A very good customer contacted me about a special dress for her granddaughter’s birthday in October. I sent her a few patterns from which to choose and she selected this one:
I love this dress and have created several of them so I was very pleased with her selection.
The yoke on the pinafore has several tucks in the front. I marked the placement for the tucks with tailor’s chalk.
Then the fabric is folded and pressed on the markings. Next just stitch 1/4 inch from the pressed edge and you have a tuck!
The finished yoke has 4 tucks.
The pinafore buttons completely up the front and looks so lovely over the white dress.
This grandmother has planned way in advance and I am so glad since the child’s birthday is in October, one of my busier months. This outfit should make the little birthday girl very happy.
