Old schoolApril 28, 2011
I made this little pinafore for Isabella last night. The fabric reminds me of the winter tunic I used to wear in primary school!
I used the "Tropical blend" pattern from the latest Ottobre magazine but adapted the hemline and added the bias binding.
We took some photos this morning. I enticed Isabella outside to look at the mist...but she decided it was called mischief and kept saying, "Look at the mischief!"
Most of my photos looked like the one above, a regular game of running away from Mummy!
Isabella loves the dress as she loves anything with pockets. These have a bit of novelty factor too as they are circle shaped. I am looking forward to making a few more winter items for the girls' wardrobe. I have made a sweet corduroy dress for Juliette but I can't post it yet because it is for her first birthday next week - time is flying by!
Fabric - 70 cm wool/viscose blend (from Spotlight), 40 cm printed cotton
Pattern - Tropical blend dress from Ottobre 3/2011
Bits and bobs - 2 covering buttons
