Buy the Baby/Child Tui Pinafore sewing pattern from Below the Kōwhai. Creating a nostalgic look that nods to a simple childhood, this well-fitting pinafore dress features an elastic back waistband, fully lined bodice, in-seam pockets and a gathered patch pocket.

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?

Note if ordering copy shop printing: Your print out will not include the gathered patch pocket, which is print-at-home only. The patch pocket prints on one A4/US letter page (though you may need to print the page twice depending on size, as the two pattern pieces overlap).

Lining: Light weight cotton, poly cotton, voile, lawn, etc.
