Children's sewing pattern in sizes 2 - 14 suitable for sewists with basic skills. For use with woven fabrics.

The Zero Waste Pinafore pattern by Thread Faction Studio features:

  • Super easy to sew with step-by-step instructions with pictures.
  • The whole thing is made from a simple rectangle of fabric with no leftovers.
  • You can choose from 3 different options for the front closures.
  • Instructions also included to help you with fit.

Sizes: The pattern starts at a size 2 and goes up to a size 14 (kids sizing).

File types: A4/Letter size PDF (for home printers), A0 size PDF (for printshops) and a projector file too.

Difficulty: Basic Skills

All the patterns in the Zero Waste Collection are cut from a single rectangular piece (or pieces if there is a lining) of fabric with no waste. This leaves you with only usable rectangular remnants the size of which depends the size of the pattern and the width of the original fabric.

We know that this type of pattern cutting is not a 'fix all' for waste in the sewing world, but it is our step in the right direction and we really hope you enjoy the patterns as much as we do.

This is a multi-sized pattern in children's sizes 2 - 14.  A link to the size charts including all measurements is included just below the product title above.


This pattern is designed for medium to heavy weight woven fabrics or stable (less than 25% stretch) medium to heavy weight knit fabrics. These include (but are not limited to) quilting cotton, linen, denim, cotton drill, lightweight canvas, or rugby jersey and track suiting with little to no stretch.

  • Co-ordinating thread as needed
  • 2 buttons approx 2.5cm /1" (optional)

Versatile Zero Waste Pattern

As an experienced sewist I found this pattern simple to understand, use and make. I’m very pleased with the first dress from this pattern and I can already imagine multiple variations not to mention a good size range that should see my daughter through a good number of years.
