This great little pinafore is a new additions to the range for going into spring, but is really a versatile piece you can wear all year round. We have added a button front to this version which means along with cute detailing, this piece is a perfect shape for all year round with or without layers.
FEATURES: This new pinafore is a wonderful little shape to wear going into summer or all throughout winter, we love the clean cut of this shift style pinafore and the look of it with stripes, textured and plain coloured layers. We will be wearing ours with stripey tops and cute printed blouses underneath. She is a simple cut with cute details like a little kangaroo pocket front, deep v-neck with button front and a set-in waistline to create interest. We love her deep v shaped neckline and double stitched seams which give a classic denim detailing even on the printed versions. We love the oversized kangaroo pocket on the front which adds some fun to a simple shape which is great worn with fun accessories. We think Priya is perfect for summer as a strappy dress too, we have made sure the coverage you get at the arm hole covers your bra, even if it has wide straps. Perfect for end of year parties and backyard barbecues.There is also a button front on this version which makes this a breast feeding friendly piece too, perfect for new mums! This new pinafore is also 2 inches longer than our Petra Pinafore style, and has the same classic shift shape fit through the body as the Petra and Penelope shapes. She also works perfectly belted at the waistline, and is shaped through the back and front seams which means there is plenty of room through the hips, but she isn't too roomy in the waist to wear without a belt either. The silhouette sits beautifully and comfortably all day, and as you know, comfort is key when we design cute things!
HOW TO WEAR: This new pinafore shape is designed to be worn as a v neck dress on warmer days but we will also be wearing ours with our Rizzo, Every Day Tees and Sybil tees underneath.We love a stripe top under a bold print, or a plain version with one of our printed shirts like Shirley or Trixie. We love this pinafore in a bold print, because they can be hard to wear normally but this pini is just enough print coverage to not be to much. She can be worn to work with colour blocked contrast colours. Try a Priya pinafore with one of our famous Clementine cardigans for winter warmth, and layer her up with scarves, brooches or even a belt to accessorise. The length hits at the knee or just above on most heights and is slightly shorter on tall frames. This length works well for summer if you want to layer with our new leggings which are soft enough to wear under this piece for it to work well. We love the pinafore worn in summer too with a little t-shirt or one of our button up shirts underneath, as the fabrics we have used are lightweight enough to work all year round. We also love it in summer for the beach, wear it with your swimmers underneath as the cut sits along the shape of your bra line, so it is quite fun worn as a strappy dress that still provides plenty of bra strap coverage. Priya is a fun, versatile shape we are sure you will love wearing as much as we do.
PRINT: Possum Magic by Andrea Smith.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Andrea Smith is a Sydney based illustrator who specialises in paper cut artworks which she creates from paper she has painted with watercolour paints. This creates tones and textures that give the finished animals depth and colourful undertones. These Possums were created first in sketch form and then by free hand cutting around the shapes to layer and create the possums in full. We love Andreas process and love working with these amazing paper cuts to then create the fabric repeat.
FABRIC: 100% cotton drill heavy weight with 5% stretch. Same drill we use for our digitally printed Sunset skirts, Penny skirts and Petra pinafores.
