Ora Pinafore by Soften Studio | Sew Along Tutorial from Sewing Therapy

UPDATE (Feb 2023) : Unfortunately Ora Pinafore Pattern has been discontinued from Soften Studio.

Hello and welcome to Sewing Therapy. Today I invite you to sew an Ora Pinafore with me. Good news first! Melody of Soften Studio generously offers you a special discount code for a limited time! I ‘ll leave the information down in the description below.  As the seasons changed, I realized that I had too many summer garments on my Make Nine 2022 so I removed two summery ones and added this beautiful pattern instead. I hope you don’t mind the swap! If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I have already made an Ora Pinafore and gifted it to my cousin earlier in the year. I needed to make one more for myself, so I decided to make a video for you too.

Melody has included really thoughtful instructions with the pattern and I followed them for the most part. My minor mods were to remove the Hem Facing to show you how to make a high-low hem and remove the darts as I didn’t think I needed them.

The Ora Pinafore is the perfect opportunity to learn or practice the burrito method! Don’t be intimidated by it! The burrito method seems complicated at first, but if you go slow and understand the steps, you’ll get the hang of it. And it’s a useful tool to have in your experience as it’s so great for garments with lining. 

By the way, I also started TikTok and planning on posting useful sewing tips there as well. So please don’t forget to follow me there! Thanks!
