Pippi Pinafore
Jennifer Lauren Handmade

$18.00 each

With a fitted bib, deep patch pockets and fun side button fastening, Pippi is a fresh take on the classic overall dress, combining comfort with a sleek and playful silhouette.

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.

The pattern envelope contains a full size printed pattern and printed instructions.  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.

Make Ideas

Casual meets practical with a relaxed fit around the waist and hips, and when paired with a fitted knit, you’ll be ready for a weekend away in the woods or your favourite brunch spot.  Choose an airy structured linen for summer, or pair a heavier twill with tights and boots for cooler weather.  Keep in mind, stiffer fabrics will lend a more defined quality to your Pippi Pinafore.
