What we think: This is a classic with a twist. The cocoon shape is perfect for any other pear shapes out there, and the relaxed nature of the dress will make it easy to fit. It works well in summer over a T-shirt and would look great in corduroy over a polo neck in the winter.
Suggested fabrics: Medium to heavy weight woven fabrics such as cotton twill, denim, wool, linen, corduroy, and canvas. Crisp lightweight fabrics such as cotton and lightweight linen can also be used for a warm-weather pinafore. Use drapier fabrics such as tencel twill, wool crepe, rayon crepe, or viscose poplin if you prefer a softer, less structured look.
