Penelope Pinafore Sewing Pattern

(3 customer reviews)

$14.00 AUD

Level: Beginner+



The Penelope Pinafore is a relaxed pinafore dress. Choose between tie straps (which don’t need undoing in order to take the garment on and off) or traditional buckles. There are FIVE pockets for hiding all your stuff. There are two lengths – mini to sit above the knee and midi to cover the knee. In addition, a back split can be added to both lengths and you can add a button front. You can also choose to add a button opening at the hip.

The Penelope Pinafore goes from XXS to 5XL. There is a matching child pattern available called the Penny Penny.

Medium weight woven fabrics such as corduroy, denim or linen are perfect for this pattern.

Every Penelope Pinafore needs the perfect t-shirt to wear underneath – the Stephanotis is ideal!

This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.

Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

Take the copy shop file to a professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.

Use the projector file to project the pattern straight onto your fabric.

The pattern is created in layers meaning you can print just the layers (sizes) you need.

This is an instant download PDF, not a finished item. Due to the digital nature of PDF patterns, no refund can be given if purchased in error.

    So for a long time i had my eyes on a pinafore dress, but the brand is ultra hip and therefore ultra expensive.. I though i could make it easily myself, and with better fabric! So i did and I love it, I am not really somebody who makes massive amounts of clothes, because when i really love something I wear it to dead! I think I will make a secont one though. It needs to go into the washing machine sometimes!! The pattern is awesome, and very easy to understand, there are different skirtlengths and different ways to close the flap!! You need this pattern!

    I have made at least half a dozen of these, both for myself and friends/family. Because it’s so easy fitting it makes a great gift and is flattering to different body shapes and sizes. The instructions are well explained, I like that there are multiple options for customisation such as different straps, and pockets and it’s an overall great garment.

    Shoulders were a bit broad for me but otherwise lovely fit. Lovely finish on the button plackets
