Middy Pinny, thankyou Angela Kane.

So, can a 49 year old wear a pinafore, (apparently not according to my teenage daughter!!)?
No matter, I followed Angela Kane’s free pattern and her video series and made one for myself. No front pockets and by the time I decided to use a topstitch thread, I had already put the back pockets on..oh well.
Yes, it’s denim and a bit dull, but next time (and there will be a next time), I will make it it brighter, nicer fabric.
Added plus: I sewed my first successful lapped zipper :)

Material Notes

Stretch denim with teal-coloured topstitch thread.




Fall, Winter

      How lovely to have your Mum over and staying. I am entertaining Mum and my MIL for lunch today as my 2 darlings are providing me with lunch tomorrow and a visit to GOMA (gallery of modern art) for a lecture and tour of their latest exhibition. All the years I dragged them along to art galleries to appreciate art has paid off. My daughter and son are quite artistic so it is a very special time to share with them. Have a lovely time with your Mum and family.

    Of course a 49 year old can wear a pinafore!! Your pinafore looks great Jenny and especially in denim. I am sure it will be so handy this winter and your boots really suit it as well.
