Detail of ladybird button

Ladybird Pinafore Dress

Pattern Little Girl’s Crossover Pinafore
Fabric exterior: Green needlecord cotton with ladybird print
lining: Red cotton
Notions Red ladybird buttons, 13mm

Construction notes The lining and exterior are made up and joined to make a single piece. The dress has a straightforward construction, and was quick to complete. I overlocked the inner seams for extra strength, and sewed the buttons on by hand.

  1. I loved this when I spotted it on your other blog – almost as much as I have always loved the term “notions”, ever since I did needlework at school. My next sewing project will be notionless, just curtains, but the start of making the inside of our house fit us and not the previous owners.

    • Thank you. I’m a little pleased with it too- and the term ‘notions’! Curtains are high on my todo list too- we bought the fabric almost a year ago, shamefully! I must make them up soon, though definitely a job that requires a bright relaxed weekend day, and they’ve proved rare of late.
