Pinafore dresses for Miss M


I remember when my girls were little that a pinafore dress was a quick easy way for winter dressing.  Tights, a skivvy and a pinafore.  Last winter I made some pinafores for my granddaughter and she got much use out of them.  I thought I would make some new ones for this winter, this time in a size 3, as some growing has happened in a year. 🙂

The pattern is very easy and the three pinafores were made in a day.

Different buttons needed

Didn’t really have suitable buttons so my daughter can change these.


The fabric for this pinafore had issues – ie the black ran when it was washed even though it was washed in cold water.  You can see it if you look closely.

      I had forgotten how simple they were to make.
      Thanks Kate.

  2. Yet again, I’m very impressed by your creative efforts. I love the materials you’ve used and those owl buttons are delightful. What a pity about the black running in that second one though, such a beautiful little dress.

      Thank you Lorna. I enjoy sewing for little ones, not so keen on sewing for myself.

      Thank you. I love the buttons. I have four left to use on something else.

      Thank you. I usually have lots of buttons but often I don’t have the buttons I need for a particular project. 🙂 This time the owl buttons were just right for this pinafore.
