The Bobbi pinafore // Tilly & the Buttons

I didn’t think I needed another pinafore. I was wrong! Bobbi is the latest release from Tilly and the Buttons and is a button from tree skirt/ pinafore pattern. The skirt has a classic A line shape with princess seams instead of darts on the back. The addition of a little bib piece and straps […]

I love that this pattern is a “gown” and not just a “dress”. It makes it sound so fancy! This pattern has been on my radar for since its release by Friday Pattern Co last year. There have been tons of gorgeous versions of this dress floating around on social media. After a lot of […]
