I finally finished up some of the projects that I've been working on--I don't know why I've been lagging so much with regards to finishing these. I still have four more pinafores, each needs just a little more to be done and they are still sitting in a pile by the sewing machine. I think I'll fall back on my usual stand by and blame the weather.
Ever since I bought the brown print I've been playing around with an idea for smocks like these, something I saw in an illustration in an old children's books. The pattern is from ISBN 9784579109968. I adapted it to have a gathered neckline that buttoned in back, rather than elastic, and added the collar using a vintage pattern.
My fabric arrived from Hip Fabric and it's just as lovely as the images online
Ivy however has politely informed me that flowers really aren't her style anymore, she prefers fabric with animals on it. So I've been looking through my stash to see what I can use for spring clothing
