My version of the pinafore dress, it is a lightweight cotton printed with birds from Ikea. It was white but I decided to dye it green, it came out quite a bit more green than I anticipated but I’ve grown to like the colour. I had to make a few adjustments as my top and bottom half are different sizes. I also added a button as I am of the opinion that there are few things in life that can’t be improved with the addition of buttons. I like the simple shape and bright colour, it makes me feel all springy!
