Sew Bibs // Pinafores Pattern Round Up

Hi friends! I am so thrilled with the response that we’ve gotten to our #sewbibs challenge. It seems like lots of people are excited about sewing dungarees, overalls, and pinafores. We have already started seeing projects showing up on Instagram– check out #sewbibs to follow along.

Did you see that Meg posted a round up of overalls and dungarees patterns on Monday? There are so many patterns available and she highlighted which patterns come in a larger size range for the curvy sewists out there.

Wednesday, Heidi did a great post on ready to wear inspiration for overalls and pinafores. I love looking at ready to wear clothes and trying to match up sewing patterns to make my own versions– this was a really helpful post!

Jessamy will be posting next week with lots of inspiration from the sewing community. (She’s inspiring me with the Rifle Paper Co Ronja dungarees she’s making!)

Today I have a round up of pinafores/overall dress patterns.  I love that there are so many variations on the pinafore– there are casual dungaree dresses, sleek skirts, full skirts, cocoon shapes, and even apron dresses.

I hope you find something to tempt you to join into our challenge! (Don’t forget we have lots of sponsor discounts if you need supplies to sew your bibs! Scroll down in this post for the complete list.)

  1. Thank you for noting which patterns come in a larger size range! Its very helpful. I just joined the overall/pinafore sewing craze in January but I have jumped in feet first. I now have a pair overalls and two York Pinafores. Now what to make next?
