The Sydney Pinafore: Pattern and Tutorial

Hey guys!  I am so excited to announce that I have another FREE pattern and tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew !
Most of you know that I am originally from Australia, right?  I have designed a pattern for a sweet little cross back pinafore, the same style that is a true staple in a little girl’s Australian wardrobe.  I might live in the USA now, but I still love the simple, classic style of this basic dress and I am so excited to share it with all of YOU!  

The FREE pattern is available in sizes 12-24 months, 2t, 3t, and 4t.
I had a bunch of lovely ladies pattern test for me and I hope to upload those photos to my Flickr group soon!

If you have any issues or problems with the pattern, please feel free to email me @ mousehousecreations (at) yahoo (dot) com

    Just a question on the skirt and elastic measurements. Are the measurements in centimetres or inches?
