Buy the Baby/Child Penny Pinny sewing pattern from Waves & Wild. The Penny Pinny is a relaxed pinafore dress with tie straps (which don’t need undoing to take the garment on and off) or traditional buckles. There are two lengths – mini to sit above the knee, and midi to cover the knee – and a back split can be added to both lengths. There are also FIVE pockets for hiding lots of stuff!

A matching women’s version is available here.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: Medium weight woven fabric such as corduroy, denim or linen. Fabrics with a little stretch will create the most comfortable dress but non-stretch fabrics can be used.
