Pattern Details





Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

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:

This apron pattern is so versatile! The circular skirt can be made with one, two, or three layers and the bib can be made with a sweetheart neckline or a square neckline. The waist ties can be made to tie in a front bow or a back bow. There are also EXTRA INSTRUCTIONS for making a half apron (with one, two, or three layers). It's almost like getting two patterns in one!

The pattern pieces are PROFESSIONALLY DRAFTED and tiled for printing. Also included are directions for assembling the pattern tiles. The tiles can be printed out on standard 8.5" x 11" printer paper at home and taped together. No enlarging required.

This ePattern includes:
*Materials and supplies lists
*Printable pattern
*25 pages of step-by-step layout, cutting, and sewing instructions
*Marking instructions
*Over 53 full color instructional photos plus numerous computer drafted illustrations
*BOTH customary unit (yards, inches, etc.) and metric unit (centimeters) measurements

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 38" (76cm and 96cm)
Waist - Between 22" and 32" (56cm and 81cm)
Hips - Between 30" and 38" (76cm and 96cm)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

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


  • For 1 layer apron you will need 1 yard of fabric for the skirt and bib and 1 yard of accent fabric for the ties and waistband. You will also need 2 3/4 yards of bias tape.
  • For 2 layer apron you will need 1 yard of fabric for the top layer skirt and bib and 1 7/8 yards fabric for the bottom layer skirt, waistband, and ties. You will also need 5 1/2 yards of bias tape.
  • For 3 layer apron you will need 2 3/4 yards fabric for the skirts layers and bib and 3/4 yard fabric for the ties and waistband. You will also need 7 yards of bias tape.
  • For half apron fabric amounts, see the chart (along the side where the extra photos are).
  • Thread to match

You Will Also Need:

  • 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.

Also, the method of turning the strap tubes was by FAR the easiest I've ever seen! Took only seconds and the results were smooth and even. I used a square 1/2 in. piece of wood trim and that worked great combined with a rounded metal chopstick.

I loved ...

Excellent Apron for Lisa  June 23, 2013

I love this pattern and made it for my friend Lisa for her wedding shower. She loved it so much that she wore it all day at work! (we work at a special education pre-school) Everyone else at work loved the apron too!
The pattern was clearly written and easy to follow. I just had some difficulty with the fabric bunching and not laying flat in the last step, but that was probably my fault.
