The Beatrice Pinafore
Beatrice is a great cover-all type of garment. There are no darts as it
is a very loose fitting garment and designed to be worn over a T-shirt or sweatshirt,
and the cross over at the back is enough to prevent the back gaping open.
The large curved patch pockets are bound at the top edge.
Version 1 is finished off with a bound edge all the way round.
Version 2 is finished off with a small hem
Version 3 is lined with a contrast fabric to enclose all the raw edges
to medium weight fabrics such as printed craft cotton, linen, poplin, denim,
can be made from ready-made bias binding and you will need 7 - 8m.
using 140cm wide fabric there will be enough spare fabric left to cut the bias strips
for the binding.
