Introducing the newest pattern from Kitschy Coo - the Penny Pinafore!! This is a beautifully designed dress (also available in tunic and mindress lengths) with shapely princess seaming, perfect for color and print blocking.
My fabric for this dress is a combination of two double knits. The solid black is Sophia double knit from Vogue Fabrics. This stuff is the cadillac of double knits - soft and drapey but sturdy and with great recovery. The print I used for the center panels is a Maggy London double knit from FabricMart. It's just as nice as the Sophia, although it doesn't have quite as much stretch. The print is super cool though. It reminds me of the Matrix.
The skirt in the dress length is nice and swirly. Amanda has designed this pattern brilliantly, with separate cutting lines at the hip for the tunic and dress lengths, which gives you a sleek, fitted look for your tunic and a nice A-line skirt for your dress and minidress.
I cannot get over how beautifully this pattern glides over my curves in back. Mitch spent all morning telling me how much he loves the way this dress fits. Win!
I've already made a few *ahem* so you'll be seeing more before the week is out. What are you waiting for! Go get yours! It's available here as an easy to download and assemble PDF!
