Cape Town, South...
I’ve been wanting a pinafore dress for ages and kept seeing them everywhere on etsy and BurdaStyle and streeet fashion blogs… but no real patterns for grown ladies with a modicum of boob. so I whipped up a pattern using gasp maths and my measurements, and about 3 hours later (I’m still amazed) it was ready!
okay, I’m lying a bit, i still had to hem it but i did that the next day and it took about 20 minutes!
If anyone is interested I’ll come up with an instruction thingy for how I did it- super-easy!
slightly stretchy floral cotton, metal button for covering, apple cotton fabric.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
