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
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
