A classic pinafore for work and play. With a buttoned side fastening, side and back pockets. Make it long with a back split or short just below the knee. Accentuate the detailing with contrast top stitching or keep it simple with matching thread.
Skill level – experienced.
This is a multi-size paper pattern including sizes 6 – 18. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless stated otherwise and are included in the pattern.
We would suggest using the following fabrics – 8-12oz denim, cotton twill or canvas, corduroy, moleskin, half panama cotton. For a softer look and feel you could try a mid weight linen or tencel/linen blend.

8 x 15-18mm Buttons
1 x Matching thread
Top stitch thread if you are going to do contrast top stitching.
