This plaid, pinafore-style romper is probably my most favourite thing I've made! It's quite similar to my DIY overalls from a few posts back, except that the top part extends right up to my collar, and I added bows to either side of the shorts. I was inspired by this pinafore dress from Dahlia, which I pinned on Pinterest a few days ago (and if you follow my pinterest you'll always know what I'm going to be making really soon, haha).
While I was making them, my mum popped in and said "you know, I think this was the fabric for our school uniforms when I was younger..."
Great, haha. I also went to the same high school as my mum so.. that's fun. I must be having bizzare sadistic cravings to relive my high school days (although, the uniform had changed a bit from my mum's time. But the skirts were pretty much the same fabric as this, looking back on it...)
