Yes. It’s another York Pinafore.

I figure that this is York Pinafore number five for me.  It won’t be the last.

This version is sewn in greenish stretch denim from Super Cheap Fabrics. I knew this fabric would be perfect for this pinafore! The fabric was given to me in exchange for this blog post, along with the offer of a discount code for my blog readers. If you use the code Thornberry-10 at the checkout you’ll get 10% off your entire order.

In many ways there’s not much to be said about this pattern that hasn’t been said before. I have shortened it a little through the upper body at the shorten/lengthen lines. I like to keep the armholes scooped quite low, but I have a pretty short torso. I’ve also shortened the length a couple of inches.

The tee underneath is the Maria Denmark Olivia Oversize tee. You’ve seen that pattern on this blog plenty of times too. I was working with a restricted amout of fabric, which has completely dictated the sleeve length. I made sure that I gave the neckband additional stretch when I attached it around the centre front curve, and it sits flat just as it should.

I have a fantasy of sewing this pinafore in linen to wear over rib tanks in summer – then I realised that I don’t wear tanks! Maybe that will stay a fantasy. Maybe over tees. One of the things that I particularly like about this pinafore is that it’s like wearing a skirt, but without a waistband. That’s a huge tick.
