underbust pinafore dress

Halle, Germany






I went through the major tutorial list on threadbanger and found this cute How-To by MaxCalifornia

That was the style I was looking for <3
I went to the dutch fabric market and bought 4 or 5 different fabrics only to make this dress, or alter the design to a high waisted skirts.

Finally I sat down last night and was finished at 3 am…
I’m actually thrilled, with how cute it looks -

the hem is a product from my new serger (I used pink, violet and red threads, I think it creates a nice effect)

the pleats were created through MyCalifornia’s “easy gathering” method ^^
I love how it turned out

Material Notes

bright purpur/hot pink cotton
violet zipper




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual, Romantic, Vintage

    This is great because I’ve never been able to make a dress but this seems simple enough, and it’s cute enough that I’ll actually take the time to do it. :D

    Oooh I love this! It looks like quite a simple thing to make, I guess its just a skirt with straps! I may have to have a go. So many projects to finish!

      Yeah I had a browse through the tutorial and it seems easy enough and with room for alternations. I’ve just been reunited with my sewing machine after two whole months apart so this is what I shall be working on!!
