Floral Pinafore

Way back in January Emma, one of my closest friends, asked for my help because she wanted to make her sister Lucy a pinafore for her birthday, and I of course said YES, so here it is! Emma did practically all of it, with a bit of guidance from myself.


We didn't use a pattern but used one of Lucy's existing pinafores for the bib and drafted a circle skirt to go with it. The straps are just long rectangles which cross over at the back. The beautiful photos were taken in Worcester College in Oxford where Lucy goes to uni.


I had great fun making the pinafore with Emma, and it was really nice to teach somebody a bit of what I've learnt so far.
I have my last A Level exam tomorrow so very very soon I'll have time to sew up the millions of projects that are in my head!
Thanks very much for reading!

  2. Just for interest's sake, you might be proud to know that a young (beautiful) biochemist [me] wore this to present currant research on a protein (called Notch) to the Oxford University Biochemistry Department. Audience members included super clever people who asked where I had got the pinafore from! ..So, Lauren; You're famous too!
