Dungarees simply don't get any cuter than this, especially with adorable ruffled shoulder straps. Is the cute factor too much for you? Just leave the ruffles off. These dungarees will still be the bees knees – definitely with a thick winter jumper underneath. The waistline pleats give Nola an extra touch of whimsy. The deep, hidden side seam pockets are the perfect place to collect special rocks, giant chestnuts, and other treasures found in nature. This pattern effortlessly grows along with the wearer thanks to the elastic at the back. And to make it even easier, we even got rid of the zip. You know we love you!

Feel like twinning with Nola? Simply sew yourself the Constance dungarees from Fibre Mood's very first issue!

Fabric advice

Nola requires fabric with sufficient body, that can handle active living. Poplin, denim, corduroy, and (checked) wool, are all great options.
