    Thanks macmonika for making and publishing my Pinafore Pattern. It’s a fantastic version. The choice of fabric is just great. I’m sure you have noticed that I am a great fan of cotton with a little stretch.

    As promised, for this you get free membership for a year to my site and all patterns and tutorials. You should receive your log in details.

    Why would anyone want to buy clothes again when they can run up a stunning little number like this for £2?

    I have just made this pattern up in a plain grey fabric for work & love it. My next project is to do it again in a print – looks fantastic
