Do you ever wish you had Super Powers? The ability to wash dishes at lightning speed...to make gourmet meals from leftovers...to slow time so you can do everything on your "to-do" list...? Just put on this Wonder Mom apron and feel the power! Okay, so it won't give you Super Powers, but it will make you look like a Superhero (and it may even give you the silly freedom to play super heroes with your kids every once in a while).
This would be perfect for hosting a super hero party for your kids (or even your adult friends). It would also make a great gift for any wonderful woman in your life, or buy it for yourself!
The Super Wonder Mom apron features an a-line skirt with a rounded skirt pocket and a your choice of a square or sweetheart neckline.
This pattern includes two different bib styles: (1) A sweetheart neckline with a peaked waistband and (2) A square neckline with a straight waistband.
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
*21 pages of step-by-step layout, cutting, and sewing instructions
*Over 80 full color instructional photos plus numerous computer drafted illustrations
*10 Pages of applique shape templates and 2 full alphabets (one small and one large)
*BOTH customary unit (yards, inches, etc.) and metric unit (centimeters) measurements
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 96cm)
Waist - Between 22" and 32" (56cm and 81cm)
Hips - Between 30" and 38" (76cm and 96cm)
Skill level: Intermediate. The straight waistband is fairly easy, but the peaked waistband can be tricky to work with.
Directions are way too long and give too much of the owners personal perception. I'v been sewing for more than 50 years and found it quite complicating. The apron itself is a very cute concept, (I made the Wonder Woman). Unfortunately, I think the skirt has a poor fall to it when finished. It was pricey for a one size item, but I can't say I regret buying it.
2/3 Yard [61 cm] Fabric for Skirt
1/3 Yard [30.5 cm] Fabric for Bib and Lining
1 Yard [91.4 cm] Fabric for Waistband, Waist Ties, and Neck Ties
Fabric scraps (if appliques are desired)
Thread to match
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.

**Recently, I made the decision to allow finished products to be made from most of the patterns that I create and sell. When I created this particular pattern, however, I decided that it would be best to stipulate that the super hero patterns are for personal use only. The reason why? This pattern was meant to be used as a generic, every-woman’s super hero apron pattern. I realize that there are a great many super heroes and super hero fans out there. Most of these adored super heroes and their symbols (such as Superman’s “S”) are produced and legally protected under a licensed trademark agreement. If someone were to purchase my apron pattern, and use it to produce and sell super hero aprons with trademarked symbols on them and/or using the hero’s name, that person could find himself/herself in legal trouble. This is one of the reasons I do not include any trademarked super heroes' names or symbols in my patterns. Thank you for understanding.
