Alternative to the Pippi Pinafore

A review of Dulcie Pinafore


Reviewed by Abida Mian on 15th November, 2020

I previously reviewed the Pippi Pinafore by Jennifer Lauren handmade and I really loved the quirky design for summer. Jennifer’s latest pinafore pattern is much better suited to wear to the office with jumpers underneath now that the weather is getting colder. The fitting is not as tight as the Pippi, but that is a good thing as it means plenty of room to fit a jumper underneath.

I went for the UK size 6 and A cup sewing pattern, it fitted just right – not too tight or too loose. Only thing I would change is making it a bit shorter in length (currently just above the knee) as wearing tights you can get away with it.

The fabric chosen was liberty cord in Star Anise print and the bodice was lined with Star Anise tana lawn, with the skirt lined in a navy bemberg cupro fabric to prevent it riding up when wearing over tights.

Lovely pattern would definitely recommend.
