Teal-pinafore-wr_large

Description

Teal blue 1940s pinafore from a vintage pattern: Marion Martin #9121. I was inspired to make this after seeing the movie Penelope. In the first scene that you meet Penelope she is wearing a lovely pinafore over a striped long-sleeve knit top.

The dress is originally in 2 pieces but I changed the pattern so it would be one piece.

Blogged here: the fabled needle. (Sorry, ever since I moved URLs, many images from old posts got messed up but the text is still there.)

(I had this project up in my old account, loveliette.)

    This dress is so pretty, and the fabric is great! I love the addition of the ribbon around the hem too. Nice work!
