Dalhart, Texas, ...
The Kindergarten class that I work in had a Prairie Picnic last week where everyone got to wear something prairie inspired. I arose to the occasion and made myself a Prairie Dress and apron to wear. I think I could wear this every day it is so comfy.
Dress is a variation of Burda Style 1/2013 blouse #117 extended to ankle length. Without the apron the dress looks just like a Moo-moo. I liked this pattern before I made it a dress but now I don’t think it would look right on me as a top.
Apron is self drafted. I was running out of time and did not want to make fabric ties on apron so I used ribbon instead. I love the result it gave me using ribbon.
cotton fabric, grossgrain ribbon, elastic
