Yards and Yards Original: The Best Apron Ever

I have 3 little girls, a love for sewing, lots of fabric... what to do? Make aprons, of course.

So, I hunted high and low for the perfect apron and it was not to be found. Anywhere.

And so (deep breath) I made my own pattern. And I LOVE it. And I'm going to share with all of you! But it will take a few days to get the pattern all photographed and I just couldn't wait. So here are a few pics of the finished product.


There is that lovely Freshcut by Heather Bailey. I love that fabric even after 26 bolts of it. (I talk about that over HERE.)

The very best things about this pattern are:

5. It's adorable... ruffles and all.
4. It's very washable and sturdy.
3. The patterns is easy to change and comes in 3 sizes.
2. FREE and EASY
1. THE TIE IS ADJUSTABLE! There are no awkward ties around the neck. No not-so-kid-friendly D-rings. It is so easy to adjust so it fits the wearer just right. Just slides to where you want it so the neck is never too loose or too tight.

I can't wait to show you this pattern! Finally, the perfect apron!


PS. Linking up to some awesome parties!

Oh I like the adjustable neck with no D rings. Great idea!

This would look so great with some vintage fabric. I'd love to see that when you are all done.

And really, it is easy. I still feel like a novice sometimes too!

I'll get the pattern up this week sometime.

I don't know if it's just my computer, but I'm unable to see parts of the cutting specifics on the large size.... can someone please tell me the cutting sizes for the pocket, pocket ruffle, and bottom ruffle in the large size.
