9 Pinafore Pattern by Imagine Gnats

Rachael asked me if I would be interested in being a pattern tester for her Pinafore and I thought, "Uh... yah!". I have been wanting to make a pinafore for Lala forever and like all the things on my very long to do list, it gets pushed aside as I add more and more things. 
Does that sound familiar to you?
It's funny how things work out. I'm so glad I waited until now. Rachael's pattern is still in the works and I believe she's still looking for a few more pattern testers. Check it out over HERE.
This pattern is simple and direct. Perfect for the newbie sewist. You have the option of either having it reversible or not. To get the most bang, I made Lala's reversible. The only thing I did differently was adding my own little pockets on the outside versus the hidden pockets provided with the pattern.
The stars must be aline...
Lala was kind enough to allow me to take a few photos of her without any drama (or a cookie). Very rare folks. VERY rare.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the pattern. It's quick and easy, perfect for my hectic lifestyle.
Maybe it was the balloon that put her in a good mood. Either way...
I'll take it!
If you haven't met Rachael from Imagine Gnats, I kindly implore you to pay a visit to her blog. She's a wonderful gal with loads of inspiration and talent! You can also find her HERE and HERE.
Make sure to give her a hug for me!

P.S., Notice the plant display? I'll show you how to make one of your own using everyday kitchen finds next week!
