Here's a little pinafore I made for Keira from some crisp brown cotton, and vintage bird fabric I've had in my stash for a while for the pockets and facings.

I've always loved this square neck style, and am wondering if an adult version of this would be acceptable? It ties at the back, ready for wearing over anything else you might have on... kind of like an apron which I suppose is why I like this style so much.
