Dotty Smock or Pinafore

The challenge was thrown to me to make a smock or pinafore for a little girl. I had been previously looking at apron patterns and I came across an etsy shop called CreativeJnee's which had a pattern for sale which looked interesting. So taking a the 70s Misses apron idea and a pattern for pinafore I had previously made, I made this!

It is quite a simple design that crosses over at the back and lends itself to a growing toddler.

To make it more girly, I put some pockets in and added buttons as embellishments.

I also decided (for an extra degree of difficulty) to make the dress/pinafore reversible.
I am going to refine the pattern a bit when I get feedback from the customer and make my daughter one to kick around in.
