Not quick, not simple, very cute!

Just when I think I have a reprieve from "event" sewing, Halley's preschool schedules a Hawaiian themed picture day.  I thought... how perfect!  I will whip up a little pinafore from a pattern I have been dying to try.  The cover page screams "QUICK & SIMPLE!"  Well it was if you consider four hours and lots of seam ripping either quick or simple.  I happen to not agree.  The cute flower on the front?  Totally inspired by Jane Says and Little Bit Funky.  It cutes up the dress a ton, but was only an after thought when I couldn't handle my hideous stitching underneath.
