Kitschy Coo Penny Pinafore
made with Girl Charlee Fabrics
I love this dress! It took me longer to assemble the PDF pattern and trace it than it did to sew it up! The instructions for this pattern are so well written. If you are new to sewing knits, you can definitely jump right in and learn how to do it with this pattern. I especially like how well-fitting the neckband is.
I see some wrinkles at the back, so I guess that means I need to learn how to make a swayback adjustment. I got Nancy Zieman's Pattern Fitting book for Christmas, and I feel confident I can do this now. That will be my next sewing goal for myself to get this dress pattern to fit me better. I will definitely be making this again and again! I like that the pattern comes in tunic, mini, or knee length. This is the mini length on me.
I had seen this pattern on other blogs, and everyone had such nice results with it. The selling point for me though was the fact that I could also purchase the pattern in a size for my girls.
