Dungaree skirt

Post by RichardA »

I have always wanted a dungaree skirt ever since I bought dungaree shorts which I like wearing.
With the skirt or should I say dress as it is a bit in between the two and fitted me perfectly all ways a bit chancy when buying off ebay as some don't know how to read a rule properly and the sizes can be all wrong.

Looks right cool Richard. I haven't seen bib overalls in a long time let alone bib skirts and shorts.

Skirt on!

Yes, I think the skirt-overalls look better, more a complementary and balanced shape.
I have looked at them for wearing when doing stonemasonry for in hot weather; one could wear a very light shirt under it.

I know them as dungaree dresses. I have two black ones from asda. I have a picture of one but the contrast is terrible. Very comfy with no waistband to worry over.

The dungaree skirt looks better - it just looks better quality somehow. The advantage of the skirt garment is that you can adjust the shoulder straps to raise the top of the bib. Try doing that with the shorts garment and you could end up speaking in a high squeaky voice. :lol:

The shorts version looks too tight round the crotch and the legs to be comfortable. The skirted version looks much better. Neater too.
Keep on skirting,

The dungaree skirt looks much better and ideal for doing work around the house.

Looks good, but too short for me.

Ooooh! I like the skirt! I'd like mine to be just a tad bit longer, maybe just about the knee and a little fuller so when I sit I don't have to worry about people across of me looking between my legs. I saw a woman in our of the stores I work in wearing something similar, but it was down to the ankle, and almost white. But it was a denim like fabric and had the "overall" straps above. I tried, unsuccessfully to find one as I thought it was a cool skirt/dress/whatever it is..... :eye:
