Retro Apron

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The topstitching along the edges gives it a clean, finished look. It came out just as I'd pictured it in my head. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Aprons are easy because you don't need a pattern to fit exactly. Just hold the fabric up to your body to see what the general size and shape is that you want, and go at it!

What you will need

  • Blue gingham
  • off-white plain blend

This is awesome! I'm about to do 3 apron orders here myself and I really like the style of this one. You did d a great job on it! It's very retro and flirty too. Time to update my own stash I think. Thanks for the inspiration. :0)

Sweet apron! A great shape and nice little details. What pattern did you use?
thenchuff answered:
I didn't use a pattern, I just kind of measured from my waist down to where I wanted the bottom to end and then up to where I wanted it, cut out rectangles of those dimensions and rounded off the corners. Then I just gathered a long strip of fabric folded in half and sewed it into the edge for the ruffle.
