A simple chambray pinafore made from a very old Simplicity pattern (the same as my Pandemonium dress, I cannot find the envelope to get the number :S )

This project has been sitting in my project box for about 4 years (since I was 14, I think). All I had to do was attach the buttons! The fabric frayed a great deal, so I used snaps instead of making buttonholes. I also redid the zipper, because I had done a truly dreadful job all those years ago. It’s really funny, because I remember it was the first zipper I had sewn in all by myself and I was very proud of it :D

    Its adorable on you. Good for you to take on a 4 year old project. I have a hard time with those unfinished projects.
