Sew Different: Scoop Pinafore

This knee-length pullover jumper has a square neckline and wide straps that connect to the back panel. The front and back panels are lined. The sides have semicircular insets, which form the two large side-front pockets. The pinafore tapers below the hip to a 7-inch-deep hem band. The pattern’s cutting lines are color-coded by size. The garment is meant to be pulled on over the head, but the finished garment measurements make this difficult. A center-back closure, such as an invisible zipper, may be needed for ease in dressing. The pockets are sewn into a curve and connect with several seams, which may be challenging for a beginner sewer. Some of the instructions are on the pattern pieces. Good fabric choices are midweight denim, corduroy, and twill.

(Sized US 4–22 [UK 8–26] for busts 33–50.25 in. and hips 36.25–52.5 in.)


—Tested by Jenny Freedman, Soquel, California
