Sara Dungarees - Sew Over It

The Sara Dungarees are dungarees for people who don’t wear dungarees. However it you’re a dungaree aficionado you’ll love these too!

Grown-up, sophisticated and chic, the Sara Dungarees are great for those of you loving the dungaree craze, but who prefer cleaner lines and sleeker silhouettes.

When Lisa Comfort designed the Sara Dungarees for Sew Over It, 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 which are a brilliant everyday workwear staple, and look fab with a light jumper or smart 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 sized between UK sizes 8-20.
