This is my second Roly Poly Pinafore (first one here!), and I loved making this one as much as the last.
This pattern is so many things that I love - simple to sew, easy to customize, and showcases your fabric choices beautifully. Rachael pretty much knocked this one out of the park!
the roly-poly is a pinafore-style tunic top with crossover back that fastens at the shoulder with two buttons. it features clean lines, neckline pleat, optional in-seam pockets, and is reversible. whether you layer your roly-poly with a colorful cardi and skinnies, pair with your favorite summer skirt, or use as a keep-clean smock, this tunic fits perfectly into the wardrobe of the easy, simple days of childhood.
This version is sewn in a dark blue/grey super soft chambray, and a woodland print on the inside. Though this pinafore is totally reversible, I didn't add buttons to the inside of this one because I am so madly in love with this coyote that I can't imagine ever keeping him hidden!
To make the coyote pocket, I used this printable fabric, and an image from this Etsy seller. I printed it out, then sewed it to some natural colored muslin with right sides together, leaving room to turn it rightside out, then top stitched it to the pinafore, leaving a long space open along the top to make it a pocket!
Isn't he handsome?!
Here's a shot of the inside fabric! So cute. ALL the woodland creatures ALL the time. :D
Photoshoot day was a washout! What a bummer! But here's the pinafore on Emmy out in the rain:
She loves the pocket!
Thanks to Rachael for inviting me along on the Roly Poly Tour! I adore this pattern!
