Finished - the York pinafore

I haven't really been on the pinafore/overall/dungaree trend of the last few years or so, being a teen of the 90's and wearing plenty of that sort of thing the first time around, but as often happens when one is exposed to enough styles, body shapes and variations of such a trend I've been swayed. I pulled the trigger on Helen's Closet new pinafore dress, the York the day it was released. Despite overcoming my breastfeeding obstacles with the babelet, and thoroughly enjoying the time I spend nursing him I can't wait until I can start to choose my outfits and sewing projects simply on what I want to wear, and not based on how easy it will be to access my boobs! But of course that was the first thing I thought of when I saw the York - awesome sideboob access! I loved the scoop sides, the lack of fitting needed and the slight cocoon shape. 

The dress was added to my queue but was bumped to the top a few weeks ago after I had a bit of a miserable moment one Sunday morn…
