Let the record show that there is no way on God's green Earth that I wasn't going to have a daughter in this life. And this is why.
Girl stuff. Clothing. Jewelry. Pedicures. Lip Gloss.
Let the record also show that this project is one of the easiest sewing projects you will ever do. The button holes are hardest part. I kid you not.
For this pinafore I used some butter yellow European linen and repurposed shower curtain fabric that I scored a little while back. I am madly in love with linen. It's luscious. Watch this. You might love it too.
You can whip up this pinafore in twenty minutes flat if you skip the embroidery. Embroidery takes a little time. But it also makes it extra special.
I plan on making The Bird a slew of these babies. The next one will have rick rack around the edge. I'm planning tuxedo ruffles down the front for another one. If you keep it simple, you can easily make it reversible by adding two flat buttons on each side of the fabric.
You can also sew the buttons on the front panel so the flaps are on top. That looks equally as nice. The pattern fits Amelie at two years as a tunic with room to grow. I'm thinking it will fit for another year or so.
The possibilities are limitless with this pattern. The only thing it can't do is your laundry. Sorry.
For free. Cuz that's how I roll. (Mostly)
