We first featured The Pinafore Dress in Simply Sewing magazine issue 61, but we made a mistake when we sent the pattern envelope to the printers and incorrectly stated that it was available in sizes UK 6-24, when in fact our original pattern only included sizes UK 6-20.

So we're giving you the extra 2 sizes free in this post for anyone out there who brought the issue with these sizes in mind, or for anyone in general who would like to make a pinafore dress in sizes 22 or 24.

Read on to get our free digital sewing pattern for The Pinafore Dress in UK sizes 22 and 24:
