i was having a look through my old burda mags the other day, i bought loads on ebay!!! and came across this pinafore dress and matching jacket! it looked like nothing made up but the line drawing made me think hummmmm i could make this and omit the blouse for a modern take!! the fabric i choose was lovely, its black and cream with a gold embossed flower on it. i’ll make one in plain fabric one day to show of all the lovely dart detail on both dress and jacket as you can’t see it to much on the patterned fabric. i loved wearing this x
heavy knitted black jersey for the lining
