Button Down Pinafore...

This started out as a business shirt from the Op-Shop, but after some unpicking, cutting & sewing Willow has a new Pinafore for school.

Planning

Instead of making Bias binding ties to secure the back of the Pinafore as per the pattern, I utilised the shirt buttons & buttonholes.

I also unpicked the breast pocket & used that on the front.

The arms & neck are finished simply, with bias binding.

The perfect attire for adventuring on a hot Summers day.

Hi, what pattern did you use for this or have you made it up yourself? (might be a stupid question but I see the japanese characters in the top photo) :)
