I managed to get this little cutie done just in time for Christmas!
I originally intended to make it out of the vintage corduroy that my mother gave me, but I just couldn't bring myself to cut it for an untried pattern. I have been in love with Vintage Dots forever, so when I saw some in corduroy at Hobby Lobby I snatched it up. It's perfect for this little pinafore.
How cute is this little pocket?! Myra has been tucking cars into it all morning. This pattern has a lot of sweet little details, like the pleated, beaded pocket. The hemline has elastic sewn in at the sides, which gives it a sweet shape. All of the seams are topstitched. It isn't obvious, since I used cream thread, but it is a nice touch. The only thing I might change for the next time would be the straps. They're hemmed on all sides, and I think I'd have preferred to make them as loops so there wasn't an underside.
