Jennifer Lauren Handmade - Pippi Pinafore
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 flattering silhouette for 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. Deep, curved patch pockets make sure you have room for everything you might need throughout the day.
Casual meets practical with a relaxed fit around the waist and hips. and when paired with a fitted knit Gable top, or your favourite shirt, you’ll be ready for a weekend away in the woods or your favourite weekend brunch spot.
Difficulty: adventurous beginners
Sizes: 6-24 included, choose from A, B, C or D cup sizing. (see image for measurements)
The bib, waistband and button band are all lined pattern pieces – it’s important to choose a light-weight lining to keep bulky seams to a minimum (especially if you have a heavier weight fabric in mind). such as cotton lawn, voile and poplin
