A pinny for a pal

Here's a little something I sewed up last week, as part of a work friend's Birthday present. She'd previously gushed over the pinky / fleshy floral fabric (observant readers will note that it's the same fabric included in one of my current giveaways) so I knew I just had to incorporate it in her pinny and she seemed really happy when we gave it to her. The pinny's being modelled by Diana, my trusty dress form, who also happened to be borrowing my 1940s Swing Dress. I actually think the two look really good together!

In other news, I should be ready to report on my Crescent Skirt sew-along progress soon. The sew-along is being led by the pattern's designer, Tasia of Sewaholic, and I'm very excited to be a part of it as she's so talented and  I know I'll be learning some excellent techniques along the way.

Lastly, I also want to thank you all for the great response to my last post. I'm now up to 111 readers...if I'd known how successful bribery was, I'd have tried it sooner ;o) Seriously though, thank you all again and I hope that the winners of the giveaways will be delighted with what they receive.

Hope you've all had a great Easter weekend!
