 OLIVE PINAFORE

Olive pinafore, a Mary Quant-inspired design that's a great layering piece. Olive has a gently curved V-neckline, mini hemline and double-pointed waist darts at the front and back for a flattering shape. Wear it over your sweaters, t-shirts, or even a pretty collared blouse.

FABRIC SUGGESTION

Pick a medium- to heavy-weight woven fabric that will hold the shape of the pinafore without feeling too stiff around the armholes. Try denim, corduroy, cotton canvas, drill, African waxed cotton or lighter-weight wool. If you're a confident stitcher, you could also go for (woven) velvet or even pleather or faux suede!

If your fabric is on the heavier side, use a medium-weight cotton for the facing (this is a great way of using up scraps from other projects).

Sizes 1-6 (UK 6-16 / US 2-12): 1.7m (1 7/8yd) fabric
