Q&A with kellyedge

Merrypal asked:
We really need to carry on the traditions of sewing. Great job on the apron. Would love to see this in adult size. Any ideas?
kellyedge answered:
The book titled: Retro Aprons, by Cindy Taylor Oates is FABULOUS for adult aprons. She also sells a book for children's aprons. These books include multi-sized patterns for a flattering fit. I trace the patterns on pattern paper and then cut out the fabric. I've made several adult aprons from this book and have been very pleased with the results.
