Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should love your sewing machine and know how it works (we're talking a basic straight stitch here).
  • You should have a knowledge of basic sewing terms (like knowing that darts are more than a weapon or a game).

Pattern Description:

Do you love the corset look, but don't know when or where you'd possibly wear one? Wear this corset style apron everyday in your kitchen!

This PDF pattern and tutorial that will take you from start to finish in creating your own apron from fabrics that you choose. There are lots of detailed pictures and instructions to guide you along.

This ePattern includes:
*Materials and supplies lists
*Printable pattern
*16 pages of step-by-step layout, cutting, and sewing instructions
*Marking instructions
*76 full color instructional pictures
*BOTH customary unit (yards, inches, etc.) and metric unit (centimeters) measurements
*ALSO INCLUDES additional instructions for making a gathered half apron...it's almost like getting two patterns for the price of one!

Please note, because of the nature of this item, pattern is not eligible for a refund. However, I do stand by my product. If you should happen to have a problem while sewing this apron, I'm more than happy to help you via emails.

This is a full apron with a square neckline, a dart-fitted top (to curve with your curves) and a slightly gathered skirt. It features a corset style front with metal eyelets and ribbon lacings.

This apron design was tested on a variety of shapes and sizes and would be categorized as a Small/Medium (approximate off the rack dress sizes 2 to 12).

It was made to fit the following measurements:
Bust - Between 30" and 40"
Waist - Between 22" and 33"
Hips - Between 30" and 40"

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate - It's not a difficult pattern, but the front eyelets can be a little tricky if you've never used them before. Photos and instructions are included to guide you along, but it probably wouldn't be a good first project for a beginner :)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small/medium (approximate off-the-rack size 2 to 12).


  • 1 yard of fabric for skirt/bib/pocket
  • 1 yard accent fabric for ties and pocket/skirt bands.
  • 10 eyelets (1/4 inch size)
  • 2 yards of 3/8 inch wide ribbon
  • Small piece of fusible interfacing - 3" x 12"

You Will Also Need:

  • Eyelet tool for attaching eyelets
  • Thread to match
  • A good pair of scissors
  • Sewing pins
  • A ruler
  • A marking pen or pencil
  • A "dull-pointed" object (anything like a crochet hook, a chopstick, a very dull pencil, etc. - This will be used to make nice points at the ends of your neck ties and waist ties).
  • A straight long skinny object - a 1/2" to 3/4" dowel works best, but if you don't have a dowel you can use a thick crochet hook or even a long handled spoon for turning your ties.
