Pinafore dress pattern for toddlers and girls, PDF with Video Tutorial

Pinafore PDF Sewing Pattern - Mimi

A pinafore is a classic pattern you will just want to add to your collection. It runs from age 1-2 to 12 years of age.

This pattern includes 3 zip files. For American and Canadian customers please download the letter format, everybody else please download the A4 format. For German customers there is a German version in DIN A4. The file comes as a zip file. If you are unable to open it, I will send you the file via email.

Your girl will love this dress which can be worn all year round. It's very easy to make and uses no difficult techniques. It is fully lined so no serger is necessary to create this stunning pinafore. It has side pockets with a trim or the much loved Megan patch pocket and as a bonus the cutest baby bird appliqué. Of cause you can put other designs on as well.

I would dress this one with colorful tights and a long sleeved turtle neck t-shirt in the winter and autumn. Then your girl will be comfortable as well as fashionable.

I have updated this pattern significantly adding a slender fit option, division lines to help you get really creative and of course the all important video instructions. The E-Book is already brimming with tips and plainly written instructions with both diagrams and photographs. As a beginner you can't go wrong with this pattern.

Check out all 4 new videos from introduction to making and you will absolutely love the detail and expertise. Just copy and paste the link into the browser and it will take you to the playlist:

The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away.

None of my patterns are multi sized, so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.

The pattern pack includes: • A pattern in PDF format ready to print on regular A4 / letter size paper with assembly instructions • Detailed step by step instructions • Detailed video instructions on You Tube including an introduction, sewing instuctions and two short videos showing you how to split a pattern.

No serger is required to make this dress.

If you want to reproduce this dress for your own small business I would be delighted. Please note that the patterns I design are not to be used for larger scale production.
