We simply adore a nice pinafore!... like this playful and classy 40s Brenda Librarian Check Pinafore Dress in Charcoal! The stunning dress features adjustable straps and a playful double row of buttons. From the waist band down she runs into a gorgeous swing skirt that moves along gracefully with every step you take. She's made of a supple, dark-grey fabric (doesn't stretch) with a subtle check pattern. Match with loafers for a preppy look or high heels for an elegant look. Pretty pinafore... now we love you even more!

Chosen as a favourite by our beloved customer Mégane. Mégane: “When I first started to dress vintage, I have found about TopVintage almost directly. This cute website has been my first experience as a retro newbie, and I come back again and again, because of the detailed descriptions (having the measurements is a major bonus!), the amazing customer service, the fast shipping and the cute parcels. I am never disappointed with TopVintage! ♥️”
