Rosy Posy: The Girls Jersey Pinafore Dress

This is a little girls dress sewing pattern PDF (not the finished garment) for a girls jersey pinafore dress with pockets. The pattern also includes the tunic dress pattern with embroidery.

This pinafore dress can be worn alone or with a t shirt under. The girls jersey pinafore dress pattern features large pockets on the sides of the dress and gathered cap sleeves. The shorter tunic option can be worked in a small gauge gingham with embroidered roses for that personal touch. Charts for the cross stitch embroidery are included.

Features for your Sensory Child

  • The seams are worked on the outside so that the inside is smooth and has no scratchy itchy seams or labels.
  • The pinafore dress is very loose and comfy and tight clothes can be worn under.
  • It can be worn either way round.
  • The dress is fastened with Velcro.
  • The pocket contains ribbon tabs – great for attaching all those ‘mustn’t lose’ bits and pieces
  • Make this dress in recycled fabric (dads old shirt, mums old dress or a charity/thrift shop find), to avoid the use of stiff new fabrics and also save the planet.
