pinafore dress and belt illustration

Just a quick post today!!

I managed to do a few drawing last week, This is the first time since before going away in July that I've done any, I almost forgot how relaxing it can be so I made it up by doing three.

Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
