My Flossie's Pinafore pattern has been consistently popular since I first made it available as a free download in 2010. The pattern has also been available to download for free from Pattern Spot and Craftsy.

I know though that a download pattern isn't always to everyone's taste, and so with that in mind, I recently re graded the pattern and had all three sizes printed onto one master sheet.

The master pattern is printed on high quality paper, so durable for many tracings.
I have also updated the instructions to include more detail,photographs and diagrams, unlike the download version which comes with a simple order of work and no photographs or diagrams.



The pattern is now available to purchase in the Flossie's Garden Etsy store for £7.50.

Also available are several sewing kits, which contain everything you need to make a Flossie's Pinafore for that special little someone in your life.



Each kit includes; the pattern, full instructions, 1 metre of cotton fabric,interfacing,1 reel of matching thread and two co ordinating buttons. The kits are priced at £19.50


The download version will remain free on my blog,Pattern Spot and Craftsy, but if you are looking for a version with more detailed instructions, or prefer a sturdy master pattern from which to trace all three sizes as often as you'd like, or even looking for a gift , then the pattern or kit will work best for you.

Hoping this will be the first of many more patterns and kits this year.

Don't be shy, say hello!
