Joleen Handmade Reversible Girls Pinafore Dress
A handmade, sweet button fastening girls pinafore dress, shown here in 100% cotton baby cord from Dashwood Studio. For other fabric choices please see my Fabric Choices page
With easy to wear shoulder button fastenings this classic design is perfect for everyday wear or a special occasion. There are endless possibilities for layering, with pretty much any colour top, and socks or soft tights and boots, she's the perfect transitional item from Autumn to Winter and back into Spring
Available in age 6mo to 5T, the fit is pretty generous and can be lengthened when needed by re-positioning the buttons, and when finally too short, can be worn as a tunic with leggings or thick tights
Please note this dress is reversible. It and contains buttons which could present a choking hazard if they come loose. Button and buttonhole sites are strengthened with interfacing.
