The Ladies’ Heyday Dungarees pattern combines comfort with a funky sense of style.
This is a relaxed fit dungaree/overall. It has tie straps which don’t need undoing in order to take the garment on and off! Choose between button holes or loops. In addition, there are FIVE pockets for hiding all your stuff. They are designed to be long and worn rolled at the ankle.
An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish, but importantly, a regular sewing machine is all you need for all options.
This pattern includes twelve sizes, from XXS up to 7XL. There is a matching child pattern available.
The Ladies’ Heyday Dungarees pattern is designed for medium weight, soft, woven fabrics such as corduroy, denim, linen and twill.
This is an intermediate level pattern. The actual construction of the dungarees is very simple, but you need to be comfortable sewing through multiple layers of thick fabric.

One of the most fabulous patterns I have made.
Have multiple pairs of these and everyone is wearable, adaptable and look awesome on.
I get so many compliments and I look forward to making many more.

Surprised myself at how quickly these sewed up. Gifted to my nephew’s partner expecting their second baby. She loves how comfortable they are and lots of room for bump! (She is very petit and I sized up)
Such a lovely pattern! I’ve gifted a pair of linen HeyDay Dungas to two friends and they have absolutely loved them. Enjoyed sewing a little lining in each pocket to match the inner lining and make them special and unique. Will deffo make myself one or two linen before Spring rolls round again. But now looking forward to a warmer pair for the winter. Thanks!

Fantastic pattern!! I loved sewing these up! They are a surprisingly quick sew – largely due to the fantastic instructions. I cannot recommend waves and wild patterns enough for adding confidence to your sewing! I’ve had endless compliments on my heydays!

I can quite honestly say that these are the most comfortable things to wear & very easy to put together. I made them in a soft black linen as I was playing it safe as I wasn’t sure about dungarees for myself but bought them when they were on offer & thought I’d give them a go. I love the result & they came together really easily with no issues of fitting.
Thanks for a great pattern

These dungarees (overalls here in the US) are just fantastic! I made a lightweigh pair as shorts for summer and a denim pair full length for anytime and anywhere. It’s easy to fit the pattern to a body that shifts between sizes. The instructions are great and simple to follow. I intend to make more of these for myself and possibly family, too!

Could write lots of excellent things about these dungarees but all I’m gonna say is ‘just make them’’ you won’t be disappointed the pattern is well drafted and a pleasure to make and wear.

The most comfortable dungarees you’ll ever wear, and the easiest to make.

I just finished my first pair of these and they fit great and are so comfy. I love that I could print just the size I needed too! Well written and easy to follow. I am about to start another pair!
