I’ve decided that I would like to learn sewing and this is the first garment that I have completed. I’ve updated it with a better final press ;)
I used Angela Kane’s pinafore pattern and did the version without pockets. It was quite simple to create and the videos were a great guide (and easy to follow as well!) I reckon it looks great as well!
I made this out of unbleached cotton calico (inexpensive material in case I messed up) and later dyed it with black Rit dye. It turned out a lilac ecru grey sort of colour which I actually prefer over black :P
Overall I’m very happy with this. I am hoping to make this once again (hopefully it will look even better as I gain experience). It is easy to make and looks great.
