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.

This apron design was tested on a variety of shapes and sizes and the pattern prints two sizes (Large and Extra Large). The approximate off the rack dress sizes range from 12 to 26. It was made to fit the following measurements:

Bust - Between 39" and 46" (99cm and 117cm)

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.
