Georgie Pinafore-The Details

The Georgie Pinafore is a classic semi-fitted wardrobe staple that has been updated to include modern elements like an exposed* zip and front patch pockets.

* If exposed zips aren’t your style, you can easily swap this out for your favourite type of zip, whether that’s a lapped zip, centred zip or invisible zip. Ample seam allowances are included for you to use any type of zip you like, with no pattern adjustments necessary – simply insert your chosen zip however you usually would.

The gentle rounded V neckline leads down to an exposed centre front zip with princess seam shaping over the bust for a smooth fit. Georgie’s shift dress silhouette includes light shaping through the waist, hips and back, with plenty of wearing ease for ultimate comfort during the day.

Make Georgie in a range of fabrics to suit your current season, from heavier wools, denim and corduroy for those in cooler climes, to heavier weight linen, lighter weight denim and barkcloth for a summer-ready pinafore.

Designed to be paired with light layers, Georgie is the perfect seasonal garment. Layer with long sleeves on cool days – Georgie is modelled here with the Gable Top, available in both the Original and Curve sizes with integrated cup sizes A to F.

For long summer weekends, style Georgie with a t-shirt underneath or nothing at all – the shoulders perfectly cover bra straps for warmer, non-layering days.

Pockets are incorporated into the front princess seam panel and the finished hem falls to just above the knee.

Place optional top-stitching around the neckline/zip/armscye and front/back  princess seams to give your Georgie Pinafore a more modern, utility look. Otherwise, leave seams clean for a 70s-style nod to mod.

Skill Level

Bastion is a fun sew, with interesting construction techniques. If you’re a confident beginner seamstress and love the look of Bastion, you will enjoy the challenge. Buttonholes and keeping track of important notches are the key skills required.

Of course, advanced seamstresses will  also enjoy the construction ad will have a lovely pair of pants in a day or so.

Fabric Options

Georgie is designed for Intermediate Seamstresses, though if you’re confident and looking to up-skill, Georgie could be perfect for learning a new technique or two.

Techniques include inserting an exposed zip (though you can use any type of zip here), constructing an all-in-one facing and sewing in princess seams.

A video tutorial will be available soon that will walk you through the best method for inserting an exposed zip. Other tutorials will take you through inserting an invisible zip and a lapped zip if that’s more your style.

Sizing and Fit

The Georgie Pinafore includes both the Original and Curve size ranges. The Original includes sizes 6-24 with A to D cup bodices, and the Curve includes sizes 16 to 34 with C to F cup bodices.

 

Plus, Extra Finished Garment Measurements included…

If you’re worried about choosing a size, I’ve also included a whole bunch of additional Finished Garment Measurements, from the standard bust, waist and hips to armscye circumference and back width.

Simply compare these measurements to a similar garment you already like the fit of (or one you know you’d like to alter) and you’ll be surprised at how much of the hard stuff is already done.

This pattern includes the CURVE size range
