A classic pinafore for work and play. With a buttoned side fastening, side and back pockets. Make it long with a back split or short just below the knee. Accentuate the detailing with contrast top stitching or keep it simple with matching thread.

This is a multi-size paper pattern including sizes 6 – 18. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless stated otherwise and are included in the pattern.

Fabric Suggestions – 8-12oz denim, cotton twill or canvas, corduroy.  For a softer look and feel you could try a mid weight linen or tencel/linen blend.

For the facings we would recommend either a cotton muslin or a slip viscose lining. 

You will need: 8 x 15-18mm Buttons 1 x Matching thread Top stitch thread if you are going to do contrast top stitching.

Home of the beautiful and unique

As a recovering fabric hoarder, the last thing I needed was to discover Maai Design store.
But it was love at first swipe.
An elegantly curated selection of fabric, easily searchable and complimented by a great selection of patterns.
I bought a black double cotton gauze I’d been searching for, a delicious green seersucker (very hard to find) and a longed for pattern from the Assembly Line. The indulgence came quickly and packaged beautifully.

Highly recommended - but slightly addictive.
Venture in at your peril!

Consistency

I’ve recently bought some beautiful double gauze for summer tops and dresses.
The quality of the fabrics are consistently high and the delivery reliable. One day my making might be too, it’s fun working towards that!
