A versatile little dress pattern that can be sewn as a pinafore in the winter or as a summer dress. All views feature a full gathered skirt with elasticated side waist & in-seam pockets (for size 2yr & above). View A has button or snap fastenings at the shoulders while views B&C have a single button & split at the back neck. View C is the same as view B, but with an added ruffle around the bodice.

Size range: 9-12m - 8yr

Ability level: View A =  Beginner, View B = Advanced beginner, View C = Intermediate

Sewing techniques involved - sewing a channel at the side waist for the elastic, sewing in-seam pockets, bagging out the self-lined neckline & armholes (view A method is quite straight forward, while views B & C uses the burrito method). The rest of the garment is made up of straight stitching, gathering & overlocking.

This is quite a good style for those without an overlocker. The side seams & pocket bags can be french seamed while the rest of the garment is bagged out. The elastic channel & hem are double neatened for a clean finish (though they can be overlocked and stitched if you are looking for an easier construction). Please note that french seams are not covered in the sewing instructions.

Trims required: 30mm wide elastic (approx 0.3m/0.35yd), 2x 15mm/24L buttons or 4pc snaps (view A only), 1x 10m/16L button (views B & C only)

View A shown as a flat lay with a grey Parker Top is made from a winter-weight cotton blend tweed.

View A in mid-grey gingham is a linen/spandex, size 4. Worn with our Parker Top made from a 100% cotton jersey, size 4. Both are a really nice fit on an above average sized 4 year old.

View B shown below in pink/white spot linen & in gauva-pink mid-weight linen is size 4. Model is 4.25 years and around the 75th percentile for weight & height.

View C is made from lightweight pink linen & a lightweight striped cotton.
