D-33, fit images

A little over halfway finished with the dungarees now.  Should have them done a week from this Tuesday.

Here's some images of my test pair, after they've been washed and dried.

D-33, progress

Here's some more pics of the D-33 contest dungaree.  I've included a few more detail shots, the tag, labels, and my own take on the traditional union label - the Independent Garment Workers of America.  Haven't put the suspender buttons on this pair, but others will have them.

About a quarter finished with the production run.

Ingredients:  10oz Japanese 2x1 denim with white selvedge id, vintage 1940's enameled metal buttons, enameled metal two prong buckle, Italian chambray binding, unbleached 100% cotton thread, black cotton covered poly thread.

Hand-felled seams, with double needle chainstitched topstitching along outseam.  Clean finish fly, no serging.

Reference Collection

An early attempt at homemade footwear. 

Wish I still had that t-shirt.
