The York Pinafore is a playful addition to your handmade wardrobe. It is easy to layer over tank tops for summer or turtlenecks and leggings for colder weather. The York Pinafore is a modern take on a classic pinafore dress with a cocoon shape and two views. View A features large scoop pockets, a dipped neckline, and comes to the knee. View B is a shorter length with a high neckline and a kangaroo pocket. More...

Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Black Washed 8oz Denim - We love denim, and we especially love it when it has a cool wash to it. Indigo blue isn't the only color for denim, and a black wash can dress up this utilitarian fabric. On the lighter side for denim, this fabric has a nice suppleness to it, which is perfect for the dress, and it will really show off the cocoon shape nicely. With contrasting topstitching, you'll have the perfect denim look when you just don't feel like wearing jeans.
  • Black & White Woodblock Unbleached Canvas - My favorite artist is Franz Kline, and this fabric just makes me think of his striking abstract expressionist paintings. There's something so simple yet so alluring about the painterly woodblock print, black lines and and unbleached cotton canvas. And with the clean lines of the pinafore, the pattern will really shine!
  • Blush Faces Digital Kahlo Rayon Slub - I know this print is a little bolder than some might choose, but it's also stunning. Picasso-like faces cover the fabric, combining different bright colors and softer skin tones. It's a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes and it will make for a knockout pinafore. Plus, the rayon slub is light but not slinky so it will give a softer look to the dress, if you want less structure and more drape. 
    Also in this Box: Matching thread, 4 yards of bias tape, topstitching thread (for denim and canvas options), and a sewing machine needle
