Primary Pinafore and Blouse a Design by Ellie Inspired

Back to school sewing continues, and today I have a sweet little pinafore to show off! Its a new pattern from Ellie Inspired. I'll have a couple more to show you through the week. The Primary Pinafore has a classic look, perfect for school uniforms. See what gorgeous patterns are available in their Etsy shop and some older patterns have been upsized!

I must have posted in the past few weeks that my little JubeJube will be starting kindergarten. I remember as a child I loved back to school for  all the fun new outfits I got to wear. Some were store bought but a lot of them were made by my aunt. One of my favorite ourfits was my classic grey skirt with pleats and white blouse with a grey pinstirpe. When I saw the pinafore it brought me back to my school days and how fun it woud be for her to have this fantasitc wardrobe of classic school clothes.

By the way, Laura from Ellie Inspired gave me a bundle of 3 patterns to giveaway to one reader! Thank you Laura! More details below so keep reading!

This is the test version of the pinafore, so it has undergone some adjustments. The length did stay the same however. The front features inverted pleats and the back has a zipper closure and its fully lined.
The blouse is buttoned down the front with a puffed sleeve and features a peter pan type collar. 

Some of the pattern details:
  • Size range from 1 - 16 
  • Easy to follow sewing instructions
  • Fully lined pinafore for beautiful structure
  • Advanced beginner (back zipper for the pinafore and buttons with buttons holes for the blouse)

Just in case you're keeping tabs, this is another one sewn from my stash, the plaid fabric was first featured here on my niece.

This is one smart looking outfit, if you want to make your own don't forget to enter the giveaway! Stay tuned, tomorrow I'll be showing you another pattern from the back to school collection by Ellie Inspired! Here are few other stops on this tour, go check them out!

Until next time, xx.
