Roly-Poly Pinafore Blog Tour & a Giveaway!

hello hello hello!

i am so happy to be a part of the Roly-Poly Pinafore blog tour and i am very excited that my dear friend Rachael is letting me give this pattern away to one of you today! it is such a great pattern, you should be very excited! 

i am not an accomplished clothing maker by any stretch of the imagination but this pattern was E.A.S.Y Peasy!  Rachael does an amazing job of explaining each step and the pattern itself only has a few pieces so its very easy to put together.  

BUT, never fear, if you are a beginning clothing maker like me and get a little confused about adding the pockets (which are totally awesome and extremely useful for all the beautiful rocks that you find while playing in the park.) Rachael has amazing customer support and she will answer any question...

no matter how stupid! 
believe me!  
i know, from experience!

the pattern offers sizes 6m-10.  my little angel here usually wears a size 5 but because she is rather thin i measured her and she measured at a 2 in the chest and a 3 in length.  so we went with the 3 and it fits her perfectly.

im planning on measuring myself and hopefully i could squeeze myself into the size 10...  i have my fingers crossed...  

she loooooooooooooooooooooves it.  
which warms my heart to no end.
she has worn it almost every single day since i finished it!

make sure you check out all of the other pinafores that these talented ladies made.  make sure you look at Tara Girl like the Sea's version... i died then declared i need to step up my game!
