I promise this is not going to be The Pinafore Blog, but I have a lot of friends having baby girls right now and so ...
Three separate pinafores, with all the same fabric. I didn't think, until after I had cut all the fabric, that you might be able to see through the fabric - but I don't think it's too big of a deal?
These are my first pinafores without the pre-cut fabric. I think they turned out all right, and they're getting incredibly easy.
In fact, I'm really glad I started out this way. It was a good project to help me get comfortable with my sewing machine. No more pulling out the manual and studying it for an hour just to figure out how to thread the machine. I could thread the machine, wind the bobbin, and insert it with my eyes closed.
