A pinafore dress and top pattern to wear all year around
We are here to share with you some sewing inspiration for your Pinafore Dress and Top sewing pattern. And as usual, we have gathered lots of versions from our amazing team of CocoWawa testers (send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to become one next timeQ). This way you can get an idea of how the garment looks on different bodies and between both size ranges.
Are you ready for some seriously amazing sewing inspiration? Let's start!
Inspiration from testers
The lovely Ellen (@ellifolks_sews) made this beautiful version of the Pinafore dress in an amazing light grey linen fabric. I think it looks so so nice with a shirt underneath! Perfect for layering up all year around. She chose size 2 of the size range UK 6 / US 2 to UK 24 / US 20 (cup B).
Our amazing tester Sherizad (@sewsweetprints) has made not one, but two! Apricots. One dress and one top :) Both versions are so pretty and I love the fabrics she chose. Perfect for Spring! She used size 5 of the new size range UK 18 / US 14 to UK 36 / US 32 (cup D).
Sarah (@superbailles) went for the Pinafore dress version in this light blue cotton. I love how she added contrasting pockets and what about that cute bow to finish up her outfit? Sarah opted for size 6 of the new size range UK 18 / US 14 to UK 36 / US 32 (cup D).
The ever lovely Georgie (@heysewgeorgie) has made such a gorgeous version using this green double gauze fabric (from her shop! @heysewsister.co.uk). I adore the whole look. She went for size 3 of the size range UK 6 / US 2 to UK 24 / US 20 (cup B).
The beautiful Amelia (@amelia_ellen_sews_) has also made two! Apricot pinafore dresses :) One in corduroy (and mustard, of course) and another one in a darker fabric that she combined with a cute detachable Peter Pan collar. Amelia used size 3 of the size range UK 6 / US 2 to UK 24 / US 20 (cup B).
Lovely Ana (@la_artesana_ana), our Spanish tester, went for the top version of Apricot and she said she was already thinking of a dress option. She opted for the size EU 52 and cup B.
Lovely Emma (@sewdoitemma) always surprises me with her beautiful pictures and versions of the CocoWawa patterns :) She decided to make the top version in this cute spotty fabric. She was in between sizes within the new size range so she chose size 4 for her waist, 7 for the hips and 8 for the bodice and she graded accordingly between sizes.
Last, we've got the amazing maker Lena (@thatlenaking) who opted for the Pinafore dress in this super vibrant red fabric. I love how she layered it up for the last few weeks of Winter. She went for size 14 of the size range cup B.
Hope that you found some sewing inspiration after seeing so many beautiful versions of the pattern.
