I've been wanting to make these for a long time and finally got around to it just in time for the warm weather.  I've seen so many great ones on here and was totally inspired by them.

I used the Olivia reversible pinafore pattern on etsy to make them, and I'm wondering if anyone else has used the pattern.  If so what did you think about it?  I had a bit of trouble putting pattern together.  I'm wondering if it was just me or if anyone else had that problem.  It wasn't too bad though.  I just kinda winged it, but I think the finished product came out ok.

I chose this pattern because it didn't have buttons or ties at the shoulders, which is the way I wanted it.  I'm a little disappointed with the shoulder seams though.  They came out on the front instead of on top of the shoulder.  I guess I'm a little too picky, but I'm gonna try to alter the pattern a bit to adjust the shoulders on my next ones.

I really don't mean to complain so much.  I am happy I got the pattern and will be getting plenty of use out of it.  Just wondering what others thought of it.

Anyway, here's my girls!  I am so happy that the pattern included sizes to fit them both.

So you can see the shoulder:

I got all the fabric at Joann's either 50% off or from the remnant bin.  I love that my girls are small enough I can make them clothes from the remnant bin!  The green on my oldest daughter's is my favorite, but of course she likes the pink better!  Thanks for looking.  I'd love to know what you all think, good or bad!

very cute! If you don't like the seam (I agree it is off) what about sewing on some accent buttons or grosgrain ribbon bows. That would cover it and add a cute touch.

May our efforts reflect our values.
May the variety in life bring us joy.
May we seek to inspire not compete.
May we have happy hearts.

Those are very cute!  I've never used that pattern, though I've seen tons of people online who do.  They only seem to ever make the underdress, though, so maybe there is something about the pinafore that is frustrating.  I think they turned out to be adorable either way.   Smiley

Thanks for the replies. Smiley  That's a good idea about the buttons or bows to cover the shoulder seams, I just might do that.  Thanks for the idea!

Your girls look so cute in the pinafores!  Love the fabric choices, too.  Very summery. Smiley  I think you got some good ideas for covering the shoulder seams, but I also think it looks just fine as is, too.
