So, can a 49 year old wear a pinafore, (apparently not according to my teenage daughter!!)?
No matter, I followed Angela Kane’s free pattern and her video series and made one for myself. No front pockets and by the time I decided to use a topstitch thread, I had already put the back pockets on..oh well.
Yes, it’s denim and a bit dull, but next time (and there will be a next time), I will make it it brighter, nicer fabric.
Added plus: I sewed my first successful lapped zipper :)
Stretch denim with teal-coloured topstitch thread.
