How to turn the Patsy overalls into a pinafore

list In Alterations & Pattern hackings On

Today’s post is all about drafting a pinafore starting from the Patsy overalls. It is surprisingly simple to draft (and sew) — you will be wearing your new garment before you know it ! - Cut the back pattern piece (B) on the shorten/lengthen line (this will give you a mid-tigh length).

- Keep the top part only.

- Continue the center back line and cut off the crotch.

- Add the hem allowance (around 5 cm) the bigger the hem is the nicer the pinafore will look ;-)

- Make sure to report all markings (back dart, grain line and pocket placement).

The back piece (B) will still be cut x2 but if you don't want a back seam, you can always take the 1 cm seam allowance from the center back and cut the piece on fold.

- Repeat all steps fror the front piece (F)

The front piece (F) will be cut x2

- Repeat all steps for the front piece (D)

The front piece (D) will be cut x2

You now have all your pattern pieces ready for toiling to check the fit. Happy sewing!

J'ai réalisé ma robe salopette Patsy en suivant ce tutoriel et c'est parfait. Je vais la porter tout l'été.
