Angela Kane Pinafore - My First Ever Sewing Project

Added Apr 20, 2011

Bhubaneswar, India






I am a total novice to sewing. But with the marvelous help of Angela Kane’s pinafore dress tutorial on youtube, I was able to sew this dress out of a bedsheet. I was not at all confident about sewing, hence I bought a cheap pure cotton bedsheet. It did not have any stretch to it. But I am so full of delight to see the end result. Thank you so much Angela !.

    Hello gowmukhi, I love your version. Colour is the colour of the moment! It may be a bed sheet but it’s beautiful. You have taken the time to do lovely original embroidery as well. I can’t believe it is the first thing you have ever made.

    As promised, anyone making up this pattern and publishing it on BurdaStylel gets a free One Years Subscription to my site. i hope you will find it useful.

    Thank you for making up my pattern.

    Super impressed with your topstitching, especially since this is your first dress. One thing, it looks like the dress would benefit from a hook-and-eye at the top of the zipper, since it starts a little lower than the neckline of the dress.
