Remember when I said that I was going to start adding french knots to everything in sight? Well it turns out that I wasn't far off from the truth because I just couldn't help myself when it came to adding french knots all over my second version of the Roly-Poly Pinafore.
After making one for C, O obviously needed her very own version to rock this summer and I really wanted to emphasize the swoopy lines (yes, that's my technical term) of the back by placing embroidery up and down the outside of each back panel. If I was just a wee bit smarter I would have left off the embroidery where the buttonholes are supposed to go (oops) but I didn't, so instead I just sewed the buttons on so that they're now not functional. Fortunately the pinafore can still be slipped over O's head (whew!).
The fabric is a lilac cotton lawn which has a bit of a shimmer to it and would have been lovely had I not been stretching the hell out of it while putting it in the embroidery hoop. Because I was stretching the hell out of it though I over-stretched the fabric in a couple of places and if you look closely you can see a little bit of wonkiness. I learned my lesson there - be kind to delicate fabric. The lining fabric is cream colored cotton lawn leftover from these shorts.
Oh, and I made this version with pockets because even four year olds know that pockets rock!
And no post would be complete without a picture of the little photo-bomber, right? She was just bound and determined to be in these pictures.
