Shauna from Shwin & Shwin shares a free pattern for making her Pretty Purple Pinafore for little girls. The sundress with a ruffled bodice is made from a white fabric that she dip-dyes in purple for an ombre effect. It would also be cute made from a print. Her free pattern is for a size 3T/4T, but it should be fairly easy to adjust it up or down as needed. Go to Shwin & Shwin for the pattern and tutorial.
