Pinny Power …. Not Just For The More Mature (anymore)

THE pocket, all essential to nanna's the world over.... It's where that crumpled note of money live's until she can sneak it  into your hand while she says SUSH! How fab are nannna's and grandads!?

Nice firm fabric that can be yanked about without fear of it ripping.

In a bid for yet another quick make for my vintage fair debut in November, I cut out a very simple Pinny that as you already know dear reader is made from genuine vintage fabric. I found some gorgeous bright and vivid green velvet ribbon that was amongst my poptatic finds that had come all the way from Malta. 

I have very deliberately made this pinny for a more curvy lady as we do rather get over looked. There is an assumption we want to wear saggy and shapeless clothes, which if you are curvy or have a curvy woman know is total tosh!

Therefore the waist tie is deeper and has a nice firm interfacing to hold its shape, the only change I would make is the length, it’s a bit too long for my liking. That said because it is a colour fast, heavy weight cotton is super practical for real use, not just looking pretty. 

Next job today is to make a pattern for a kimono and I look forward to sharing it with you here. 

Thanks for taking the time to red and my wish is you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend my dear reader. X

    Am curious about why you made the waist deeper… for a curvy person, I’d have thought to make it narrower, allowing more curve space. Talk soon! delxx

    Tbh I made to my preference as I am very high waisted and hate to feel anything narrow as I feel like a sack of spuds tied in the middle but will take your view on board as others may not feel the way I do. 😉

    you know I was really curious about this pinny just had a chance to sit down and have a good look at it. You know me Mrs cream and lace 😉 it’s gorgeous the pattern on the fabric draws your eye and the ribbon adds that touch of luxury. I would feel very glam cooking my Hubby’s roast with that on x
