I am very behind with blogging my makes lately so first up is my Pinafore dress or Jumper depending on where you live.
Simplicity Jiffy 1252, some of the reviews, and there are not many, for this dress are not very encouraging bemoaning the fit of the dress, but I stuck with it anyway.
I shorted the pattern at the waist and the length, I didn’t use the facing as I fully lined the dress and so managed to squeeze it out of 1 metre of fabric, a half price bargain from John Lewis a couple of years ago. The fabric frays a lot so I added some strips of lightweight interfacing to the seam allowance to strength the side seams.
It does have a weird kind of dart up the front and the neckline is a tad wide, but overall I like it.
I was a bit unsure about this dress at first but now its a great addition to my work wardrobe.
