Simplicity 4712 – FO 4 & 5/2011

I’ve given up waiting for good light to photograph these little pinafores, so please excuse the slightly weird pics.

Both are made from this pattern:

It’s such a simple pattern which makes up in no time at all.

I’m sure you’ll recognise that the navy dress is the last of the nasty polyester. The pink is a piece of floral corduroy given to me by Himmelbjerget.

Both dresses have a straightforward lapped zipper at the centre back:

with armhole and neckline facings which you can just see peeping out on this picture.

The navy dress has a ribbon faced hem just because I could:

and the pink hem has the best top-stitching I have ever achieved.  I’m mighty chuffed with it:

I’ve fiddled with the exposure here to show the stitching

The stash gets smaller!

    Very cute, about to try my own couple, making them for a friends daughter, I have 2 boys *cry*, Im going to attempt some alterations to the pattern so I hope they turn out alright. Thanks for posting photos so we can see how the pattern comes out, and in my case where I will make the changes.

      There’s a definate shortage of adorable patterns for small boys out there, so I feel your pain.

      Would love to see your versions.
