Dungaree downloads

My earlier post about toddler dungarees with free pattern turned out to have been well-timed, as a week later episode 4 of The Great British Sewing Bee featured a challenge making kids dungarees. The Sewing Directory  then included my tutorial in their article about the show, directing a fair bit of traffic in my direction. WordPress stats lets you know how many people download something (which turns out to have been a lot), but of course it can’t tell you how many people end up using it. As it always turns out being much more work than you think converting a self-drafted pattern into something that will print on A4 and that other people can understand  I was delighted when Kay sent me some pictures of a pair of the dungarees she made for her son in a cute bug jar print fabric.

This lovely version in printed denim (with matching apple buttons!) was made by Indre in Germany

If anyone else uses the pattern please let me know as I’d love to see pictures.
