. width 1.5 m), 3-4Y to 6-7Y: 1.0 m (min. width 1.3 m, place bib & pocket in line with trousers for cutting), 7-8Y to 10-11Y: 1.1 m (min. width 1.3 m).
• Cuffs, Waist & Lining:
Up to 9-12M: 0.45 m (min. width 0.45 m), 12-18M to 2-3Y: 0.5 m (min. width 0.5 m), 3-4Y to 6-7Y: 0.6 m (min. width 0.6 m), 7-8Y to 10-11Y: 0.7 m (min. width 0.7 m)

Legal Bit: Designing, drawing and making patterns takes a lot of time and effort... It's not just a hobby, it's my livelihood! I create these grow-along sewing patterns to use in my other line of business, which is (you guessed it!) handmade clothing. You are therefore not allowed to sell items made with this pattern.
