A country hybrid of Daisy Duke and Mary Ann (from Gilligan's Island), this apron will have you two-stepping around your kitchen.

This is a vintage inspired full apron with a square neckline, a dart-fitted top (to curve with your curves) and a figure-flattering A-line skirt that measures 17" (51cm) from waist to hem. It features waist ties that can either be tied in a back bow, a front knot, or a front bow. 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 a two front cargo-type patch pockets (perfect for a recipe card, your MP3 player, or your cell phone).

As a bounus, this ePattern also includes:
*Additional instructions for making an a-line half's almost like getting two patterns for the price of one!
*Both customary unit (yards, inches, etc.) and metric unit (centimeters) measurements
*AND the pattern and instructions for the "Crazy Daisy" Corsage/Brooch. (An extra 3 pages and 15 photos with detailed instructions).

(Although this apron looks simply divine in denim, it also looks adorable in coordinating cotton prints.)

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 102cm)
Waist - Between 22" and 32" (56cm and 84cm)
Hips - Between 30" and 38" (76cm and 102cm)

7/8 Yard [80 cm] Fabric - 44/45” wide
OR 5/8 Yard [57 cm] of 60” wide - (for skirt and bib)
(NOTE: To go with the smaller yardage amount, fabric must be at least 60” wide...58” wide won’t be quite wide enough).
1 Yard [92 cm] Contrast Fabric (for bib lining, waistband, waist ties, pocket and neckties)
Add ¼ yard [23 cm] Contrast Fabric if doing a bottom ruffle
Thread to match
**Half apron needs 5/8 yard [57 cm] of fabric for skirt and 5/8 yard [57 cm] of fabric for waistband, pocket and waist ties plus another ¼ yard [cm] if doing a bottom ruffle

Other Supplies:
A Good Pair of Scissors and Sewing Pins
A Sewing Machine (A serger is helpful too, but not necessary)
A Ruler (a sewing ruler is nice, but any ruler that’s at least 12" [30 cm] in length will work fine)
A Fabric Marking Pen or Pencil (can use a regular graphite pencil in a pinch)
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 waist ties)
A Straight Long Skinny Object - a ½" to 3/4" [1.5 to 2 cm] wooden dowel works best, but if you don’t have a dowel you can use a long spoon handle, a thick crochet hook, or a clean broom handle for turning your ties.
