This darling pull-on pinafore ties under the arms and has sweet little ruffle "sleeves". The pieced bodice is the perfect place for embroidery, monogramming, or showcasing a motif from your fabric's print. Apron-front can have optional pockets with adorable bias trim.

This listing is for the pinafore pattern ONLY, no underdress pattern is included. You might like to try Tie Dye Diva's Easy Peasy Peasant Dress pattern and Baby's Party Dress pattern, both shown beneath and available here on You Can Make This.

Pinafores have been worn for centuries. You'll recognize them from Alice in Wonderland, Dorothy in Oz and other favorite storybook characters. Real children wore them all the time! They were worn as a protective apron that could be easily washed, keeping the fancier dress beneath (that may have had buttons or ornate stitching not easily washed) clean. The pinafore was "pinned" to the front, or "fore" of the dress, and thus called the 'pinafore"! No fasteners to worry about in the wash.

Sizes included: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months.

Recommended sewing experience: Beginner/Advanced Beginner. Color photos and diagrammed stitching lines walk you through every step.
