Waves & Wild Penelope Pinafore
£8.00 – £15.00
Buy the Penelope Pinafore sewing pattern from Waves & Wild. This is a relaxed pinafore dress with either 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 all your stuff!
A matching children’s version is available here.
