Kitschy Coo Penny Pinafore, in the Jungle!

It is with great sadness that I submit my final make for Jungle January.
It would probably not surprise you to know that this is absolutely my favorite themed sewalong. I'm so grateful that Anne is willing to be our valiant leader.
For my coup de grace the month, I used my absolute favorite pattern, the Penny Pinafore by Kitschy Coo.
For this version, I used ponte knit in an ocelot print for the front and sleeves, and black ponte for the side panels and bands. I just love the way this looks colorblocked.
Looks great from the back too. Isn't that a fun print? I'm so glad I bought a lot of it. You'll see it again.
And so I bid adieu to that month of fabulousness that is Jungle January. But fear not! We love the jungle around here. It doesn't ever truly leave us. Just hibernates for a little while.

  4. The color-blocked top is so flattering on you. Looking forward to seeing what else you make with that print, too! I know it will be amazing.

  5. Katie you WIN at Jungle January. Maybe we should have a Jungle June so that we can have more animal print fun.

  7. You've had the best Jungle January makes! I love this one too! I almost made the same shirt with the same ocelot fabric. I ended up making a color blocked skirt with it instead (I'm trying to get it hemmed before tomorrow). Now I have to see if I have enough of the ocelot left to make a Penny Pinafore.

  22. Aw, thanks Katie! The cuffs were supposed to be in the teal fabric but since it was eeeevil, the zebra print fabric came in handy.
