What are you most proud of? Just love little pinafores. They work well as sundresses, and also as little 'aprons' over dresses.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience with vintage patterns. Vintage patterns assume that one has a fairly good knowledge of sewing construction, so the instructions are not as detailed as the new patterns. Read and re-read before beginning cutting or stitching.

Adorable, as are all your creations. I like the pairing of green and white because I'm particularly fond of green. Of course, any pastel color would be equally charming.

It was one my mom had made for me in the 40's. I found it in her sewing "stash" after she passed on.
