Description

Angela Kane’s Pinafore free pattern download was the basis for this project. Real easy and fun to make. Her tutorial made it easy to follow. I added the collar just to give it a bit more character and left out the pockets because it would have been lost in the fabric pattern.

I love this dress because of the comfort and peppermint swirl design.

    This is a lovely colour and looks great with the collar.

    I’ve been planning on making the Angela Kane pinafore – you have inspired me – what a cool dress.

    Love this dress so retro … it recalls the 60s fashion. Adorable!

      Thank you. That 60’s vibe was what I was aiming for. I’m glad you got it.
