Here is another Apron Dress, made this time in a lovely soft and lightweight floral print corduroy (I could not resist making another one)! Also see my Apron Dress made in a denim look linen.
This sewing pattern (G) was taken from the Japanese ‘Stylish Dress Book – simple smocks, dresses and tops’ by Yoshiko Tsukiori. I love the Pinafore style of the dress, especially the back strap design – so utility chic, and with the fabric’s floral print, so Granny chic too!
I made and attached a pocket to the front of the dress this time, but you can barely see it due to the busy print of the fabric.
I made this skirt less flared than my linen apron dress as it looks better in corduroy. I did the top stitching using a twin needle.
The back strap really does it for me!
Here is another pocket on the lower back of the dress.
This lightweight corduroy sews like a dream unlike the thick and heavyweight corduroy of my Abigail (pinafore) Dress. Its feels soft and comfortable to wear. I must get some more!
Corduroy is an ideal fabric for Autumn/Winter. Do you like corduroy?
