Dungaree Dolls by Freddies of Pinewood
Making all my casual land army style dreams come true, these 1940s reproduction dungarees are on high rotation during the cooler months. I would literally wear them every day of the transitional months if I could. They create a beautiful laid back, everyday 40s look, and I always get loads of compliments when out and about – especially from female baristas around Melbourne!
If I was to buy more pairs of Freddies dungarees (hello Home Companions in every colour!), I would definitely size up and READ THE SIZING INFORMATION. Yep, I am a goose. I purchased these in their smallest size after buying two pairs of Vivien of Holloway Katharine trousers and didn’t read the sizing instructions on the Freddies website. If you are familiar with Katharines but have never purchased from Freddies before, please make sure you read their sizing information! These are NOT stretch denim, and the waist to hip ratio is quite a bit smaller than Katharines. You need to look at both the hip and waist measurements, as you will have to physically go through the process of stretching the fabric if you choose a pair that are a bit small (see photos below).
I can’t recommend these highly enough if you’re looking for a more casual 1940s style option in your wardrobe. They are incredibly well-made from high quality, authentic denim and I am desperately wanting to add more Freddies dungarees and jeans to my collection!
Update: I have ordered a new pair of these Dungaree Dolls in a size up – the same size as my Home Companions which fit like a dream – so I get more wear out of them as my body recovers back to its usual size. I will add a second gallery of images featuring the new size to avoid sizing confusion.
