EDIT 01/04/2014: Ooppps just realised I meant to mention that this Pattern is adapted from http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/angel-wings-pinafore.html 

I initially tried to make one of these for my daughter using Bevs Pattern… But half way through realised there was a error in the pattern. I found this error and therefore included it here 🙂

Ive never claimed this to be my own pattern, but I don’t know about you its rather annoying getting half through something and it being totally wrong.. Hence this Post… Ive included the Link to Bev’s Pattern, as credit for where credit is due x

    This may go without saying, but rather than worrying about the possibility of making mistakes, you could just direct people to the pattern, yes?

      Ive just realised that I hadn’t included a Link to Bev’s Pattern.
      What I did realise when making that pattern, that it was indeed incorrect. So after numerous of attempts I realised the mistake and put it on my post :)… I have included a link now to the Original x
