Use an upcycled pillowcase to create the Retro Apron. If you're looking for easy aprons to sew, you've found the right apron sewing pattern. Follow these directions and create a lovely apron to match your kitchen decor. This apron idea is insanely thrifty and extra cute. No one will know you used your old pillowcases to sew up free apron patterns when you wear this cutie. Bake like Betty Crocker and look like Betty Draper when you wear this almost too-cute, vintage apron.

Love it!! another must make for me!

I like that it has lots of pictures to show how to do the steps. I'm working on an apron made from a curtain panel (only had one panel), and I think these pictures are going to help me with a few of the steps in mine. Then maybe I'll try this pattern with some of my other material.

Hi, cyrfamily 9628934. You can access the full pattern by clicking on the link that says, "Click here for sewing pattern." The pattern is a PDF document, so please make sure your Adobe Reader software is updated. Thanks! - Editors of AllFreeSewing

where is the pattern?

I really love this apron!

This is just darling! my daughter in law just loves vintage aprons so I'll be making one out of vintage flour sacks and an embroidered motif from a ruined table runner as the pocket. Sometimes I'm really glad I don't throw much away!!

Hi sewinglady1951, I printed the pattern just fine. The problem may be with your printer setting. Try adjusting those. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeSewing

Wouold have loved to print out the instructions for this but the file is 17" by 10". Impossible to get on a piece of paper!!
