Or, you can make your own. There's a woman selling Twill on ebay and it's really easy to sew.

Folkwear also do a pattern, and evadress do a wide legged trouser pattern that you can add a bib to. (you don't have to make them so tight fitting at the waist.)

Cheers Miss Spitfire :D

I got my dungarees from surplus and outdoors.

http://www.surplusandoutdoors.com/shop/ ... 70304.html

then its just a case of removing the pocket at the front, then using pebble dylon and tea staining for the right colour.

You'll also need to remove the plastic clips and replace with the correct buttons if you want them to look like official issue WLA dungy's, or the metal dungy buttons and fastenings if you are going for the borrowed farm hand look dungy's (that's what i have)

It takes time, but it only came in at about £20 for everything, and i don't care if they get mucky or damaged.

good luck with your impression!

Katie, I am hoping to make a start on a Land Army Kit as well, as I am tired of just doing French Resistance, what shows you planning on going to around here as I am from East Yorkshire too so would love your help.
Many Thanks
Miss Charlie xx

Bit of a necro post, but I just bought a pair these from Surplus and Outdoors, size 48" for my Mrs. They sent a size 30" so I phoned them up and they said send them back and we`ll replace or refund including return postage. So I returned them and checked their website, 48" is no longer available. They refunded the cost of the dungarees after a paypal claim but no refund for the return postage, terrible company to deal with. :evil:

I've found the correct fabric for these, might run a couple of pairs up.

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

Sounds like it could be a new enterprise for us Kate.
