The Sara Dungarees are dungarees for people who don’t wear dungarees. (Though if you’re a dungaree aficionado you’ll love these too!) Grown-up, sophisticated and chic, they are great for those of you loving the dungaree craze, but who prefer cleaner lines and sleeker silhouettes.
When Lisa designed the Sara Dungarees she wanted them to be minimal in style, so the fuss-free bib features no front fastenings, topstitching or bib pockets. Instead, the straps neatly fasten at the back waist with buttons, with the waistband hitting the natural waist. They open at the side seam with an invisible zip and are shaped with darts at the back. The legs flare very slightly to an on-trend, flattering bootcut.
With two options, you can also choose to make just the trousers. An everyday workwear staple, the trousers look great with a light jumper or smart blouse, such as the Pussy Bow Blouse.
The Sara Dungarees have loads of hacking potential. Widen or taper the legs depending on your style, or attach the bib to the skirt of your choice for a modern pinafore dress!
The Sara Dungarees is an intermediate level pattern. The construction itself is not too tricky, but we recommend you have some experience of fitting trousers.
We recommend medium weight woven fabrics with lots of drape, such as triple crepe, rio crepe, twill crepe and certain wool suitings. For inspiration and to find the perfect fabric, have a look at our specially curated suggestions.
The Sara Dungarees is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
