We will be starting at the bottom of page 51 with our buttonholes!

Today, we are working on attaching our skirt to our bibs- yay! That means we are nearly done with our Fleur Pinafores :D I don't think we should wait -- let's dive right in!

Alright, today we are going to tackle the waistband of the skirt, which actually isn't comprised of that many steps- yay!

Once you are ready (with snacks at the ready, of course!) turn to page 39 of your instruction booklet.
