Pinafore: A Second Summer

I thought it'd be fun to revisit one of my first sewn garments and post about how it's still getting some use! (And to also see how much my daughter has grown in a year.)

This is the pinafore I made last summer for my daughter. It was my first figure-it-out-without-a-pattern garment.
And here she is wearing it last summer as a 1 year old.
It's reversible too. And I love these two fabrics -- both from Joann's. If you look closely, you can see that both sides have a baking theme. My original post on the pinafore is here.

Now, at age 2 (in need of a bang trim), she's wearing it again. It's shorter on her, but still fits (I made the 3T size and so it works on the shoulders/chest area).
Now I know you can buy the pattern and I've uncovered the trick to making the pinafore "work." (For this one here, I handstitched the shoulder seams. I couldn't figure it out otherwise!) I bought the 5T pattern and made one for our little friend Clara. More on that in a future post. :)
