The word "apron" is derived from the French word "naperon"? For many years, the phrase "a naperon" was mispronounced until it became the term "an apron," which is what is used today. For hundreds of years, though, aprons have not simply been used as a way to keep your clothes clean during messy kitchen tasks. During the reign of Charles II in England, aprons were more than just tools of function; learning how to make an apron that made a statement became the name of the game. 

Women would compete in creating apron patterns to see who could come up with the most elaborate designs. Oftentimes, the gorgeous results of these stiff competitions were passed on from the women who created them to their favorite family members. Full aprons began to gain popularity during the American colonial era, when access to fabric slowly began to become easier. Thankfully, these days a DIY apron pattern is as easy to come by as the fabric itself.

The apron shown in the picture accompanying the Baking Cakes DIY Apron Pattern is lovely. However, the instructions that are provided in the link are for a different apron, although it is very cute in pink with the white polka dots. I would have liked some more photos of the steps involved in the execution of this sewing project. I have to agree with some of the comments that ask "where are the pockets?" Pockets are easy to add, and they are so practical on aprons. Now, just how many aprons do you plan on making? I love aprons, and I always find an excuse to make more.

Easy trick to keeping food out of pockets just put the pockets on the inside of the apron or make it off the side so you don't have to worry about food or ingredients getting in them.

Perfect for baking, no pockets catching flour. Thinking of making a smaller apron with pockets to go over it, so I can have pockets when I need them though.

Very cute, but... where are the pockets???? How in the world do women in this day and age function in aprons without pockets?
