Retro Rainbow Pinafore and Love Message Shorts

This simple pinafore is made using the Emma Dress Pattern by Owly Baby on Etsy I used a vintage rainbow pillow case to create the fun retro look here and the other side of the pinafore is a vintage yellow sheet with an orphan quilt block of mine.

I found that this pattern had too much of a dip in the neckline for my cousin's little girl so I simply folded the straps at the front and stitched them in place and added a decorative button over each one. This pinafore is super simple and fast, perfect for everyday use even though Lucy refuses to wear it...oh well!

I made the shorts using the Oliver and S Bedtime Story Pajama pants pattern and simply drafted them to be shorts. The fabric for the shorts was given to me by a friend and i love how these two pieces go together.
