In an attempt to fill my wardrobe with more hand made clothing and to make use of my new studio, I have begun a little challenge where I will aim to regularly sew new items of clothing for myself and document them here. My first project was based on Angela Kane's Denim Pinafore pattern found on BurdaStyle.
The fabric was thrifted - just $3 at a local church fete - (totally in keeping with my Summer goal of a wardrobe entirely made up of tribal and tropical prints) and was JUST the right amount for my pattern. This dress is perfect for a tropical getaway and has a concealed zip and large front pockets for storing sunglasses, travel maps and cocktail umbrellas.
