Rickey // Women's Pinafore Jumper Dress Sewing Pattern

The Rickey Pinafore is a minimalist take on the utility trend. Wear it in summer over a tshirt, or layer it up in winter with leggings and books. In sturdy plain fabrics it’s a wardrobe staple, and in bright patterns it’s a statement piece. No one will believe you made this yourself!

The Rickey Pinafore is a waisted miniskirt design with an attached bib. It features a patch pocket on the bib, two more on the bum, and an easy centred zipper in the back.

Skill Level: This pinafore is recommended for beginner to intermediate sewers. It comes together quickly and has detailed instructions. You should have a good understanding of your machine.

This women's sewing pattern is recommended for sturdy woven fabrics. Canvas, denim, corduroy or chambray are all good options, or lighter fabrics like lawn, broadcloth, or jacquard. Advanced sewers could try leather or suede. Not recommended for high-stretch or knitted fabrics.
