Merchant and Mills - The Whittaker - PRINTED

A classic pinafore for work and play. With a buttoned side fastening, side and back pockets. Make it long with a back split or short just below the knee. Accentuate the detailing with contrast top stitching or keep it simple with matching thread.

This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm, unless otherwise stated.

Suitable fabrics:
+ medium weight wovens such as Nani-Iro linen/cotton twill, cotton twill or canvas, Alabama Chanin medium weight cotton jersey held double, denim, or Naturally Dyed Khadi herringbone.

+ heavy weight denim, such as Sally Fox Fabric 13oz denim.  When using heavy weight denim, please use a denim sewing machine needle and follow the Merchant & Mills included instructions for working with heavier fabric.

+ for a one-of-a-kind pinafore, you could natural dye Waterford Linen, use Batik fabric, or use Sally Fox Fabric French Terry.

Facings can be made from the same fabric as the main pinafore option or a light weight, decorative fabric when using heavier weight fabrics for the main garment.

Zoe sewed the size 8 (finished measurements: Bust 40", Hip 46.3") out of Nani-Iro linen/cotton twill in Formen 1B.  She used 3 1/4 yards total of the twill for both the main pattern pieces and the lining. Both Zoe and Kristine are modelling the same dress. Zoe's measurements are: Bust 38", Waist 34”, Hip 43". Kristine's measurements are: Bust 36", Waist 32”, Hip 41".

To complete this pattern, in addition to the fabric and pattern, you will need:
+ matching thread
+ contrast thread for top stitching (optional)
+ 1 y of fusible interfacing 
+ 8 x 5/8" buttons
