Casual meets practical with the Pippi dress pattern by Jennifer Lauren Handmade. This dress has a relaxed fit around the waist and hips. and when paired with a fitted knit Gable or your favourite shirt, you’ll be ready for a weekend away in the woods or your favourite weekend brunch spot.

Straps cross over the back and fasten to the bib using your choice of overall hardware or buttons (depending on what you have in your stash). And deep, curved patch pockets make sure you have room for everything you might need throughout the day. Pippi is perfect for those who like the bib-style pinafore dress, but want more shaping around the bust for a better fit.

Recommended Fabric:  Pippi has you covered year round – made up in chambray or linen and you’ll be summer ready. And when winter temperatures hit, choose wool, corduroy or denim for the perfect dress.

Fabric with structure and some drape work best, but stiffer fabrics will lend a more defined quality to your Pippi Pinafore.
