I really love pinafores. I really do. Are they back in fashion yet because I would wear one all the time if I could. Well, until they come back in fashion I will just have to dress Lil in them and live my pinafore fetish through her! Thank goodness I got a little girl!
So this week I spent a few days drafting and designing a cute little pinafore pattern to make a dress for Lil. I didn't want to use "good" fabric yet, incase it didn't work out! So I used some left over fabric I had in my stash from the cushions on our couch (she blends in very well with the decor in the loungeroom now!)
Anyway, it worked out okay. I guess I am more critical than the average viewer - you know how you always pick faults in your own work? I still need to make a few modifications...shorten the straps and bring in the sides a little, but its not bad for my first effort! If I leave it as it is, she will probably grow into it though.
