More Vintage, Baby

Far too cute not to sew again.
I think these dungarees remain my favourite thing ever!
Warm, machine washable wool, Trixie utterly flogged them and then they were sent off to Baby Ock du Spock.
I tracked down a larger size, internationally and made an almost identical pair.
 I lined them with lawn again, for comfort and used  Liberty for the facings.
I used coral lawn and slightly different buttons.
But the cute factor is still through the roof!
Essential pockets lined with Liberty.
Zipper up the back for speedy dressing.
I sewed Beatrix the size 2 (I have a tracing of the size 1 thanks to the lovely Ock du Spock) and they fit, just, but not for long.
Hopefully they will get through Winter, at least  with a disposable nappy.
