Mourning Pinafore (Black, with side ties)

Mourning Pinafore (Black, with side ties)

When I looked up 'mourning pinafores' I honestly thought they'd be a thing, from somewhere. Nope. Well, now there's at least one.

It has: a strap on one shoulder and a tie on the other, plus 3 ties down the side - with extras to let dangle as you'd like! In the last pic you can see it untied.

On your left hip is layers of cotton and linen with frayed trims. Oh, and look more ties that look like they could be hiked up and tied together? I didn't photograph this, but try it and let me know.

Asymmetric hem. A technical aside: it has lots of frayed trim and details, all of which are reinforced with stitching. It's solid. It has a lot going on in terms of shape and details but isn't super weighty - it is ready to layer with lots of other stuff. I know thie because I just tried it on and pranced around the house in it a bit. Should we be prancing while mourning? I say yes, do what feels right.
