Have you ever wanted to quickly sew up some aprons to give away as holiday gifts, birthday gifts, or hostess gifts...but you couldn't find an easy pattern that was still cute and feminine? Look no longer! This apron can be sewn in under an hour and takes just under one yard of fabric! As part of my new U2rban Apron Collection (U2=Under 1 hour + Under 1 yard) this PDF pattern and tutorial 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
*9 pages of step-by-step layout, cutting, and sewing instructions
*Over 35 full color instructional pictures
*BOTH customary unit (yards, inches, etc.) and metric unit (centimeters) measurements
*ALSO INCLUDES Pocket Pack 2 - a packet of PDF pocket patterns and instructions that you can use to change the look of the aprons you sew (a $4 value).
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)
(Please note that the claim that this apron can be made in under an hour is not a guarantee that it will be made in under an hour in every circumstance. Also, the claim only includes sewing time on the apron itself and does not include cutting time or the extra time it may take to sew the pocket - depending on which pocket you choose).
Also, this apron tends to run on the skimpy side. If you're looking for an apron pattern in a similar style, but more coverage, try the Haltered Hottie Apron Pattern http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/other/haltered-hottie-apron/45125?fresh=true

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?
