Simplicity 4097.

That looks almost exactly the same as this dress I saw AGES ago at Saks Fifth Avenue....

Ooh, I do NOT like that bubble hem.

Irishride - and anyone else who wants it - PM me your email, and I'll send you a scan of a form to get this pattern for free!  I got it from Adorn magazine.  It's just $2.50 for S&H.

Your dress turned out great. I haven't worn a pinafore dress since elementary school but after seeing yours I want one Grin

i saved money a while back by making something very much like this for my little girl out of a men's wool shirt.

It's a pretty dress.... But now I really want to read the stories!
my husband once told me a funny story about a librarian who got a little wild, and her reaction the next morning when she found her glasses and got a good look at him. just check out this photo of him, and you can use your imagination as to how long it took her to get dressed:

I think the pattern is 4097 Simplicity. I made the dress also but I used lightweight fabric and it made me look pregnant (my scared husband told me with a question in his eyes  Wink ).
It looks way better on you!!  Shocked
