I’ve meaning to make an apron since I realized that baking at random usually got some of my better clothes messed up with flour. But never fear! The internet is full of fantastic free patterns!
I searched for a while and found many free patterns (check out TipNut for a massive list of patterns). I finally decided on this one from CraftyGal . With a title like “Dressing for Kitchen Success” I couldnt really refuse.
I chose some very loud fabrics I got for christmas about two years ago and some lace I got from Daiso, my very favorite store.
Here are the results! It was quite an easy pattern!
-When the instructions say “waist”, it’s just waist…not your “low rise jeans waist”. ‘Doh!
-Lace hides everything!
Adjustments to make:
-Make sash shorter
-Make bib shorter…apparently my torso shrunk like 5 inches in the process of making this apron.
-Cut off loose strings
Waist closeup…pretty lace! (It got folded in the other pics so you cant see it as well)
Pocket closeup….more lace!
Pretty neat, no? It’s a great first sewing project I think, give it a try. 🙂
