I have made a pinafore all on my own, with only the aid of various websites and my new sewing machine.
I am wearing for my dark!Alice in Wonderland costume at Redemption, so I have finished it just in time. It doesn't look quite like the one she wears, but then neither does the 'dress' I'm wearing.
In making it I have learnt lots of things not to do (like run out of thread on the bobbin and not notice until you get to the end and find half the seam isn't sewn). But mostly I have learnt that black is really hard to see what you're doing. It's not the most perfectly made thing ever, but as long as it holds up long enough to wear for a day, that'll do me.
