These #workshopHayley dungarees from @hello.workshop are my current favourite pattern ATM.
I wore these travelling to London and on the way home. So comfy, This was late at night and we left at 6am, as you can see they wear really well.
I made them from a 4oz cotton denim, really soft against the skin. I added pockets this time and I also lined them again, which you can see in a previous post.
Pics were taken back at the hotel, as the star of the weekend was my son, he got all the lights, camera, action! At least it’s not the white door!
I’m planning a drive to Dundee to get more Jumbo cord so I can make another pair, which will be my 3rd, fan girling much 🥰. I love this pattern because, you can make them as they are, or add your own touches and personalise them without too much effort! With the limited amount of sewing time I have, once my husband has cut out the material, the assembly is all straight lines, unless you want to add pockets etc. you could add tabs to the top and completely omit the button holes, they would look like a famous brand. In my opinion they are super stylish, also wheelchair friendly and the fact I can make them in a week, just fills me with joy.
I don’t believe in sewing for the sake of it, that’s why I don’t enter competitions, I tried it and all I did was stress myself out hastily making poor quality garments to win a £20 voucher for more material. Slow sustainable fashion now. I was addicted to clothes shopping and now I’ve nearly completely stopped. It’s not about how fast you go or how many makes you can crank out in a week, for me I’m really refining my style whilst enjoying a newish hobby that helps with my various illnesses. I am so thankful to be able to do this, and to have met some lovely people to boot!
Who else is excited to make a start on their Autumn/Winter wardrobe? What are you all making?
