My name is Tanya and I am a self-proclaimed fabric addict with a life long love of fabric, sewing and clothing design. In high-school, I worked at a fabric store at nights and on the weekends. I spent so much of my paycheck on fabric (hey, I had an employee discount...I couldn't resist) that my parents were amazed that I saved anything for college. I have a degree in Clothing and Textiles and I've held several jobs in the apparel, fashion and textiles industries including sales, inspection, construction, alterations, costuming and custom sewing.
All of my patterns are my original designs that are drawn, draped, and drafted by me. I'm doing what I love...could life be better?
Because of several customer requests, this PLUS SIZED version of the Sweet and Sassy Apron Pattern has been created for curvy gals.

About the apron:
This is a vintage inspired full apron with a sweetheart neckline (it can be made with or without the sweetheart accent band), a dart-fitted top (to curve with your curves) and a figure-flattering A-line skirt that measures 20" (51cm) from waist to hem. It features waist ties that can either be tied in a back bow or a front knot. The neckties are fully-adjustable so the apron will fit the way you want it to.
This apron is functional as well as cute. It has the option of one or two rounded patch pocket that are partially sewn into the side seams(perfect for a recipe card, your MP3 player, or your cell phone). There is an optional towel loop that you can put at the waistline to keep your towel handy so you can dry your hands on your towel and not make a mess of your cute new apron.
