I’ve not managed to fit in much sewing in the last couple of weeks. But I have finally had a chance to finish and photograph my latest make. It’s the #pippipinafore by @jenniferlaurenhandmade. I have got a lot of wear out of my cleo pinafore so wanted another pinafore for my winter wardrobe but I fancied trying something different. With its buttonholes, lined bodice and feature pockets, the pippi pinafore seemed to be the perfect step up and a slightly more challenging sew for a #memade pinafore.
I’ve sewn this pippi in beautiful rust coloured Robert Kaufman corduroy from @guthrieghani. It hasn’t got any drape so I wasn’t sure if it would work ok for the pippi, but I loved the rich autumnal colour and I know the quality of Robert Kaufman wovens so I thought I’d give it a go and it’s worked out pretty well.
One of my favourite things about this pinafore is how pretty it is on the inside 😊 I had just enough liberty tana lawn scraps from my avid seamstress blouse for the bodice and pocket linings of the pinafore 🙌 Swipe for a photo of the inside.
I made a size 8 based on my waist measurement and I added an inch to the bodice length and I’m happy with how this sizing has turned out.
I love all the details of the pippi and I think this make will slot into my winter wardrobe really well.
