New Pattern Release - The Pippi Pinafore...

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

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 Details

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 (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.

Casual meets practical with a relaxed fit around the waist and hips, and when paired with a fitted knit Gable or Ostara top, or your favourite shirt, you'll be ready for a weekend away in the woods or for your favourite weekend brunch spot.

Multiple Bust Cups

Pippi is perfect for those who like the bib-style pinafore dress, but want more shaping around the bust for a flattering 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.

Pair Pippi with a short sleeved Gable Top for a cool, handmade summer outfit. 

If winter is coming your way, making your Pippi Pinafore in wool and pairing it with a long sleeved Ostara Top, will keep you cosy and warm over the colder months.

Skill Level

Pippi is a perfect project for the adventurous beginner seamstress and beyond.

Learn techniques like top-stitching, constructing a side button fastening and attaching patch pockets.

Fabric Options

Pippi has you covered year round - made up in chambray or linen and paired with your favourite t-shirt, you'll be summer ready. And when winter temperatures hit, choose wool, corduroy or denim for the perfect dress layered over tights and boots.

Fabric with structure and some drape work best, but stiffer fabrics will lend a more defined quality to your Pippi Pinafore.

Lining Fabric:

The bib, waistband and button band are all lined pieces - it's important to choose a light-weight lining to help keep bulky seams to a minimum (especially if you have heavier weight fabric in mind). Cotton lawn, voile and poplin make great options, as do quilting cottons when using a lighter weight fabric for your main garment.

The Layers Function

Both Print-at-Home and Print Shop Pippi pattern files now include the Layers Function.

You can choose to turn on and off any number and combination of pattern sizes to suit your personal needs and preferences. Check out page 3 of your Pippi instructions for a full step-by-step tutorial on using this handy little function.
