Cross-over straps, fun button closures and just a hint of fit-and-flare, our latest pattern is new-season ready!

We collaborated with the clever patternmaker behind Just Patterns, Delphine Colbeau, to create the Milton Pinafore. Channelling all the cottagecore vibes, this twist on a classic pinny is a wardrobe tour de force. Get meadow-ready by layering it over a tee or floaty peasant top or – if your inner cool-girl is calling – strap in the girls and dance the night away sans top. With straps that can be worn straight or crossed (they’re buttoned on the inside of the dart-cinched, sepa- rate waistband), the sewing fun is in the detail – concealed pockets, shaping bust darts and a statement-making button closure! Now hop on ya bike and add it to your to-sew list, pronto!

We’re super grateful to our sewing partner Spoonflower for helping to make our free patterns possible!

Their on-demand process significantly reduces materials, energy and water, with inks that meet Oeko-Tex 100 requirements and fabrics – including a Certified Organic range – that are ethically sourced.

We used Spoonflower’s Lightweight Cotton Twill with a textural, geometric print by Utah-based visual artist Holli Zollinger.
