A quick and easy Pinafore dress.
This will introduce you to how to read a commercial pattern. How to trace the size you want (which allows you to keep your pattern intact and can therefore be used again for other sizes). Cutting out of fabric and garment construction. Adding facings.Once you have made one you can make more! You are only held back by time and creativity!
