Reminiscent of an earlier day, this retro pinafore is perfect over a peasant dress or blouse and skirt. The unique back strap design keeps the pinafore on, even if the ties should come undone. Sized for 6 months to 8 yrs, it can be a simple sundress with fancy shorts or a ruffled diaper cover underneath. A bonus feature is instructions on how to make your own bias tape.

The book has 12 pages and 24 instructional color photos.
