TSA-532 19th Century Pinafore pattern is for a simple smock style pinafore, that was worn throughout the 1800’s. The pinafore fastens at the back with three buttons. This style can be left plain or with the additions of ruffles and trims can be “fancied up.” A sash style belt is also included. Instructions are also included for two methods of construction: Period bias facing and a modern facing method.

Children get dirty. That is a fact of life. It does not matter if it is 2003 or 1863, things have not changed. There is no way to keep children and dirt apart. Pinafores, often also called aprons, were meant to protect children’s clothing from this dirt. At a time when much of a woman’s energies went into feeding and clothing her family, any labor-saving item such as a pinafore would have been greatly valued.

Fabric Requirements:
The amount of fabric required varies according to the size chosen and any desired ruffles.
Small: 2 yards 45” wide fabric
Medium: 2 ½ yards 45” wide fabric
Large: 3 yards 45”wide fabric
3 - 5/8” mother of pearl, wood or other washable buttons

The pattern is in three general sizes. We did not publish an X-Large size because girls of that size and age probably would have worn an adult style apron.
