To celebrate the release of my latest pattern, the Beachcomber Pinny
, I’m going to run a sew-a-long. I’ve never done one of these before so I’m not entirely sure how they go, but I’m going to give it a go and hope some others join in with the fun.
The BeachComber Pinny is a delightful little pinafore style dress with snaps or buttons at the shoulders and a simple A-line shape. It does however have a point of difference from any other “just another pinafore” It has HUGE POCKETS, and I mean huge, you could seriously collect a whole beach full of shells in them.
It comes in sizes 0-3months right up to size 12 and has some different options that, together with mixing up fabrics you can create some seriously cute dresses.
You can purchase the pattern here
Just check out these tester photos, aren’t they adorable???
It will take place over the 9th-14th May
