Pattern Description:

An apron top is a backless summer shirt, much like a halter style top. I discovered apron tops many years ago when my daughter was
a toddler. I began offering them on my web site soon after, including
nursing/breastfeeding ones. You can make them from just about any kind of woven fabric. I prefer 100% cotton quilting quality woven fabrics because they feel so nice against the skin. Hemp silk dupioni was the most popular choice with my customers.

This pattern is very easy for beginner seamstresses as it is basically a
rectangle. It's something fun, quick, and easy to make too! This apron top pattern is lined (or you can even make it reversible). It laces down the back and the straps tie at the bottom. There are some options throughout the pattern so read through the entire pattern before you begin. I like to make a coordinating strip skirt or bloomers for little girls to go with an apron top.


  • Fabric - 1 yd each of two different fabrics works well or several large scraps to piece together
  • Thread to match
