Simplicity & Korbond Birthday Giveaway!
You will know from watching me on the Great British Sewing Bee that I love dungaree's! I always feel like a little scamp who is likely to get into trouble when wearing them.
Along with dungaree's I love a pinafore or Apron dress.
Still feeling mischievous in them but look a little more feminine than Dunga's!
I wanted to make it up in this awesome crazy floral print fabric that was kindly gifted to me by SewJo after an epic fabric clear out. I don't have many garments with flowers on so I thought i'd go for a change.
It's a super simple in design as it is literally an oversized Apron.
You have a 'normal' apron front but the 'wings' are larger so they wrap around the back turning the apron into an awesome dress.
With the #sewingrevolution in mind I think this is a perfect pattern for a beginner wanting to make a garment for the first time.
I think this dress is also perfect for holidays as you can just pop it on when you want to go to the bar after sunbathing by the pool and want to be a little more covered up. What do you think?
If you can guess how many Vintage Buttons are in my Sewing Pot you will be the winner of a selection of wonderful Simplicity patterns, a Korbond Sewing kit and a Needle Wallet made by yours truly.
