Beatrice Pinafore



Beatrice is from Much Ado About Nothing and is one of Shakespeare's most robust female characters. Bright, funny and with a wit as sharp as a knife she is fiercely loyal to her cousin, Hero. Going to extraordinary lengths to protect Hero's honour when she's accused of infidelity.

​She is adamant she will not marry and wants to remain totally independent. She even turns down the wealthy Don Pedro only to fall in love with Benedick, a soldier.

​I like a bit of plain talking and this a food old fashioned no-nonsense pinafore.  Beatrice is a great cover-all type of garment. There are no darts as it is a very loose fitting garment and designed to be worn over a T-shirt or sweatshirt, and the cross over at the back is enough to prevent the back gaping open.

The large curved patch pockets are bound at the top edge.

Version 1

is finished off with a bound edge all the way round.

Version 2

is finished off with a small hem

Version 3

is lined with a contrast fabric to enclose all the raw edges
