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

  • Mustard Waffle Cotton - This fabric is all about subtlety. The golden hue is bright but earthy, and the cotton is woven with a waffle texture that adds amazing visual interest to what seems like a solid fabric. If you're a yellow fan, this is the fabric for you. You won't find another fabric like it.
  • Half Circle Imagined Landscapes Canvas - The blue on grey tones of this fabric are so soothing, and we love how the half circles look like mountain landscape paintings. Using the stripes around the skirt of the pinafore creates and apron look to the dress and we think it is both fun and timeless. We love it!
  • Black Willa Cotton Jacquard - We used the red version of this fabric in the fall, and we loved it so much that we knew we had to use it again. The simple black is transformed by the jacquard texture where the lighter portions are simple weave and the darker bits is a more open looped weave. It will be an amazing, not so simple, black dress to have in your wardrobe.
    Also in this Box: Matching thread, 4 yards of bias tape, topstitching thread (for denim and canvas options), and a sewing machine needle. In this box, you will also receive the pattern for the Eliot Sweater, also from Helen's Closet, which is a great option to pair with your pinafore.
