    Do you love to sew but hate those time consuming, confusing, and expensive sewing patterns? Not to mention the high cost of fabric? Me too! In my 40+ years of sewing I have enjoyed the freedom and creativity of upcycling far beyond pattern sewing. In this pdf tutorial you will get step by step instructions along with many detailed photos to teach you how to create your own women's pinafore dress.

    Check out my YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbjfuDv9HSUFYB6xn0DjjQA for helpful sewing tips and tutorials.

    You can use this tutorial to create a closet full of pinafores in different colors and prints! And since this is a tutorial, not a pattern, you can create this pinafore in any size. Make one for a friend, or your daughter, or your friend's daughter. :)
