A Pinafore Pattern by Imagine Gnats

I was one of the lucky ladies asked to pattern test a new pinafore pattern by Rachael at Imagine Gnats. Oh. Emm. Gee. I couldn't say "yes" quickly enough. This pattern is adorable, and what's more, Clara LOVES it. She cried when I took it off her. I think she would sleep in it if I let her.

Pinafore

This pinafore pattern comes in a wide range of sizes and in PDF format. I loved being able to just print out patterns at home rather than waiting for them to arrive via mail. I made the size 1 pinafore which fit Maze, who wears an 18mo, like a glove. I think next time I will make her a size 2 since she's growing out of her clothes so quickly these days.

The pattern is versatile. I made mine reversible, but you could easily add length to make it a dress or follow one of the pocket patterns included to add a special place for your little lady to hide her treasures. As previously mentioned, there was a minor melt down involved in the taking off of the pinafore, so the other side didn't get photographed. It's a lovely burgundy with pink and red flowers from Cosmo Cricket. If you follow me on IG, you can see it there.

There is a small section where hand stitching the turn hole closed is mentioned. Me, being the lazy mama that I am, chose to ignore that direction and just topstitch around the whole garment. It worked like a dream!

  3. She is completely adorable, and so is the pinafore! I can definitely see why she didn't want to take it off. I have some of that butterfly print saved for a dress or something for Jill. I love how it isn't too girly!

  7. Ah! What a cutie. :) I can see why she didn't want to change. It also seems like a really functional piece of clothing for a toddler. Is is reversible?
