I love reading all the cheery comments on this vintage apron pattern and it just goes to show you that practical can also mean pretty too! I think I would add two pockets on this one and I could see it being made in practical cotton fabri or even industrial oil cloth if you needed it for hot o splatters, or even in a sheer frilly fabric for looks only! Fun!

This apron reminds me of the ones my mother woreand I always had a little matching one to wear after I outgrew bibs. I have some 3 inch wide, pre-gathered white eyelet trim and some 1 inch wide eyelet that Ill use on the edges to speed up the sewing process. I like fairly wide ties on an apron like this so the bow looks perky and feminine.

I would love to make this apron but why can I not download or copy the pattern?

This is the kind of apron I remember my grandmother and great-grandmother wearing when I was little. The one with a big pocket and a ruffle. They wore them proudly as they cooked washed them out and hung to dry for next time. Such a great and quick tutorial to use. I need to make some for gifts. Thanks for tutorial and memories. Anyone else have any memories of this?


I made this over the last two nights, and I will be making another one for a friend. The only thing it doesn't talk about in the patter is the ruffle on the top. It could have used more pictures of the process for clarification.

Love this pattern! Made 5 aprons to give as Valentine's presents using this pattern. Thanks so much!

I made it yesterday and I really like it. I'm new using the sewing machine and it came out really nice. IF I CAN DO IT ANYONE CAN DO IT LOL. THANKS

Hi Crissyca - I can't find the patern either! What are we doing wrong folks? Or not doing?! thanks Julia
