I am busy trying to make some summer clothes for Miss Faye. I came across the cutest pattern. It was so cute that I stopped shopping around and bought it right away.
I also hit the store the next day to pick up fabric so I could start right away!
Once I sat down to start today I realized I need to organize my sewing area. I had a disaster on my hands. Scraps of fabric everywhere and a few projects in various stages of completion just sort of spread out, left me with not much room to work.
Back to my Pinafore....The top is reversible so I picked up some great fabrics to have fun with this pattern.
The pattern came from Sew Sweet Patterns and was a PDF. I printed it out right away and once the boys went to bed I got the pattern taped together and traced onto my swedish tracing paper (I love that stuff).
When ever I make clothes I make a point to pre-wash and dry the fabric to pre-shrink it. It took me all of about an hour to put together the pinafore and wow is it just adorable!
ETA...The finished outfit! I am so in love with it! It is a bit big on her but I did make the 9 -12 month size since it is for summer and it is only April still. I added a ribbon trim around the bottom of the bloomers...the pattern had elastic around the bottom with cute little ties on the sides. I may still add some elastic to see what I think.
