The Roly-Poly Pinafore - 3 Ways
*This post was first published at I Seam Stressed*
Today I'm going to show you the first (of what will be many more I'm sure) Roly-Poly Pinafore I made for O.
I'm going to go on a little pattern rave here. I had seen this sweet little pinafore all over blogland and knew that I for sure wanted to try it out for my little miss. I also knew that it was versatile and adorable and sweet and perfect for a little girl and would grow with her and... Ok, enough run on sentence blabbing. And then, in a lucky streak I had, the pattern landed in my inbox from a giveaway I entered. Woohoo!!
I'll just say that this pattern is all of what I said above, but somehow even better in person! I LOVE, love, LOVE it!
My favorite little detail in person is the crossed back and the little v it makes. So absolutely adorbs on a little 2 year old's sweet back.
I made the pinafore using a linen blend fabric for the outer and lined it with a fun floral quilting cotton. Both fabrics I found at Joann Fabrics.
So now for the Pinafore: 3 ways.
So stinkin' cute with just a simple pair of shorts!
More Summer! But a little punky vibe :)
Bright, happy colors for a bright, happy, spunky, SASSY little girl! :)
I so love that this pinafore is loose with out being huge and easily can be worn with another shirt under it. Long sleeves for winter, like this, or even with a short sleeve tee for the cooler summer days or those fall days that still warm up to 80ish.
I totally want to style this with the long sleeves, jeggings and boots too! Just got to find the boots for this ever, growing-out-of-her-shoes-so-fast-mom-can't-keep-up girlie!
So yep. Totally love this pattern. I highly recommend it :) That is 100% my own opinion, just passing on my favorite things to you!
*Big bro was feeling left out of the photo shoot so here ya go* :) Love him!
I hope you stop in at my little piece of blogland and stay awhile and be inspired! I love sharing the things I create for my kiddos there. Stop in tomorrow for sure to see the nitty gritty details about the pinafore and a little tutorial on the patch pockets I added. Hope to see you soon!
