This pinafore dress is made of 6 narrow panels with godets for extra width at the hem. It has patch pockets sewn into the side and front seams and side tabs to give waist shaping. Simple shapes mean that very little of your handwoven fabric will be wasted. This was woven on the Ashford 12in (30cm) loom.
From December 2017 also included are instructions on making the tops from this pattern
Get Weaving- original sewing patterns for your hand woven fabrics, by Sarah Howard (author Simply Woven 1986, Creative Weaving 2007, Get Weaving 2014).
The designs are suitable for a variety of loom widths so if you can weave a scarf they will help you move on to weaving a complete wardrobe. See my booklet "Cutting Without Fear" for ways to prevent your cut fabric from unravelling
Full size pattern (S/M/L/XL), cutting and sewing instructions included.
Sarah has been a teacher for over 30 years and has inspired and helped many people to begin weaving and making clothes. The patterns are all tried and tested
Great pattern, currently weaving for it. Well laid out and the nice thick pattern paper is appreciated! Looking forward to making this and more of your patterns! :)

Sarah's patterns are very creative and wearable. Her patterns are easy to follow and allow you to do much more with your weaving than just scarves and shawls. These are the best patterns I've seen that are made especially for weaving cloth widths. I'm anxious to see what Sarah comes up with next. Wonderful transaction as always. Arrived ahead of schedule.
