The Franklin pinafore is a versatile dress that you’ll want to wear again and again. It has a comfy and casual loose fit that can be pulled in at the waist with the tabs when you want that more tailored look. It has deep hip pockets – big enough for a phone or purse! There are also two options for tying the straps in the instructions, to give you more ways to make it yours.
