So you may (or may not) have worked out from the crazy pattern that I went for the plaid pinafore. It was exactly the right fabric for that pattern. I nearly got the check matched too but it is tricky when you are cutting on the bias and this is good enough for me.
I had a little play with the free hand on my machine and made these flowers for the embellishment. I wasn't sure if Big Sis would think cream and brown would be girly enough so I went all out on the décor. I think these are great and have so many uses.
Another alteration I made was to use a placket and buttons instead of a zip, only because I didn't have a zip at home and when I am doing something I just have to use my energy to get going not worry about the small stuff.
She loves it and it is fully lined too. I made it a few sizes bigger for when she enters the trashy world of 7-11yr clothes. (My, aren't girls clothes mostly awful!)I am now on the look out for brown leggings and a long sleeved T-shirt.
Hope you likey Jo xxx
