- Fashion Fabric or Home Decor Fabric: 1.1m
- Water-soluble marker
- French Curve **not necessary but will help
Fold you fabric in half selvedge to selvedge and follow the measurements and diagram below to draw out your apron pattern.
Following the diagram below mark the halfway point of G. Using a french curve draw a curve from the top of F to the mark we just made on G, then connect it up to the top of H. This will create a nice curve for your armhole. Draw a straight line from the end of I to the top of L. Draw a curve from K to the top of L.
Using the pattern you just created cut out the following pieces.
Facing – Cut 1 on fold
Pocket – Cut 1
Apron – Cut 1 on fold
Strap – Cut 2
Seam Allowance = 1/2″
Place the pocket wrong side up, fold the top 10″ edge down 1/4″ and press.
Flip the right side up and fold the top edge back 1″, pin in place. Stitch down either side of the 1″ flap, clip corners.
Turn flap right way out. With wrong side up, press seam allowance in. Flip pocket right way up and topstitch across the bottom of the flap to secure.
With the apron right side up mark the middle of the apron. You can do this by folding it in half and creating a light crease. Measure down 14″ and mark. Find the halfway point of the pocket and match up with the mark on the apron. Pin your pocket in place and topstitch the side and bottom edges. Do not topstitch the top of the pocket.
With right sides together pin the widest end of one strap piece to the back of the apron. Stitch to secure. Repeat on the opposite side with remaining strap. Serge seam allowance or zig-zag stitch to prevent fraying.
Place apron with the wrong side up and fold bottom edge, straps and sides in 1/4″ and press. Fold the bottom edge, sides and strap edges in 1/4″ again and topstitch to secure. Fold armholes in 1/4″ and press. Do not stitch.
With apron right side up bring (1) strap across and pin to the apron front, 1/4″ from the edge and right sides together. Repeat for the remaining strap on the other place. Stitch in place to secure.
Place the facing wrong side up and fold 1 long side up 1/4″ and press.
Mark the halfway point of the facing and match with the halfway point of the apron front right side. The facing will overhang 1/4″ at either side. Stitch across to secure using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
Flip facing up and edge stitch to seam allowance. Flip back down and stitch down both ends of facing, 1/2″ from the edge.
Turn apron wrong side up, pull straps up and fold facing down. Topstitch across the facing bottom to secure. Fold armhole seam in a further 1/4″ and press. Topstitch to secure.
