Ivy Pinafore Sew Along
The Ivy Pinafore & Skirt pattern is so versatile. This sewing pattern was inspired by the vintage pinafore patterns from the the 1940's, with a modern twist.
This pattern offers both optional inseam pockets or fun patch pockets and can be made as a high waisted skirt or with the pinafore bib (which is shaped for your bust, so it fits nicely).

With the gentle A-line flare of the hem, this is a great wardrobe basic to add into your #MeMade wardrobe.
With two views, you can really change up the look of this pattern from a girly and casual pinafore to a more subdued skirt that can be dressed up or down.
Depending on the fabric you use, you can create very different looks without having to change much.
Though, you can hack the pattern easily and we are just loving this pattern hack to add in some ruffles for a spring and summer pinafore. Ruffles are great with all things girly!
We also offer an inclusive size range for the pattern that runs from a 33" bust to a 51" bust, and from a 25" waist to a 46" waist, and from 35" hips to 55" hips.
As this is an A-line skirt, it is so easy to shorten or lengthen and love the idea of making it a full length version of the dress.
There is also optional boning placed in the waistband for added structure of the skirt. As it is meant to fit high-waisted, the boning adds support when you sit and move, ensuring your skirt band maintains its shape all day.
When worn without a blouse underneath, this pinafore dress pattern makes for the perfect summer dress!
This is a beginner friendly sewing project and has step-by-step video tutorial on how to sew it up if you learn better by watching than reading.
You also have the option to make the straps adjustable with buttons and buttonholes so you can get that perfect fit on your pinafore pattern.
We are really liking the oversized patch pockets that can really hold a lot of stuff. How many times have you tried to fit your phone in your pocket and it either won't fit or falls out?
As this is an A-line skirt pattern, you can have a lot of fun matching up stripes and plaids on this one - and even playing around with the direction of the stripes and plaids with relation to the waistband - skirt and bib would be really fun to piece together.
How about making your skirt a bit shorter and in a light airy fabric, like a poplin or a chambray? That would be the perfect skirt for spring and summer!
