With a fitted bib, deep patch pockets and fun side button fastening, Pippi is a fresh take on the classic overall dress, combining comfort with a sleek and playful silhouette.


The Details

The Pippi Pinafore will become your favourite go-to weekend dress. Darts and gently curved sides shape the bib, creating a flattering silhouette for multiple bust sizes. The pleated front skirt and side button placket create a relaxed look while also stepping your sewing repertoire up a few notches.

Straps cross over the back and fasten to the bib using your choice of overall hardware or buttons (depending on what you have in your stash). And deep, curved patch pockets make sure you have room for everything you might need throughout the day.

Casual meets practical with a relaxed fit around the waist and hips, and when paired with a fitted knit Gable or Ostara top, or your favourite shirt, you'll be ready for a weekend away in the woods or for your favourite weekend brunch spot.


Multiple Bust Cups

Pippi is perfect for those who like the bib-style pinafore dress, but want more shaping around the bust for a flattering fit. With cup sizes A to D included, you'll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.

Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements, as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.


Pair Pippi with a short sleeved Gable Top for a cool, handmade summer outfit. 

If winter is coming your way, making your Pippi Pinafore in wool and pairing it with a long sleeved Ostara Top, will keep you cosy and warm over the colder months.


Skill Level

Pippi is a perfect project for the adventurous beginner seamstress and beyond.

Learn techniques like top-stitching, constructing a side button fastening and attaching patch pockets.


Fabric Options

Pippi has you covered year round - made up in chambray or linen and paired with your favourite t-shirt, you'll be summer ready. And when winter temperatures hit, choose wool, corduroy or denim for the perfect dress layered over tights and boots.

Fabric with structure and some drape work best, but stiffer fabrics will lend a more defined quality to your Pippi Pinafore.

Lining Fabric:

The bib, waistband and button band are all lined pieces - it's important to choose a light-weight lining to help keep bulky seams to a minimum (especially if you have heavier weight fabric in mind). Cotton lawn, voile and poplin make great options, as do quilting cottons when using a lighter weight fabric for your main garment.



The Layers Function

Both Print-at-Home and Print Shop Pippi pattern files now include the Layers Function.

You can choose to turn on and off any number and combination of pattern sizes to suit your personal needs and preferences. Check out page 3 of your Pippi instructions for a full step-by-step tutorial on using this handy little function.





Purchase Pippi!

You can now purchase the Pippi Pinafore pattern for $12.99USD. Links to your Pippi Pinafore will be emailed directly to you. You'll be able to choose from the easy-to-assemble A4/Letter version OR the A0/Print Shop version (or both!).






I'd love to hear how you're getting along making your Pippi Pinafore, so why not tag me on instagram or use the hashtag #PippiPinafore so I can see and share your makes!

Hello everyone!


Just a quick post today to let you all know that I've opened up my Pattern Testing group for sign ups again. It's been just over a year since I did the last one, so it's time for a refresh :)

I don't like having a massive testing group because my inbox always gets a little stressful around testing time - it's hard to keep up.  So if you want to be a tester, I'd suggest signing up ASAP, as I have a feeling that the group will fill up pretty quickly (previous testers had first dibs on signing up again, so it's already pretty full).




Looking forward to sharing some new and exciting patterns with you soon,

xx

Today, I'm showing you how I insert and secure the pleats for the sweetheart neckline for View 2 of the Ostara Top.

You can choose to stack your pleats on top of each other (depending on how thick/slippery your fabric is) or you can off-set them slightly.

I have off-set my sample versions by about 3mm (1/8") from each other, but feel free to play around with this to suit you and your tastes. If you stitch your neckline in and don't like how it's looking, simply unpick it (leaving your pleat markings in place) and try again.

To see how it's done, watch the video below (I've also included a few static close up images in case that's useful).


You'll Need:


Steps:

Inserting the Sweetheart Neckline for The Ostara Top - YouTube




I think this step is really about taking your time and experimenting with the look of the neckline. You also don't have to use all of the markings (leave the last one off for a shallower neckline).

Let me know if this was helpful!

I released The Ostara Top just a little over a week ago and I've been seeing some gorgeous versions popping up around the internet.

One of the things I promised was a tutorial on how I insert the markings for the sweetheart neckline (as well as how I permanently stitch the neckline in, but that will be coming at the end of the week!). Before you remove your front paper pattern piece from your cut out fabric, you'll need to mark the notches along the centre front fold. For a shallower neckline, you can just mark the top three notches.

I've made a little video, as well written up a full tutorial with photos below. You can definitely do things your own way, but this is how I like to do it - I hope it helps!


You'll need:
  • Your Ostara Top Front Pattern Piece
  • Needle & contrast thread
  • Scissors or thread snips


Steps:

Tailor's Tacks for The Ostara Top - YouTube

1. Take your needle and thread and at the first notch, insert your needle into the centre front fold, you only need a tiny bit of fabric for this.


2. Pull your needle through, leaving a tail.


3. Go back through the stitch you just made, making a loop at the centre front fold.


4. Pull your needle through, leaving the tack loose-ish and trim your thread off leaving a tail. Repeat for remaining tacks.


This is a easy and quick way to mark your sweetheart notches, plus, they won't go any where until you need them.

The Juniper Cardigan was the latest pattern to be reviewed in the Pattern of the Month review series that I've been running.

There are so many wonderful creations, and they're all so different — from modern colour blocked long-line Junipers to stunning bright red cropped versions that wouldn't look out of place on an old Hollywood movie set.

There are also plenty of little tips in each review as well if you're thinking about adding a Juniper to your handmade wardrobe, so make sure you click through to read the reviews in full.  Oh, and I did a full Juniper Cardigan Sew Along in case you're interested :)

I'm taking a small break from the Pattern of the Month this month as I tie up a few little loose ends here and there. There should be a new one of these in a couple of months though, and if you've been wanting to join the group, keep an eye out, as I'll be opening it up again soon :)


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






I am having a dusty-pink moment at the moment (having nearly finished my Wainthropp cardi in just that colour) and this amazing cropped Juniper by Wis really has my heart singing.

With the addition of the contrast plaid, I'm planning to somehow raid Wis's wardrobe so I can have a turn wearing this beautiful Juniper. Planning my trip across the world as we speak...


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Elly made both versions of Juniper, a fun springy (dusty!) pink cropped version and a stunning, long-line quilted black version.

I love the pop of colour the buttons lend to Elly's black version, and I love that she chose to button it all the way down. It really changes the silhouette of the long-line version, and it's an easy adjustment to make (just add extra buttons!!).


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Everyone needs a cropped Little Black Cardigan in their wardrobe, right?! And when made from a ribbed fabric (or quilted like Elly's above), it really elevates the piece and gives it some subtle interest. 

Plus, the stripes on the saddle shoulders will run horizontally across the shoulder, adding even more perfect detail. Add some shiny jet black buttons and you have the perfect wardrobe staple. 


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





Sharon's fabric choice is just stunning! I love how she has styled her long-line Juniper with slim-fitting pants. I know I usually tend toward vintage-styles, but Sharon has really showed how modern you can make the Juniper silhouette.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of Sharon's Juniper cardigans with additional pockets (which you can download for free here).


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Donna has gone one step further and turned her long-line Juniper into the perfect robe! Just add a little waist belt and you're done. And made up in a rib, you can really see the saddle shoulder detail: subtle but perfect.

I don't know why I hadn't thought of this, but Juniper made up in a cosy merino with some flannel pj's is just about the cosiest outfit I can think of right now.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -







Now that autumn has nearly settled in down here, I know I'll be craving bright colours and handmade clothes that lift the soul. Maider's Juniper is just what the doctor ordered.

Made from soft velour and with a contrast burnt orange waistband and sleeve cuffs (and paired with a little crab decorated dress!!) you can't not feel happy in the depths of winter.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





Jodi went for classic greys when choosing her fabric combination. All three tones complement each other perfectly and show off the design lines in the cardigan so well.

Also, Jodi's is another gorgeous example of a modern take on Juniper. This is definitely one of the things that excites me most about these reviews — seeing how people can take one of my 'vintage inspired' patterns and make it modern simply with colour choice.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Angelica's Juniper is going to be such a pretty garment in spring — especially when paired with a full skirted fit & flare dress like the one she's wearing in these photos.

I'm so looking forward to seeing Angelica's rainbow of Junipers, I would very much heart that 


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





I've seen this Michael Miller fabric around and have been eyeing up a length for myself (I shared a beautiful Gable Dress by Emily made up in this exact fabric on Instagram a few months ago...) and I was so pleased when I saw Vanessa use it to make her cropped Juniper.

I love the contrast of the pink button bands, cuffs and waist band, and the addition of the pink snap buttons really do just top it off.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





Even though Lise didn't end up being a fan of the fabric she chose, I love how it looks in pictures! The subtle shimmer of the threads really does catch your eye and you can see that there is something different about the shoulder line, so it draws you in to have a closer look.

I can't wait to see the grey wool jersey version Lise has in mind (when she finds the perfect fabric. If you know of any, leave a link in the comments, I'm sure Lise would be very grateful!)


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


It's getting cold down here now, and after seeing all of these amazing Juniper Cardigans, I think I might need to lock myself away in my sewing room for a bit and whip up another for the chilly mornings ahead...

With a sweeping U-shaped or delicately pleated sweetheart neckline, The Ostara Top is the prettiest wardrobe essential you always knew you needed.


The Details

Ostara's classic and comfortable silhouette is the perfect base layer for any outfit. Flattering elbow-length or long sleeves will take you from day to night, through all of the seasons of the year.

The elegant wide set neckline is designed to keep bra straps covered, whether you choose to keep it simple with the U-shaped neckline or go a little more nostalgic with the sweetheart neckline.

Made with stretch knits, The Ostara Top is the ultimate 40s-inspired dressy t-shirt - hugging your body in all the right places for a flattering and comfortable fit.





Skill Level

Ostara is a great pattern for confident beginners. The U-neckline eases you into sewing with knits, and the sweetheart neckline lets you extend the pattern base with a few extra steps.

Note: Video tutorials on adding Tailor's Tacks specific to Ostara, as well as inserting neckline pleats for the sweetheart neckline, will be available in a few weeks.


Fabric Options

Look for lightweight knit fabrics with good recovery. Knits should have a minimum of 40% stretch as Ostara has in-built negative ease, particularly across the bust.

When using a fabric with 40% stretch, Ostara will fit bust cups A to D.

The Ostara Top was drafted using a 95% cotton 5% lycra spandex knit with a weight of 180GSM (grams per square metre).


The Layers Function

Both Print-at-home and Print Shop Ostara pattern files now include the Layers Function.

You can choose to turn on and off any number and combination of pattern sizes to suit your personal needs and preferences. Check out page 3 of your Ostara instructions for a full step-by-step tutorial on using this handy little function.




Purchase Ostara!

You can purchase your very own Ostara Top sewing pattern for just $11 USD directly from my shop using the button below.


Links to your Ostara Top pattern will be emailed directly to you. You'll be able to choose from the easy-to-assemble A4/Letter version OR the A0/Print Shop version (or both!).

I'd love to see your Ostara tops in action, tag me on Instagram or use the hashtag #OstaraTop so I can see and share your makes.

Hope you like the new pattern :)

The latest pattern in my little pattern review experiment was the Mayberry Dress! A twist on the classic shirtwaist dress with a comfy drawstring waistband, asymmetrical button band with three sleeve options and multiple bust cups (from A to D).

It's always so exciting and inspiring to see how others interpret a pattern, so without further ado...


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -







I'm a sucker for anything blue, so when I saw Meg's stunning 3/4 sleeved Mayberry I was instantly in love. The dark navy buttons really draw attention to the asymmetrical button band.

Meg added 2" to the bodice and skirt length (usual alterations for her) and I can just see Meg swishing about in the warm Florida weather in this gorgeous Mayberry Dress.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Jess blends cool casual vibes with utter sophistication in her gorgeous 3/4 sleeve Mayberry. And did you see those buttons?!

While Mayberry's silhouette leans more to the side of casual, with careful fabric consideration, Jess proves that you can definitely make it work-wear appropriate, blending style and comfort.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Leigh is definitely not a clueless seamstress in her beautifully soft & drapey Mayberry (thanks to her choice of the viscose twill - even if it was a nightmare to work with!).

Like a few others I've seen, Leigh opted to make a channel in the sleeve and insert elastic (Mayberry is drafted with a narrow cuff). I think this is a brilliant idea and makes the dress even more secretly comfortable. Add some little white buttons and you've got the perfect wintery dress.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





I'm a huge fan of using multiple fabrics in one garment. It makes it completely unique to you and your handmade wardrobe, and means that you can use some of those smaller bits of fabric to mix and match to your heart's content.

This is exactly what Rebecca did. Cutting the front and sleeves in plain black really makes the bright bird fabric pop. Rebecca also opted to use elastic for her waistband - an easy adjustment to make by replacing the drawstring.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Well, I might be biased, but I do think Mayberry makes a great Christmas dress (dressy yet casual, and you can let it out at the end of the day when you might need a little extra waist room) and Argryo's Mayberry is no exception.

I love her use of a thin cord as the drawstring and the colour is perfect, off set with light blue buttons.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Amy opted to omit the button band for a completely different look to her Mayberry dress, which I love!

The neckline is plenty wide enough to do this without having to adjust the current neckline. So if button holes aren't your thing, you can either copy Amy and omit the buttons completely or top-stitch the neckline down as-is and add buttons for a faux-functional button band.

Add short sleeves and a gorgeous drapey floral fabric and you're ready for spring (or summer!).


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






A beauty in blue! If you want to see Mayberry in action, make sure you watch Akram's video (linked in her post) where she talks about stitching up Mayberry. This was Akram's last make of 2017 and I'm so excited to see she has a second one cut out already.

Akram used a beautiful floaty fabric, and even though it was a little hard to cut (slippery fabrics are gorgeous to look at, but can be immensely annoying to work with!), I think we can all agree that the results are gorgeous.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Rhonda is a lady after my own heart with that gorgeous 3/4 sleeved cat dress!

I was so happy to get an email from Rhonda telling me she had made two Mayberry's in quick succession. She didn't receive Mayberry as a review copy, but after making and wearing them, she wanted to let me know I could add her versions to the round up (thanks Rhonda!).

As well as her cat-dress, Rhonda also made a breezy short sleeve version - and after the weather we've been having over the last few days, a summer Mayberry dress is definitely in need over here.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -







Another stunning fabric choice with a Mayberry in long sleeves, and a set of teal coloured buttons setting off the bodice.

Aude used a slightly thicker viscose fabric, so she altered the side seams and decreased the seam allowance to make her arm holes fit more comfortably. Other than that, the dress is made as is and it really is gorgeous.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





Another Christmas Mayberry! And this time in bright Christmas red with some hand-knitted socks to boot (can you believe how gorgeous those socks are though?!).


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -







One of my goals this year is to stash bust - I think I do a pretty good job in general, but Lori has definitely inspired me with her stash-buster Mayberry Dress.

Lori made the bulk of the dress from some rayon she already had, the contrast cuffs & piping from an old Ikea curtain (!!), facings from an old bedsheet and then topped it off with buttons from her Mum's stash. You'd definitely be forgiven for thinking it was all planned and bought specifically for making her Mayberry.

Definite #goals.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Suzy is wearing 70s perfection! Isn't it so amazing how different a dress can look when you make it in something completely unexpected. With plain black buttons so that you can still see the asymmetrical button band, this dress subtle while at the same time completely mesmerising.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -






Sylvia is looking super cool and cosy in her linen blend Mayberry! And you guys all know how much I love little details - I can't resist pointing out her handmade floral bias binding drawstring. I have that fabric in the blue colour way (that I used to make a Hunter Tank) and it's such a pretty fabric.

There is no way that you cannot smile when you put something like that on. I can't wait to see the long sleeved flannel version she has planned for winter.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -





This Mayberry reminds me of a warm red wine (stay with me here)... If you could wear red wine, this is what it would look like. Soft, floaty and the colour of autumn. Yes?

What you may not have noticed (and what makes the dress absolutely amazing - it's all in the details!) is Susan's use of toggles to draw the waistband in. Isn't that genius?! I can't believe I never thought of this - next Mayberry, I'm doing this.
