Pinafore Dress with Circle Skirt Drafting Tutorial

Have you always dreamed of learning how to draft your own sewing patterns? With this Pinafore Dress with Circle Skirt Drafting Tutorial, even beginner sewists can discover how to create their own pattern!

From the Blogger: "This easy tutorial is for people who are new to pattern drafting but have some sewing experience. A pinafore dress is a cute little addition to your wardrobe and there are multiple ways it can be rocked. Pattern making is such a unique skill to possess since you basically have the freedom to create anything you want.

Getting started can be a little tricky and that’s why I’ve created this tutorial for those of you who are just at the beginning of your pattern drafting expedition. Of course, you don’t have to be a beginner to have a go at making this cute little dress."

This pinafore dress is making a huge comeback and just like dungarees, it's a huge hit. I'm glad this pattern is in a video format, it's better for a beginner to learn through watching than reading. Making the circle skirt isn't hard at all and the blogger makes the rest a breeze. You can still make this dress for fall in a thicker knit fabric.

This dress is so cute! I think I might be too old for this dress since it looks like it's made for someone younger but I want to try it anyway.

I agree with you that this dress is a little young for me but it does show how to start drafting your own patterns and if you have ever wanted do do that then this is a good video. Have you ever made your own patterns? It can be very fun. If you make one let me know how it goes.
