Every once in a while a pattern comes along that I just fall in love with....the Patterns by Figgy's Fiona pinafore pattern is one of those!
I had been eyeing it up for a long time, and when I finally caved and went to buy it, I spotted that it was also available as a PDF...yay! Instant gratification!
I printed it all out, traced a size 4/5 and asked the girls about which fabrics they might like...you see, my 3 year old twin girls would really rather not dress like girls...they do however, need at least one dress each, which they can wear to special occasions.
So, anyway, they agreed on some fine navy corduroy, and some fine grey corduroy. For the contrast the agreed on some Liberty for the V&A, which I bought a while ago.
Neither of the fabrics is floral...they appear to be floral, but on close inspection, they are not...so it's kind of win-win! Floral is girly, don't you know!
The dress goes together in a very interesting way...very hard to explain, but I learned several new techniques...never a bad thing!
I used some buttons from my recent buttons buying spree!
I must admit that I love the back nearly as much as the front...not often that happens......
