Pinafore Dress - Jersey McCalls

Added Dec 28, 2010

Guildford, Unite...






This is a simple pinafore dress I made for winter season, so I could wear it over turtle neck tops, collar shirts and blouses – lots of layers!

This was my first real attempt of sewing with medium-weight jersey, and I loved it. I used the same fabric for the lining of the upper part, and skipped the zipper – since the material is stretchy, I thought I’d get into the dress without the zipper.

The pattern was McCalls, unfortunately as it was borrowed, I don’t have the pattern reference number.

Material Notes

Knitted stretchy fabric (medium weight jersey).

    I love any sewing that allows me to skip a zipper. I really like the subtle pattern on this and the color is perfect for layering and matching.
