apron pattern

Simple apron pattern. Click on the images to enlarge/save. Because this is hand written, please let me know in the comments if you have a hard time interpreting my scratches.


  1. Eeep! So cute. Thanks for sharing. Congrats and good luck with your new bidness too!

  2. You are very welcome! Also thanks for the well wishes company wise.

  3. What a pretty apron! I love the halter-style top!! I linked to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:


  4. I love aprons and this is a fresh idea for aprons. Thanks fo sharing it. You look like a small you think this is a one size fits all, or do you think I might need adjusting somehow for size 18? (hate to admit that, but on the other hand, a year ago I was a size 22...I'm a work in progress)

  5. That a darling apron. I may have to try to make it.
    I just found your blog and I'm fascinated by it! I will have to spend some time looking through it. So far, I'm amazed!
    The sock pig---adorable and genius!
    Enamel flower pin---pretty and genius!
    Painted bird---again, adorable and genius!
    This apron---again, pretty and genius!
    You're a genius!

  6. Thanks for the props guys! Dee, you raise a very interesting point.

    Women larger than a size 8 may want to adjust the waist band length, skirt width and bottom measurement of the top pieces. Start with the waist band length- measure yourself hip to hip, then add 1" to the length (this gives you the normal seam allowance). The skirt is around double the total waist band length, and the top pieces' bottom measurments are 2/3 the waist band length each. Your gathering stitches should bunch the material so that it allows for 1/2" seam on either side of the waist band. Remember it's easier to remove the running stitches, so before running this through a sewing machine (if you have one) you may want to pin together and adjust if needed. Feel free to comment back here if you still run into problems.

  7. You are so generous! Thanks for sharing your talents. I just found this today!

  8. Just found you!... love your ideas!
    I'm going to make your apron for my daughter!... It is so pretty!!
    I am following you, now, and want to look over more of your work/ideas!
    *Thank you!!*

  9. Hey, thank you for the pattern! I came across the pattern doing a google search. I have it all cut out but was hoping you might help with some questions before I start sewing and mess it all up. From your photos, it looks like the waistband is much wider than the 1.5" that I will have once I fold it in half and turn it inside out. Is it really only 1.5" wide? Also, when you attach the waistband to the skirt and top pieces, are the seams exposed on the back? Did you serge those seams prior to gathering the pieces?

    If it matters, I am using one-sided fabric.

    Thank you so much for sharing your talents.

  10. I was wondering how many yards of fabric I should buy to make the apron. Thanks. I love the design.

  11. I love this design. I am having trouble reading your notes only do to size of writing. I have saved the image to a document and it appears a bit larger! I wish it were even larger - print wise. Just adore this and should be making it soon

  12. I was excited to find this pattern! Just got the fabric, and will be getting to work on it soon :)

  13. I really like the fresh perspective you did on the issue. I will be back soon to check up on new posts! Thank you!
