Each Fall Violette Field Threads releases an epic collection of Back to School patterns. This year they released two incredible collections!!! This darling dress and pinafore set is made from their Harper Dolman Dress pattern and their Lulu Pinafore.
For the Harper dress, the ruffled sleeves and collar options were chosen. For the Lula pinafore, the ribbon tie backs were selected.
A small scale floral in plum was contrasted by bolder stripes and plaid in this set. Magenta was the unifying color in all 3 fabrics allowing them to work beautifully together.
A exposed lace zipper was used to finish the Lulu pinafore. I prefer using exposed zippers for two reasons. Firstly, the more feminine the better in my books! I love the extra girly touch the lace provides! Second, I find them easier to install and look neat! There is more room for error and hiding your boo boos with an exposed zipper :)
