The Pippi Pinafore will become your favourite go-to weekend dress. Darts and gently curved sides shape the bib, creating a silhouette that works across multiple bust sizes. The pleated front skirt and side button placket create a relaxed look while also stepping your sewing repertoire up a few notches.
Straps cross over the back and fasten to the bib using your choice of overall hardware or buttons (depending on what you have in your stash). And deep, curved patch pockets make sure you have room for everything you might need throughout the day.
Pippi is perfect for those who like the bib-style pinafore dress, but want more shaping around the bust for a better fit. With cup sizes A to D included, you’ll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.
Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements, as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.
Main Fabric: Fabric with structure and some drape work best, but stiffer fabrics will lend a more defined quality to your Pippi Pinafore. Chambray, linen, wool, corduroy, or denim, just to name a few.
Lining Fabric: Cotton lawn, voile and poplin make great options, as do quilting cottons when using a lighter weight fabric for your main garment.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Sizing: The Pippi Pinafore comes in UK/AUS sizes 6-24, which translates to US sizing 2-20. Includes cup sizes A-D.
