A paper sewing pattern by UK Indie pattern company Sew Different.
We're excited to now be stocking Sew Different sewing patterns! We love the timeless chic of these patterns, they're fresh and classy and great to work with.
The Scoop Pinafore is a casual over-the-head tunic designed to wear over a top.
The statement square neckline contrasts with the scooped sides, which house large and comfy pockets.
The skirt has a slight bubble hem and sits just above the knee (for a 5 ft 8" height).
The bodice only is lined. No zip or closures needed.
SUGGESTED FABRICS: Most mid-weight fabrics such as cotton, linen, denim, corduroy, velvet, wool, double knit.
150cm / 60” WIDE: 2 m (2 yds)
112cm / 45” WIDE: 2.5 m (2.75 yds) Cut across the grain, so this width is NOT suitable for fabrics with a nap, such as velvet.
If you make a contrast side panel you'll need 0.5 m (1/2 yd) of the contrast fabric and the same less of the main fabric.
Lining: 0.5 m (1/2 yd)
You'll also need 1.25 m of bias binding.
