Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This is a 2-in-1 project. The pattern includes instructions to make either a skirt or a pinafore. This cute pattern has been designed thanks to a gift I needed for a friend's granddaughter. :)

This pattern is in two parts - in the first part, we'll make the skirt, and then we'll add on the top to make it a pinafore - so you decide how far you want to take this project - i.e just a skirt, or a pinafore.

This pattern also has a little jacket / coat made with a similar stitch pattern, that is available separately (currently being tested - 06 June 2014)

This pattern is written using US terminology, and comes with a chart, superb explanations as well as photos as needed for explanation.
Gauge has been given in pattern.
