Bobbi skirt or pinafore sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons

BOBBI SKIRT AND PINAFORE - DIGITAL

Regular price £11.50

SEW YOUR OWN WARDROBE WINNER !

Say hello to Bobbi, a button-down skirt or pinafore that’s both classic and bang on trend. Endlessly versatile, it looks so different depending on the fabric you pick and the details you add. Go utility chic with a choice of three pockets, optional flaps and belt loops – or leave them off for an understated look.

It has a flattering shape thanks to the curved fitted waistband, princess seams at the back and slim-look bib on the pinafore. Bobbi will be a go-to garment in your me-made wardrobe.

Bobbi includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

Please read the information about digital pattern delivery before downloading. You will need Adobe Reader to print the pattern to the correct scale - you can download Adobe Reader for free. (Alternatively, you can order a gorgeous printed pattern to arrive in the post.)
