Make a visual statement when you wear this "Sweet & Sassy" apron around the house. A desperate housewife you are not!

This is a vintage inspired full apron with a sweetheart neckline, a dart-fitted top (to curve with your curves) and a figure-flattering A-line skirt that measures 20" (51cm) from waist to hem. It features 2 1/2" (6cm) thick waist ties that are approximately 112" (284cm) from end to end and can either be tied in a back bow, a front knot, or a front bow. The neckties are 1 1/2" (4cm) wide and approximately 20" (51cm) long. They 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 rounded patch pocket (perfect for a recipe card, your MP3 player, or your cell phone).

Would work great as a kitchen apron for whipping up delicious food, or a hostess apron for entertaining guests.

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

Bust - Between 30" and 38" (76cm and 97cm)
Waist - Between 22" and 32" (56cm and 81cm)

The pattern makes a very cute apron. The instructions were very clear. I used laminated cotton for my apron and it worked really nicely.

The instructions are detailed and clear with lots of photos. The pattern is well-marked and goes together nicely. The end result is a nicely-finished, sturdy apron that looks cute but can survive lots of washing and use. Love it!


Post a Review

1 Yard [92 cm] Fabric (for skirt and bib)
1¼ Yard [114 cm] Contrast Fabric (for bib lining, waistband, waist ties, pocket and neckties)
Thread to match
**Half apron needs 3/4 yard [69 cm] of Fabric (for skirt) and 5/8 yard [57 cm] of fabric for waistband, pocket and waist ties.

Other Supplies:
A Good Pair of Scissors and Sewing Pins
A Sewing Machine (not a serger)
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.
