Is there a way to make it smaller? Also, back when i was a kid, I had the same top crossover style but it was all one piece.
Is there a way to not do a button or snap and join the pieces altogether? But i would like to figure a smaller size aswell as a toddler size for my niece. Thanks and love the pattern.

I made it today and the pattern was very easy to follow! Thank you for sharing! Is there any reason to make two pattern pieces? I looked at your picture, the one where you lay the inside and outside, right sides facing each other and drew up a pattern that split down the center of the chest. My thinking is to place that on the fold and cut it out that way so there would be no seams.
I hope I am making sense here. Do you think this will work fine? I am making it in about a 4T size so I was unable to use your pattern as is. Love this pinafore…I made lots of them when my 2 girls were little. I even put an applique on one side before sewing them together and made it reversible by sewing buttons on both sides….
