    FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric.

    Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.

    Front: For this style, you can literally raid your scrap fabric stash. All of the pieces are quite small. If you have none, simply buy a selection of 'Fat Quarters' for the front, facing & straps.

    I had a request from my 7yr old Grandaughter for a dress just like her mums with the same Alpaca Fabric. The pattern was easy to find thanks to Pattern Emporiums selection, the fabric was another story but we got there.
    She, loves her Pinny & Bomber jacket to match. Very easy pattern to follow whipped it up in just one hour.
    Now have orders from the other 3 Grandaughters! ❣️

    That is so great to hear that she loves it Wendy!

    I saw another sewist make a girls pinny in a large scale print and it was love at first sight so I had to make my own of course. The instructions are so easy to follow, I have 2 more cut out ready to go.
