Floral Pinafore

I made this pinafore a few months ago from some floral corduroy that I have had for a while in my fabric cupboard. I made up the pattern, it was fairly simple to sew. The skirt is tucked all around, there is a zipper closure and then the suspenders are buttoned on. The clasp on the back is an old scouts neckerchief slide. 

I had seen a couple of pinafores around the internet (I think they're called jumpers in North America) and wanted to try my hand at making myself one. I really like wearing it, it's comfortable and versatile. I was wearing fair isle jumpers underneath it when it was colder and for Summer I think I will wear some short sleeved button up shirts with it! I might try and make some shorts with suspenders next time.


  1. I love pinafores! You did a great job esp with drawing up the pattern yourself :)
