THE WHITTAKER • Pattern
By Merchant & Mills, The Whittaker is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: A classic pinafore for work and play. With a buttoned side fastening, side and back pockets. Make it long with a back split or short just below the knee. Accentuate the detailing with contrast topstitching or keep it simple with matching thread.

For the facings, we would recommend either a cotton muslin or a slip viscose lining.
