It's been a goal of mine to make a 40s pinafore dress in plus size...for like.....FOREVER!
I had to get my game in order before I could even attempt to draft one in my size (52 Bust, 47 waist and 62 hips). Here it is!
The design features are:
1. Button closed back
2. shoulder princess seams
3. one continuous ruffle from front to back waist
4. half circle skirt
5. self facing back enclosure
6 square neck with facings.
7. Sewn on contrast belt
That's pretty much what is on an original 1940s version. I didn't include pockets or ties, like they have.
Hope you enjoy it! I love comments/ questions!
