Louisa's pinafore dress

Here's Louisa's pinafore dress, made using some drill I got on clearance at Spotlight. I really like it, although while making it I worried a little that it would look too 'school uniform' in the brown colour. Happily, though, the daisies add that bit of little girl prettiness to it. I may add an aqua ribbon around the bodice, but haven't had a chance to get to the shops to look for any yet.
This photo doesn't show the gathers at the back which look very pretty.

Suz, this look stunning! Not too school uniformy at all, brown is the new black! Lovely smile from Louisa too! :)

Definitely not schoolish at all, just adorable! Lousia looks so proud of it too :)

What a cutie. And I think the blues definitely remove it from the school uniform category, especially the shoulder buttons.
