A couple weeks ago, I went shopping online at LemonTree Studio. Beautiful stuff here! I bought this pinafore and was so delighted with it, that I thought I'd try to make one myself from fabrics I had in my stash.
I didn't have a pattern. Basically, I laid out the pinafore I bought on a piece of paper and traced the parts. Then I messed with it a bit, trying to figure out to put the parts. Well, it took some time, but I finally got it to work (not exactly in the way the original pinafore was made--there was some extra hand-stitching at the shoulders involved--but it works anyway). And it's reversible!
I'm definitely going to make another one -- or two. And I'm sure it'll go quicker and smoother the next time, now that I have some practice under my belt. I think this pinafore is just so dang cute. It makes me smile when my daughter has it on. :)
