Jennifer Lauren – The Pippi Pinafore

The Pippi Pinafore Sewing Pattern by Jennifer Lauren

With a fitted bib, deep patch pockets and fun side button fastening, Pippi is a fresh take on the classic overall dress, combining comfort with a sleek and playful silhouette.

The Details

The Pippi Pinafore will become your favourite go-to weekend dress. Darts and gently curved sides shape the bib, creating a flattering silhouette for multiple bust sizes. The pleated front skirt and side button placket create a relaxed look while also stepping your sewing repertoire up a few notches.

Straps cross over the back and fasten to the bib using your choice of overall hardware or buttons (depending on what you have in your stash). And deep, curved patch pockets make sure you have room for everything you might need throughout the day.

Casual meets practical with a relaxed fit around the waist and hips. and when paired with a fitted knit Gable or Ostara top, or your favourite shirt, you’ll be ready for a weekend away in the woods or your favourite weekend brunch spot.

Multiple Bust Cups

Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements, as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.

Skill Level

Pippi is a perfect project for the adventurous beginner seamstress and beyond.

Learn techniques like top-stitching, constructing a side button fastening and attaching patch pockets.

Fabric Options

Pippi has you covered year round – made up in chambray or linen and paired with your favourite t-shirt,you’ll be summer ready. And when winter temperatures hit, choose wool, corduroy or denim for the perfect dress layered over tights and boots.

Fabric with structure and some drape work best, but stiffer fabrics will lend a more defined quality to your Pippi Pinafore.

Lining Fabric:
The bib, waistband and button band are all lined pattern pieces – it’s important to choose a light-weight lining to keep bulky seams to a minimum (especially if you have a heavier weight fabric in mind). Cotton lawn, voile and poplin make great options, as do quilting cottons when using a lighter weight fabric for your main garment.

Sew Over It 1940s Wrap Dress

Sew Over It – 1940s Wrap Dress Dress by Lisa Comfort

A stunning, vintage-inspired woven wrap dress with a wearable contemporary feel, the 1940’s Wrap Dress is a gem from the Sew Over It archives. Stylish, sophisticated and elegant, you can wear this dressed up or down, perfect for both daytime and evening.

The 1940’s Wrap Dress features a wrap front bodice with a front collar and pretty shoulder pleats. The bodice gathers into the uniquely-shaped pointed waistband, and the dress closes with hidden buttons or press studs. The slightly A-line wrap skirt is flattering on all shapes, and the narrow sleeves mean you can pair this dress with your favourite jumper or cardi. Both the sleeves and skirt come with a choice of two different lengths.

The 1940’s Wrap Dress is designed for intermediate to advanced sewers who have experience of making fitted garments, and working with fabrics with drape.

Sew Over It Doris Dress

Sew Over It – Doris Dress Dress by Lisa Comfort

The Doris Dress is the perfect summer’s day dress. Feminine and romantic, throw it on and you’ll be set for that picnic in the park, day out at the beach, or hey, even a stint at the office. A truly versatile wardrobe staple, the Doris Dress will keep you looking elegant and put-together no matter what you get up to this season.

Inspired by Lisa’s love of vintage 1950’s fashion and pretty feminine shapes, the Doris Dress is semi-fitted with a flattering scooped neck bodice, bust pleats for delicate shaping and floaty grown-on sleeves. The waist can be left unfitted for warmer days, or cinched in at the back with the attached ties or fixed back belt.

The fluted panelled skirt has two length variations – short and cute above the knee, or an elegant below the knee option. The Doris Dress closes with a concealed zip in the side seam and has an optional buttonhole closure at the centre front. The bodice is finished with facings for a neat finish on the inside.

Due to the number of techniques covered, the Doris Dress is an intermediate level sewing pattern.

The pattern has both a sleeved and sleeveless version as well as endless fabric options, meaning there is tonnes of scope to make this dress your own. Ever versatile, you can even go two-tone and make the bodice in one fabric and the skirt in another to give the impression of separates.

With modern body sizing and revised shaping, the Vintage Shirt Dress has been updated to give it a contemporary feel, while the sweet notched collar gives it a vintage edge. A fantastic techniques-filled pattern, practise creating pleats, sewing a collar, adding facings and stitching buttonholes while you create your dress.
