Pattern Description: From the designer's website: "This sewing pattern contains comprehensive instructions and step by step directions for the a reversible ruffled pinafore ranging in size from 3 months through 3T. This pattern contains meticulous instructions, pattern pieces, diagrams, and photos to make your job simple. The reversible ruffled pinafore pattern teaches you to make a reversible/ lined ruffled pinafore and the pattern includes the option to make a matching pinafore for your daughter’s 18″ doll."
Pattern Sizing: 3months-3T. I made 3-6 months
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes (with the exception of the closure modification I made)
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, although I did not follow the instructions for sewing the inner and outer fabrics together.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It is cute and lends itself to many variations with the use of appliques, fabrics and embroidery.
Fabric Used: Cotton. I believe the crab fabric is Fabric Finders and I am pretty sure the dots are Michael Miller.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Since my daughter is not yet independently sitting, I thought the bow would be uncomfortable for her when on her back. I eliminated the bow closure and overlapped the two back pieces closing with a button. Additionally, I used a different method for sewing together the inner and outer fabrics.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I have actually sewn this garment three times now.
Conclusion: A great little top. I have more pictures on my craft blog if interested.
