This pattern was created after receiving many requests for a plus sized version of the "Luscious Layers Apron". This apron pattern is so versatile! The circular skirt can be made with one, two, or three layers and the bib can be made with a sweetheart neckline or a square neckline. The waist ties can be made to tie in a front bow or a back bow. There are also EXTRA INSTRUCTIONS for making a half apron (with one, two, or three layers). It's almost like getting two patterns in one!
The pattern pieces are PROFESSIONALLY DRAFTED and tiled for printing. Also included are directions for assembling the pattern tiles. The tiles can be printed out on standard 8.5" x 11" printer paper at home and taped together. No enlarging required.
This ePattern includes:
*Materials and supplies lists
*25 pages of step-by-step layout, cutting, and sewing instructions
*Over 53 full color instructional photos plus numerous computer drafted illustrations
*BOTH customary unit (yards, inches, etc.) and metric unit (centimeters) measurements
This apron design was tested on a variety of shapes and sizes and the pattern prints two sizes (Large and Extra Large). The approximate off the rack dress sizes range from 12 to 26. It was made to fit the following measurements:
Bust - Between 39" and 46" (99cm and 117cm)
Waist - Between 30" and 40" (76cm and 102cm)
Hips - Between 39" and 48" (99cm and 122cm)
Bust - Between 48" and 54" (122cm and 137cm)
Waist - Between 41" and 46" (104cm and 117cm)
Hips - Between 48" and 56" (122cm and 142cm)
Skill Level: Beginner with some sewing experience
A fairly straightforward pattern with good visual instructions. A unique look.
This was the first apron I have ever made. I found the instructions and patterns easy to use. I would use this again.
Have made myself an apron from this pattern, personally I didn't like the apron. It has nothing to do with the pattern, it is a personal preface. Just to much bulk for my size, plus size. The pattern was easy to use and the apron came out looking like the picture, as my granddaughter say.

•Thread to match
You Will Also Need:
•A good pair of scissors
•A marking pen or pencil
•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 neck ties and waist ties).
•A straight long skinny object - a 1/2" to 3/4" dowel works best, but if you don't have a dowel you can use a thick crochet hook or even a long handled spoon for turning your ties.
