I made this recreation of Molly's Party Pinafore from an out-of-print American Girl pattern. I followed the directions exactly but had a very hard time figuring out how to attach the sash. I mulled over it in my mind for two days before doing the sensible thing and asking my mom how in the world I should go about attaching the silly thing, and, as is usually the case, Mamma knew exactly what to do. :-)
So TIP FOR TODAY: If you don't know, ask your mom. :-)
Anyway! I loved working with the pattern, especially the ruffles, which were unlike anything I have ever done yet!
