historic sewing patterns
One item that should absolutely be in your young child’s wardrobe is a pinafore… or four.
However, we refuse to sell you the pattern.
(Wow–even the little fellow in the picture looks a bit dubious at that statement!)
It’s true! We won’t sell you one… but we’ll give you three for free, plus variations.
Pop over to the Compendium, scroll down, and you’ll find our free pinafore projects. You can use checks, plaids, prints, or even plain white cotton to make a pinafore (or four!) for your little one.
They work up quickly, require minimal sewing, and extend your child’s wardrobe tremendously. If you have a limited budget, or limited time, you’ll be better off making one dress and three pinafores than trying to finish three dresses, and your child will stay tidy through a multi-day event without a problem.
If you’re looking for our undergarment or dress patterns, we’ll be glad to sell you those… click here!
