KCWC- Day 5- It worked!!!

I'm feeling just a little bit proud of myself today!


Just look at Scallywag's new dungarees!!!
My alterations to the pattern worked!!!
I LOVE them, (and so does he).

They are fairly roomy, but that means that there is enough room to add extra layers when it gets colder. The only thing that I regret is that I was slightly too enthusiastic when I was chopping off the excess fabric at the bottom. I would've preferred for them to be long enough to have cute little turn ups. That said, there is plenty of room to move the buttons on the straps, so these should definitely last the winter.

Its perhaps difficult to tell from the photos but the fabric is beautiful rust coloured thick corduroy. Maybe not a traditional boys colour, but I have to say that it looks amazing on my wee blondie!
Love the little details- such as fishy buttons!
Now... what shall I make next? Hmmm, decisions decisions...
