Apron

apron pattern pieces
This apron should be constructed from medium weight cotton.


You will need thread and 1 metre (or 1 yard) of fabric.

The following instructions are written with the assumption that you have sewn before. I hope they can be deciphered.

The solid dark lines indicate where to cut. The pink dotted lines indicate fold lines. The violet dotted lines indicate stitching.

2.) Sew the strap together at one end. Fold in half lengthwise with wrong sides together. (pink dotted lines are fold lines; violet dotted lines are stitches) Topstitch along the fold line. strap - pink dotted lines are fold lines; violet dotted lines are stitches

3.) With right sides together, sew the strap to the top edge of the apron, making sure that the unfinished edges are on the outside. Hem the top of the apron by folding over 1/4 inch and another 1/4 inch again. Ensure that the straps are pointing upwards. Stitch. Topstitch along the upper edge.
4.) Fold the ties in half lengthwise with right sides together. Sew one side of each tie to finish. Remember that the ties will hang down when the apron is tied so the finished edge should be at the bottom.

Turn the ties right side out and topstitch along the fold lines and the bottom of the ties. Sew the ties to the sides of the apron in the same manner as the strap, making sure that the unfinished edges are on the top of the apron.
